Issues install RAC 12c on Virtualbox

I am trying to get RAC 12c on OEL6 running on my Windows 7 PC following various notes but mainly the note from ORACLE-BASE which has always been a very helpful site.



1. This is the content of my /etc/hosts file:   localhost.localdomain localhost

# Public   oel-rac1.localdomain        oel-rac1   oel-rac2.localdomain        oel-rac2

# Private   oel-rac1-priv.localdomain   oel-rac1-priv   oel-rac2-priv.localdomain   oel-rac2-priv

# Virtual   oel-rac1-vip.localdomain    oel-rac1-vip   oel-rac2-vip.localdomain    oel-rac2-vip

# SCAN   oel-scan.localdomain oel-scan   oel-scan.localdomain oel-scan   oel-scan.localdomain oel-scan


2. The /etc/resolv.conf file's content:

# Generated by NetworkManager

search localdomain




So far I have gone through notes and configured dns, bind and dnsmasq etc

When I do nslookup on node 1 it works resolving as expected


But when I do it on NODE2, it doesn't work until I edit its /etc/resolv.conf file's to:

# Generated by NetworkManager

search localdomain



Should I need to change this or it should be using the one on NODE1?


Also I cannot ping or ssh out of the nodes but I can ping and ssh within each node.... and I have turned-off firewall as well but no luck


I will greatly appreciate your input in solving these issues
