    VIP - SCAN Configuration Problems - Please help !!!!!!!

    963732
      Hi everyone

      First of all I request you guys to PLEASE DO HELP ME RESOLVE THIS ISSUE - Thanks!!

      I am trying to install Oracle Grid Infrastructure 11gR2 11.0.2.0.3 on Oracle Solaris 11.11 x86 64bit installed using Live Media on Oracle VirtualBox 4.2.6.

      After setting up the cluster nodes I ran the cluster verification utility which came out with 100% success.

      However during the execution of root.sh I got the following error:

      /u01/app/11.2.0/grid/root.sh

      I re-ran this command to see the actual errors

      I did the nslookup on my SCAN name

      nslookup sol-scan
      ----------------------------------
      Name:     sol-scan.localdomain
      Address: 192.168.56.202

      Address: 192.168.56.203
      Name:     sol-scan.localdomain
      Address: 192.168.56.201

      I ran the following commands to see if the installation process is reading my SCAN configuration properly

      srvctl stop scan_listener
      srvctl stop scan

      srvctl config scan

      -----------------------------
      SCAN name: sol-scan, Network: 1/192.168.56.0/255.255.255.0/net1
      SCAN VIP name: scan1, IP: /sol-scan/192.168.56.203
      SCAN VIP name: scan2, IP: /sol-scan/192.168.56.201
      SCAN VIP name: scan3, IP: /sol-scan/192.168.56.202

      So it is reading the SCAN information well therefore there is no problem there

      I tried to start the SCAN Listeners again and ended up with the same errors

      srvctl start scan_listener
      ------------------------------------------
      PRCR-1079 : Failed to start resource ora.LISTENER_SCAN1.lsnr

      If it helps, I am using the default automatic network management of Solaris 11.11 however I changed the IP addresses of net1 and net2 manually to meet my network
      configuration requirements for the clusterware.

      I followed every step of prerequisites for installation on solaris 11.

      After verifying everything that I could have as detailed above I am now clueless as to where things are going wrong

      Could it be the automatic network management of Solaris 11.11 that is not allowing creation of VIP SCAN IPs ???

      Once again I REQUEST YOU GUYS TO PLEASE DO HELP ME FIX THIS PROBLEM.

      Regards
      Terry.

          Hi,

          the cluster had problem with the public network registration. So there seems to be an error in the setup of your public network.
          What hostname have you configured on the public network. What does "hostname" command return.

          Check you network setup.

          Also if the cluster registered it, can you ge the output of "crsctl stat res ora.net1.network -p"

          Maybe you find something in:
          How to Validate Network and Name Resolution Setup for the Clusterware and RAC (Doc ID 1054902.1)

            Hi,

            what I just saw: it seems your "public hostname" is not on the net1 network, but on the net0 network (which is 10.X.X.X), and this is set to DHCP.

            => The public network must be on the network, where the hostname responds to. So you are bound to use the 10.x.x.x network for public net (or change that in your VBox config).
            => The error you see is very likely bount to the problem, that this network uses DHCP. There are some errors in indicating a DHCP error (with what you see).

            Regards
            Sebastian

                Hi,

                Here is a bit of information on the interfaces I am using
                Net0 is NAT Adapter for internet connectivity using DHCP
                Net1 is HostOnly Adapter for Public connectivity which you can see in my /etc/hosts

                Now I will be really grateful to you if you can please suggest me how can I fix this problem, as its taking Net0 for VIP
                which is actually DHCP based and I am excluding it in the installation.

                Thank you very much for your time.

                  Hi,

                  the problem is, that the hostname the server resolves to is on the 10.X.X.X network.
                  As a result the cluster requires the public network to be on that network. And the error you get, is because this network is on DHCP.

                  So you have the following options what you can try:
                  a.) Change the server to have the hostname resolve to the 192.X network
                  b.) Change the order of the network cards
                  c.) Remove the 10.X.X.X network for the time of installation

                  Regards
                  Sebastian

                    Hi Sebastian,

                    Thanks for getting back to me once again, I did add another NIC, connected it to the router and used it for Public IPs and everything went thru fine.

                    Thanks for your help, appreciate it !
                    Regards

                      Hi Terry,

                      I'm running the same issues. Please let me know how did you fix this problem? You said you added another NIC. What kind of NIC, bridge? How did you connect to the router? Can you show me the output of 'ipadm show-addr'?

                      Thanks,
                      Michael
