I'd setup a 2-node RAC having names as rac1 and rac2. I'm trying to install the grid infrastructure on my machine using the Oracle VirtualBox. But at the time of pre-requisite checking it says that the ORACLE CLUSTERWARE is not running on both nodes.
When I manually try starting the cluster and crs using crsctl on both the nodes it says :-
CRS-4640: Oracle High Availability Services is already active
CRS-4000: Command Start failed, or completed with errors.
When I try checking the status using "crsctl check crs " :-
CRS-4638: Oracle High Availability Services is online
CRS-4535: Cannot communicate with Cluster Ready Services
CRS-4529: Cluster Synchronization Services is online
CRS-4533: Event Manager is online
Kindly guide me through the troubleshooting process.
Thanks in Advance
look in the logfiles (alterlog) of the clusterware ($GI_HOME/log/<node>/alert<node>.log) for more information.
Refer to the corresponding logs (most likely cssd or crsd.log) what error really exists.
The crsd.log file shows an error message as "OCR context init failure" and "Error in network address and interface operations".
The cssd.log file shows no considerable or severe error messages.
Still the output for cluster and crs startup are the same as I posted in the first thread-box.
thanx a lot ssolbach..... Now my cluster is working fine and everything is working good.... That problem was of network related I suppose..... I de-configured everything and reinstalled the software and now everything is working fine.....
