I have a 2 node Oracle RAC cluster, one of them got frozen from time to time. So I have to replace it with a new server. I already set up the new server with ORacle Linux 5.3 and use "yum install" upgrade the OS (we have service contract with Oracle). I also read this document http://www.databasejournal.com/features/oracle/print.php/3929556 but don't know where should I begin. Experts here, do you have any reference.

Our DB is oracle 11g R2.

thanks.

I'm not a RAC expert but this question came across as Neglected so I am posting what I can.

I assume the other not is still part of the cluster?

If so, it should be just adding a new node then removing a node.

Have you see the following article?

I would always start with the docs:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E14072_01/rac.112/e10717/adddelclusterware.htm

There also seems to be a few whitepapers/guides out there if you Google for them.  I'm afraid I cannot suggest any never having set up RAC myself.
