you can have 4 configured in pacemaker 4 oracle instance(failover
mode), using 4 resource group in this way"

resourcegroup -> filesystem->vip->oracleinstance->oracle_listener

If you want to use lvm with your oracle instance for space management:

resourcegroup -> lvm_resource->filesystem->vip->oracleinstance->oracle_listener

> all the 16 lvms are ext4 filesystem as per customer requirement and i

> a/c to customer requirement i need to set 4 virtual ips (2 on each nodes) so
> i created 4 virtual ips and i alligned these virtual ips one for each
