    Installing RAC on Oracle Linux 6.3 using VMWare ESX


      I have configured a pair of Linux servers following a guide on Oracle-base.

      Both servers have their own OS disks and they have four virtual disks that are shared between the two vm's (configured as sharable in VMWare using a separate SCSI controller to the OS disks etc.

      The /u01/app/ script is failing at what appears to be the part where the daemons are added to the inittab the error i get is :

      CRS-4124: Oracle High Availability Services startup failed.
      CRS-4000: Command Start failed, or completed with errors.
      ohasd failed to start: Inappropriate ioctl for device
      ohasd failed to start at /u01/app/ line 443.

      I have found a few notes of the Internet suggesting disabling IPv6 (It's already disabled)
      Restarting syslog
      and removing some file in varoius tmp dirs (there were none)

      But i'm getting the feeling the issue is with the shared disk config.

      Can anyone point me to log files etc so i can troubleshoot this further?
