SAP on VMware with Oracel RAC

Hi All

We are going to use VMWare ESX 3.5 Update 4 for SAP and Database will be on Oracle RAC.

I have few doubts:

1.For HA for SCS/ASCS we are using two VM server but Windows 2008 doesn't work with SCSI 2 (since ESX is on SCS2) ..this is required for Clustering. So will it be advisable to install SCS/ASCS for different system (ERP Portal BI etc) on Windows 2003 and App server CI and DI on Windows 2008 .All on VMWare.

2. If we installe the DBs for all these applications on Oracle RAC 11g CRS and RDBMS 10.2.0.4 ..what are the important things i need to take care.

Thanks in Adavance and hope to hear from you!!

Regards

Ajay

PS : SAP has't yet recommended yet Oracle CRS 11g but we have no choice.

    This is not supported:

      Hello Ajay,

      1.For HA for SCS/ASCS we are using two VM server but Windows 2008 doesn't work with SCSI 2 (since ESX is on SCS2) ..this is required for Clustering.

      Yes, this is one approach.

      The other approach is, you put your (A)SCS on a 1 vCPU virtual machine and activate the Fault Tolerance feature of VMware.
