    Virtual ip did not resolve to ip address

    1001564
      Hi,

      I am trying to install 2 node Oracle RAC 11gR2 on Virtualbox and receiving and error during the installation of Cluster ware. I am using latest version of virtual Box on host windows 7 and guest OS is Oracle Linux 6.3.

      Referring to the blogs:
      http://www.lab128.com/rac_installation_using_vb/article_text.html
      http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/11g/oracle-db-11gr2-rac-installation-on-oracle-linux-6-using-virtualbox.php

      I am using SCAN IPs in round-robin fashion and 2 Public and 2 Private IPs.

      here's is my /etc/hosts:
      127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
      ::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6

      #Private
      192.168.10.1 olinrac1-priv.localdomain rac1-priv
      192.168.10.2 olinrac2-priv.localdomain rac2-priv

      #Public
      192.168.56.71 Olinrac1.localdomain rac1 olinrac1
      192.168.56.72 olinrac2.localdomain rac2 olinrac2

      #Virtual
      192.168.56.81 olinrac1-vip.localdomain rac1-vip
      192.168.56.82 olinrac2-vip.localdomain rac2-vip
      #192.168.56.83 olinrac1-vip.localdomain rac1-vip
      #192.168.56.84 olinrac2-vip.localdomain rac2-vip

      #Scan
      192.168.56.91 rac-scan.localdomain rac-scan
      192.168.56.92 rac-scan.localdomain rac-scan
      192.168.56.93 rac-scan.localdomain rac-scan

      I am able to do nslookup for both the VIP name. but during the installation it fails.

      Please let me know if more information is required.

      Looking forward for suggestions.
