    Oracle Grid 11201 installation fails on OEL5

    user10955371
      Hi Gurus,

      I'm trying to configure RAC on my personal laptop with vmware 9.
      Rac nodes OS: OEL 5
      Grid: 11201

      below is my /etc/hosts
      # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
      # that require network functionality will fail.
      127.0.0.1 rac1.potluri.com localhost.localdomain localhost
      ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
      192.168.1.101 rac1.dba.com rac1
      192.168.1.102 rac2.dba.com rac2
      #Private
      10.10.1.1 rac1-priv.dba.com rac1-priv
      10.10.1.2 rac2-priv.dba.com rac2-priv
      #Public
      192.168.1.201 rac1-vip.dba.com rac1-vip
      192.168.1.202 rac2-vip.dba.com rac2-vip
      #SCAN
      192.168.1.51 racdb-scan.dba.com racdb-scan
      #192.168.1.52 racdb-scan.dba.com racdb-scan
      #192.168.1.53 racdb-scan.dba.com racdb-scan

      Ping is fine between both nodes and even sshconnectivity is.

      I'm getting error INS40904 ORACLE_HOSTNAME doesnot resolve to a valid hostname.

      eventhough my hostname and ORACLE_HOSTNAME values point to rac1.dba.com
      [ora11g@rac1 grid]$ echo $ORACLE_HOSTNAME
      rac1.dba.com
      [ora11g@rac1 grid]$ hostname
      rac1.dba.com


      Regards
