Extending RAC 11gR2 to 4th node

I put together a follow-up video to the 3-node install where I add a 4th node of RAC 11gR2 in VMWare successfully, including extending the database to a total 4 instances.

In less than 10 minutes of video, you will see the cloning of the Grid Infrastructure 11gR2 home, cloning of the Database 11gR2 home, and creation of a 4th instance all running in VMWare.

addNode.sh has changed slightly; it no longer seems to allow an interactive Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) run.

I hope you enjoy this video!

    In fact , I will have two power Sun machines(may be M9000) for 36 RACs(2 nodes / RAC). M9000 just support 24 hard Domains, so Some small size RACs have to share CRS, user access RAC using self VIP. so I need some VIP on same Node. I am wondering how voting or OCR can support so many RAC. let say if Node1 of Oracle RAC1 head-break, how about RAC2 on Node1?

    11g CRS have good user role, admin can grant some role to other oracle, plz allow me add 3 questions:
    1. if I setup two rac on same CRS, can I use diffent oracle user, such as oracle1 and oracle2.
    2. if oracle 10g support user role, so that I can grant some CRS prilege to other user.
    3. Can I use root to setup CRS, usually I use oracle to setup CRS, but now I have oracle1 ,oralcle2 ,oracle3 …
