      Hi All,

      I am trying to install Oracle RAC 11GR2 on two HP-UX 11.31 IA64 hosts and followed below steps, but at the time of running "root.sh" on first host it's throwing below error and fails;

      <snap>

      .

      ===============================================
      Configuration steps followed on HP-UX:
      ===============================================

      1. Disabled ipfilter.

      2. umask is 0022, edited /etc/profile file with "umask 022".

      3. users, folders & permission

      #groupadd -g 1000 oinstall
      #groupadd -g 1020 asmadmin
      #groupadd -g 1021 asmdba
      #groupadd -g 1031 dba
      #groupadd -g 1000 oinstall

      #mkdir /home/oracle
      #mkdir /home/grid

      #useradd -u 1100 -g oinstall -G dba,asmdba,asmadmin -d /home/grid grid
      #useradd -u 1101 -g oinstall -G dba,asmdba,asmadmin -d /home/oracle oracle
      #chown oracle:oinstall /home/oracle
      #chown grid:oinstall /home/grid

      #passwd oracle
      #passwd grid

      #mkdir -p /var/RAC/11.2.0/grid --> ### Grid Base ###
      #mkdir -p /var/RAC/grid --> ### Grid Home ###
      #mkdir -p /var/RAC/oracle/ODB     --> ### Oracle DB Installation (Oracle Base) ###
      #mkdir -p /var/RAC/oraInventory

      #chmod -R 775 /var/RAC/
      #chown -R grid:oinstall /var/RAC
      #chown grid:oinstall /var/RAC/11.2.0/grid
      #chown grid:oinstall /var/RAC/grid
      #chown -R oracle:oinstall /var/RAC/oracle/ODB     

      4. Create file "/etc/privgroup" and add below lines;

           dba MLOCK RTSCHED RTPRIO
           oinstall MLOCK RTSCHED RTPRIO

      5. Set Privileges to group;

           # setprivgrp -f /etc/privgroup
           # getprivgrp

      6. Create Softlink;

           # cd /usr/lib/
           # ln -s /usr/lib/libX11.3 libX11.sl
           # ln -s /usr/lib/libXIE.2 libXIE.sl
           # ln -s /usr/lib/libXext.3 libXext.sl
           # ln -s /usr/lib/libXhp11.3 libXhp11.sl
           # ln -s /usr/lib/libXi.3 libXi.sl
           # ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.3 libXm.sl
           # ln -s /usr/lib/libXp.2 libXp.sl
           # ln -s /usr/lib/libXt.3 libXt.sl
           # ln -s /usr/lib/libXtst.2 libXtst.sl

      7. Check for async I/O file;

           # ll /dev/async
           # chown oracle:dba /dev/async
           # chmod 660 /dev/async

      8. Using hosts file as defualt

           # cp /etc/nsswitch.files /etc/nsswitch.conf

      9. Set kernel parameters,

           # kctune maxfiles_lim=63488
           # kctune maxssiz=134217728
           # kctune maxssiz_64bit=1073741824
           # kctune maxuprc=3686
           # kctune msgmap=4096     - ERROR: There is no tunable named 'msgmap'.
           # kctune msgmni=4096
           # kctune msgtql=4096
           # kctune ncsize=35840
           # kctune nflocks=4096
           # kctune msgseg=32767     - ERROR: There is no tunable named 'msgseg'.
           # kctune ninode=34816
           # kctune semmni=4096
           # kctune semmns=8192
           # kctune semmnu=4096
           # kctune nfile=126976

      * vi /etc/rc.config.d/nddconf

      TRANSPORT_NAME[0]=tcp
      NDD_NAME[0]=tcp_largest_anon_port
      NDD_VALUE[0]=65500

      TRANSPORT_NAME[1]=tcp
      NDD_NAME[1]=tcp_smallest_anon_port
      NDD_VALUE[1]=9000

      TRANSPORT_NAME[2]=udp
      NDD_NAME[2]=udp_largest_anon_port

      TRANSPORT_NAME[3]=udp
      NDD_NAME[3]=udp_smallest_anon_port
      NDD_VALUE[3]=9000


      10. Configured Password less SSH for "grid" and "oracle" user.

      11. Stopped NTP service;

      #/sbin/init.d/xntpd stop
      #mv /etc/ntp.conf /etc/ntp.conf.bak

      12. vi /opt/ssh/etc/sshd_config

      LoginGraceTime 0

      13. Shared LUN's on both the hosts;

      Selected all "disk114, disk115, disk116, disk118, disk119, disk120" disks as ASM, at the time of installation.

      #dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdisk/disk114 bs=1024 count=100
      #dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdisk/disk115 bs=1024 count=100
      #dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdisk/disk116 bs=1024 count=100
      #dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdisk/disk117 bs=1024 count=100
      #dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdisk/disk118 bs=1024 count=100
      #dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdisk/disk119 bs=1024 count=100

      #chown grid:asmadmin /dev/rdisk/disk114
      #chown grid:asmadmin /dev/rdisk/disk115
      #chown grid:asmadmin /dev/rdisk/disk116
      #chown grid:asmadmin /dev/rdisk/disk117
      #chown grid:asmadmin /dev/rdisk/disk118
      #chown grid:asmadmin /dev/rdisk/disk119

      #chmod 660 /dev/rdisk/disk114
      #chmod 660 /dev/rdisk/disk115
      #chmod 660 /dev/rdisk/disk116
      #chmod 660 /dev/rdisk/disk117
      #chmod 660 /dev/rdisk/disk118
      #chmod 660 /dev/rdisk/disk119

      Is there anything else we need to do ? Or this much configuration is enough to get RAC up and running ?
      Appreciate any responce, it's urgent please help guy's.
