Using link aggregation/ NIC bonding for Oracle Clusterware
Use a native NIC bonding solution to provide redundancy, in case of NIC failures.
Make sure that a link configured under a aggregated link or NIC bond is not configured as a separate LLT link.
When LLT is configured over a bonded interface, do one of the following steps to prevent GAB from reporting jeopardy membership:
Using PrivNIC/MultiPrivNIC agents
The PrivNIC and MultiPrivNIC agents are no longer supported in Oracle RAC 188.8.131.52 and later versions for managing cluster interconnects. For 184.108.40.206 and later versions, Veritas recommends the use of alternative solutions such as bonded NIC interfaces or Oracle HAIP.
Use the PrivNIC agent when operating system limitations prevent you from using NIC bonding to provide high availability using multiple network interfaces.
Use the MultiPrivNIC agent when operating system limitations prevent you from using NIC bonding to provide high availability and increased bandwidth using multiple network interfaces.
For more deployment scenarios that illustrate the use of PrivNIC/MultiPrivNIC deployments, see the appendix "SF Oracle RAC deployment scenarios" in this document.
