    Is a worker node mandatory in GRID environment

      Here's the scenario. We have two nodes and we are planning to setup a grid environment with High availability.

      We have licenses for both Grid and HA.

      The question is, can we setup both nodes as Gateway nodes?

      I know it is mandatory to have a Gateway node as it performs special tasks that a worker node cannot but can a gateway node also play the role of a worker node. I think it does but just want to confirm it.

      As far as my knowledge goes, we need 2 gateway nodes for HA (Primary and Backup in case the primary goes down) and we need minimum 2 nodes for grid.
