  Adding a Node to an Oracle RAC 10g Release 2 Cluster on Linux - (CentOS 5.3 / iSCSI) — (03-September-2009)

As your organization grows so too does your need for more application and 
database resources to support the company's IT systems. Oracle RAC 10g 
provides a scalable framework which allows DBA's to effortlessly extend the 
database tier to support this increased demand. As the number of users and 
transactions increase, additional Oracle instances can be added to the Oracle 
database cluster to distribute the extra load.

I recently published an extension to my article 
"Building an Inexpensive Oracle RAC 10g Release 2 on Linux - (CentOS 5.3 / iSCSI)". 
Contained in this new article are the steps required to add a single node to an 
already running and configured two-node Oracle RAC 10g Release 2 environment on 
the CentOS 32-bit (x86) platform. Although this article was written and tested 
on CentOS 5.3 Linux, it should work unchanged with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 
Update 3.
