 Oracle RS/6000 SP vs. Oracle RS/6000

Hi,

what are the differences between Oracle RS/6000
and Oracle RS/6000 SP. Why is ist necessary to run
Oracle RS/6000 SP on the SP. Oracle RS/6000
also runs on the SP, but it isn't suppoted from
Oracle.

Thanks

You are right.  The SP and the RS/6000 code is different for V7.3.
The main differences are in the way oracle uses datafiles on the
different platforms as well as how Oracle generates the SCN number.
With the SP, the SCN number is generated from the SP's high
performance switch clock.  The header block for each datafile is also
different.  These differences are present whether you start oracle on
a single node of the SP or start up the parallel server and run
multiple instances.  Also, if you cluster RS/6000's together, you will
use HACMP to provide shared disk access as well as use the HACMP lock
manager.

Hope this helps
Regards,
JimO.
