Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to assist those who are implementing Oracle® Real Application Clusters on SuSE® Linux Enterprise Server 10 running on IBM® BladeCenter® servers and IBM TotalStorage® disk storage systems. The information provided herein is based on experiences gained working on creating test environments at the IBM / Oracle International Competency Center, and available documentation from IBM, Oracle, and Novell®.

In this paper, we describe activities needed to prepare for and successfully install SuSE® Linux Enterprise Server 10 64-bit and Oracle 10g RAC 64-bit on IBM® BladeCenter® servers and IBM TotalStorage® Disk Systems. The operating system environments described will be the 2.6 kernel-based Novell® SuSE® Linux Enterprise Server 10 (SLES10).

An implementation of Oracle RAC consists of 3 steps:
1. Planning the hardware for Oracle RAC implementation
2. Configuring the servers and storage
3. Installing and configuring Oracle clusterware and database
