This script automates the failover process to the secondary Oracle database on the remote site. The failover process is part of the Disaster Recovery solution described in the Dell white paper "Disaster Recovery of Oracle Database Standard Edition (SE) and Standard Edition One (SE1) on Dell EqualLogic PS Series iSCSI Storage Systems". The script automates the following tasks during the failover process for Linux operating systems (Oracle Linux 5 and RHEL 5):

1. Discover the iSCSI recovery volumes from the secondary hosts

2. Log into the iSCSI recovery volumes from the secondary hosts

3. Configure Device Mapper Multipath to the iSCSI recovery volumes from the secondary hosts
