Oracle CRS(10.1) installation fails

434107
    Hi,
    Following is a detailed synopsis of my unsuccessful attempt at installing Oracle Cluster Ready Services(10.1) on a two node Windows 2000 advanced server system with external SCSI hard disk.

    Following is the Configuration of both the Nodes

    1.Intel Pentium P4 2.80 Ghz CPU
    2.512 MB RAM
    3.37 GB HDD
    4.Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4
    5.Adaptec SCSI CARD 39160 ULTRA160 SCSI Controller
    6.Two -10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter (DLINK)

    Clusterware

    Oracle Cluster Ready Services 10.1.0.2

    Configuration for SCSI

    1.Model Make :SEAGATE
    2.Model Number :ST336607
    3.Firmware: 0007
    4.Model Name: Cheetah 10K.6
    5.Capacity: 36.7GB
    6.Speed: 10000 rpm

    Following are the pre-installation steps.

    1.The system setup involved 2 identical nodes with Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4 OS.
    2.Two static Public IP's for both the nodes
    3.Two private IP's which can be pinged. (1st Node Private IP 10.10.10.2 2nd Node Private IP 10.10.10.3)
    4.Entry of the private IP's can also be found in the host file.
    5.ORA_DBA win group was created on both the nodes.
    6.Both the nodes are connected to a external SCSI hard disk

    CRS installation Steps

    1.On the Cluster Configuration page the Public Node Names and corresponding Private Node Names were entered.
    2.On the Network Interface Usage Page one interface was selected as Public (192.168.144.0) and the other interface was selected as Private (10.10.10.0)
    3.On Disk formatting Options page the ‘Do not format any logical drives was selected’.
    4.Finally the Logical partitions made on the SCSI hard disk were assigned to the OCR and voting disk.
    OUI installed the Oracle folder and services on the primary node and on the remote node. But failed to start the services on both the nodes.

    Following is snippet of the OUI installing log.

    PC-P41295 service OracleCSService in improper PENDING state, err(997)

    Following errors were also observed at Operating System Level
    Event ID:11
    Description: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\SCSI\adpu160m1
    Note: adpu160m is the driver for the adaptec controllers

    Event ID:9
    Description: The device, \Device\SCSI\adpu160m1, did not respond within the time out period.

    Since the above method failed following alternate method was tired

    The CRS software was installed on just one node. This installation went about without any problems with all the services up and running.

    Using the ADDNode utility provided by CRS another node was added. But again when CRSSetup.exe tried to start the services on the remote node following error was encountered.

    PC-P41300 service OracleCSService in improper PENDING state, err(997)

    I would be grateful if some could help me with this problem.

    Thanking you in Anticipation,

        Hi,

        Did you able to figure this out. I am having the exact same problem as you are. How did you resolved your problem? Was it a problem with the controller? on the shared drive?

          <p>Hi Salil -</p>

          <p>Two things come to mind that you should check.</p>

          <ol>
          <li>Confirm that your public interface is listed <b>before</b> the private interface in the advanced settings of your network properties</li>
          <li>Confirm that you enabled automounting of external disks using diskpart</li>
          </ol>

              <p>Hi Abdul -</p>

              <p>I would confirm the same things I suggested Salil to check.</p>

              <ul>
              <li>Confirm that your public interface is listed before your private interface in the advanced setting of your network properties.</li>
              <li>Confirm that automounting of external volumes is enabled</li>
              <blockquote>
              C:\> diskpart</br>
              DISKPART> automount enable</br>
              DISKPART> exit</br>
              C:\></br>
              </blockquote>
              </ul>

              <p>Next you can attempt to manually restart the OracleCRService and OracleCSService using the sc utility as follows:</p>
              <blockquote>
              c:\> sc stop OracleCRService</br>
              c:\> sc query OracleCRService</br>
              ...once your query reports that the OracleCRService has started you can then attempt start the service</br>
              c:\> sc start OracleCRService</br>
              ..repeat the above process on the OracleCSService as well
              </blockquote>

                  you have to check firstly

                  . Domain name or HOST name of your computer changed after you instal the product if you do this you have to rename before installed.

                  I have the same trouble and I fixed with this way.


                  Good luck.

                    Even if the configuration assistants fail because of the wrong host names or IP, you can always update the $CRS_ORACLE_HOME/install/rootconfig and then run it.
