After the installation when i issue olsnodes i can see only one node from the both node could you please help me .
You were correct . I had a problem in my shared storage . When i created my first node i created the ASM DISKS (shared storage ) for the node and after that i cloned the machine for the second node , but what happened was, the second machine did not have a shared disk but the initially created shared disks ( for the first node ) were cloned to just regular disks . now i deleted all the shared storage from the first node and the cloned machine disks (which is supposed to be a shared storage ) and created a new shared storage and attached to both nodes , and re ran the installer and it worked fine :). Thanks for your help .
