    Grid 12c:  Invalid VIP address  because the specified IP address is reachable

    1854985

      Hello all!

      I have a problem with the grid  installation, I think some of the experts can help me. He a short description of my environment:  Oracle Linux 6.5,   2 Nodes , netapp.
      The Installation of grid fails  with the Error

       

      PRCC-1108 : Invalid VIP address 10.40.25.102 because the specified IP address is reachable

      2014/02/19 11:48:35 CLSRSC-180: An error occurred while executing the command 'add nodeapps -n dbb-n15-01 -A dbb-n15-01-vip/255.255.0.0/bond1' (error code 0)
      2014/02/19 11:48:35 CLSRSC-286: Failed to add Nodeapps

       

      I have three bonds on every machine,

      bond0  -> not used  10.40.25.101
      bond1 -> public      10.40.25.102
      bond2 -> private     10.40.26.103

       

      This is what my log say after configuration the nodes  (Öffentlich means public ):

       

      - Öffentlich Schnittstelle(n) : bond1

      - Privat Schnittstelle(n) : bond2

      INFO: Default interface selected:bond1

      INFO: CRS Node Vips set to: "'dbb-n15-01-vip/255.255.0.0/bond1,dbb-n15-02-vip/255.255.0.0/bond1'"

      oracle.install.crs.interfaceList {"bond0/10.40.0.0/3","bond1/10.40.0.0/1","

                                                    bond2/10.40.26.0/2"}

      oracle_install_crs_FinalInterfaceList {""bond1"/10.40.0.0:public",""bond2"/10.40

      oracle_install_crs_NodeVips            "'dbb-n15-01-vip/255.255.0.0/bond1,dbb-n15

                                                             -02-vip/255.255.0.0/bond1'"

          Hi,

           

          This error means that the clusterware tries to add a node vip, which it can't do because this IP is already in use (=it can be reached on the network).

          You are using this IP (10.40.25.102) for your public interface?

           

          What is the output from:

           

          cat /etc/hosts

          nslookup your_node_name

          ifconfig -a

           

           

          Regards

          Thomas

              Hi Micha,

               

              you have already used the VIP 10.40.25.102 for your bond1 interface. You must not do this!

              ...

              bond1 Link encap:Ethernet  Hardware Adresse 2C:44:FD:85:05:10
                    inet Adresse:10.40.25.102  Bcast:10.40.255.255  Maske:255.255.0.0<<<<<<<<<<<<<

              ...

              The XXX.102 VIP musst remain unbound and unused, as the clusterware will put in in use after startup of the crs stack. If you want to use bond1 as your public interface, then  configure the 10.40.25.101 for it and take something else for your bond0 interface. The clusterware will add the 10.40.25.102 on the public interface.

               

              Sample from a test system, the rac_test_pub1:1 is added after start of the clusterware. X.61 is the host ip and X.63 is the VIP. x.59 and x.60 are 2 of the 3 scan adresses which get added the same way.

              rac_test_pub1: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2

                      inet XXX.YYY.160.61 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 139.29.160.255

                      ether 2:8:20:10:3:22

              rac_test_pub1:1: flags=1040843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,DEPRECATED,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2

                      inet XXX.YYY.160.63 netmask ffffff00 broadcast XXX.YYY.160.255

              rac_test_pub1:3: flags=1040843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,DEPRECATED,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2

                      inet XXX.YYY.160.59 netmask ffffff00 broadcast XXX.YYY.160.255

              rac_test_pub1:4: flags=1040843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,DEPRECATED,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2

                      inet XXX.YYY.160.60 netmask ffffff00 broadcast XXX.YYY.160.255

              rac_test_priv1: flags=201000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,CoS> mtu 1500 index 3

                      ether 2:8:20:fc:ac:de
