The section in the docs on removing a node from a cluster,

[[http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/rac.112/e16794/adddelclusterware.htm#BEIFDCAF]]

includes this sentence
Quote:
Also, in a Grid Plug and Play cluster, if you have nodes that are unpinned, Oracle Clusterware forgets about those nodes after a time and there is no need for you to remove them.

I am told by a colleague that this means that if you simply switch off a node for a certain period of time (a day? A week? A year?) it will be automatically removed from the Cluster. I can't find any more information about this, can anyone confirm or deny? I find it a bit worrying.

John.
