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:
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
192.168.10.1 olinrac1-priv.localdomain rac1-priv
192.168.10.2 olinrac2-priv.localdomain rac2-priv
192.168.56.71 Olinrac1.localdomain rac1 olinrac1
192.168.56.72 olinrac2.localdomain rac2 olinrac2
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
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.
After completing all the pre-requisites , when I execute the runInstaller .. it fails at the step "cluster node information" with an error saying "Virtual ip did not resolve to ip address".
I checked with nslookup which works fine. Ping to public and Private names works fine as well.
