I have been trying to install Oracle Infrastructure Grid on virtual environment for a 15 days and I still have no succeed. I googled the web a lot and try different suggestion like increasing storage, RAM and CPU but couldn't resolve my problem. This place is my final hope to overcome this stupid issue.
Here is my situation: I created two virtual machine using HYPER-V software with 3 Gigabyte Ram and 2 core CPU. They have one network card and i assigned two IPs for each for public and private IP. The public IP is in our local network range(192.168.100.) and for private I choose IP range like 192.168.1. They can ping each other by IP and after replacing host file(in system32\driver\etc folder- that public, private and virtual IP is defined) they can ping themselves through public and private name(e.g. rac1, rac1-priv).
For virtual IPs, I assigned an unused IP in public range. The installation proceeded(file is copied in second VM) till Grid configuration that an error would raise that the installation failed. I probed the log file and found nothing.
Bringing the VMs into domain didn't have any better result. I should also say that the user on both VMs are the same(Administrator).
Some tips advised me to install the software in silent mode but no proceed. In this mode the installation is finished with some warning about some configuration parameter does not meet.
Finally according to some suggestion about having problem with virtual environment, I had to install the software on two physical PCs but got the same error.
Infrastructure Grid version: 22.214.171.124
OS: Windows Server 2008 R2
Thank you in advance
I used Vmware to simulate the RAC environment. So before installing the grid infrastruction, make sure you have same oracle user account on both nodes.
if its oracle 11g , there is no need to mention about private network in etc hosts file. just mentioning public and public-vip and scan ip is enough. make sure you have established the ssh between two nodes. If is window it will be more easy when compared to linux/unix box. if its two physical windows boxes, you need two network cards on each server. you need to have a shared storage to configure the ASM . so make sure thats also available.
Thanks for your reply. Do you think there is something wrong about HYPER-V? Did you use Grid 126.96.36.199? Did you install on Windows 2008 R2? Because I searched the web and many people have problem on Windows.
In my case there were just one network card, but I assigned two IP for each. About ssh you mentioned, I didn't read anything about this in documents and other Install tutorials.
One more question about VIP. What are these IPs? Do I have to refer them to an active PC? I just use some unused IP for VIP.
Please verify the cluster pre installation prerequisite for windows server ,
Follow the steps :-
For example, to perform a pre-installation check for an Oracle Database with Oracle RAC installation on a two-node cluster with nodes node1 and node2, enter the following command:
cluvfy.bat stage -pre dbinst -n node1,node2 -verbose
