I want to put my rac db on os hp 11.11 in flashback on mode.

our rac db on raw device no CFS or ASM so how can i do that.

I followed the steps and when i get to put my first node in flashback on mode give me message to stop the other node

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-38777: database must not be started in any other instance.

then i do that and put the first node in flashback on mode and when i try to start the another node give me the following error:

ORA-38701: Flashback database log 1 seq 1 thread 1: "/d01/flashback/MRAW/flashba
ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-38777: database must not be started in any other instance.

By the way I use two seperate directory for db_recovery_file_dest not shared one .

You only need to enable flashback on one of the
instances, the other instances will then startup in
flashback mode. Try the following:

1. Shutdown all your RAC instances on all nodes
2. "Startup mount" one of the instances
3. Issue the "alter database flashback on;" command
4. Start the other instances
5. Run "select flashback_on from v$database;" to

Best regards.
