    PRVF-7617 running cluvfy on AIX lpar using aliases

    926398
      I am preparing to install grid infrastructure 11.2.0.3 on AIX 6.2 USING AIX LPARS. I am getting the following errors in the output when runningn the following command...
      ./runcluvfy.sh stage -pre crsinst -n oradbprd016,oradbprd022 -fixup -verbose
      These are the errors...
      Check: TCP connectivity of subnet "192.168.99.0"
      Source Destination Connected?

      ERROR:

      The physical hostnames of the servers are c-oradb003av and c-oradb005av In which they are aliases as follows in the /etc/hosts files.
      # c-oradb003av
      192.168.99.32 c-oradb003av.corppvt.com c-oradb003av
      192.168.99.32 oradbprd016.corppvt.com oradbprd016
      192.168.99.243 oradbvip016.corppvt.com oradbvip016

      192.168.103.18 oradbrep016.corppvt.com oradbrep016
      # c-oradb005av
      192.168.99.235 c-oradb005av.corppvt.com c-oradb005av
      192.168.99.235 oradbprd022.corppvt.com oradbprd022
      192.168.99.245 oradbvip022.corppvt.com oradbvip022
      192.168.100.19 oradbpri022.corppvt.com oradbpri022
      192.168.103.19 oradbrep022.corppvt.com oradbrep022

      Just strange to me that it would say it is failing between the physical hostname and the alias which are using the same ip address? Not sure why this is the case? Should I be concerned about these errors before proceeding? All other checks have passed.

      Thanks.
