    OLSNODES DISPLAYS ONLY ONE NODE

    765528
      Hello Everybody ,

      I tried installing oracle 11g R2 Rac in my local machine using virtual box . I followed this document http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/11g/oracle-db-11gr2-rac-installation-on-oel5-using-virtualbox.php.

      DETAILS:

      HOST: UBUNTU 12.04

      GUEST OS : OEL 5.8 64bit

      Problem:
      *=======*

      While running root.sh in the second node i got the below error but it ended succesfully .

      ERROR MESSAGE:
      *============*

      PRCR-1079 : Failed to start resource ora.scan1.vip
      CRS-5005: IP Address: 192.168.1.225 is already in use in the network

      After the installation when i issue olsnodes i can see only one node from the both node could you please help me .

      FYI..

      FROM NODE 2 :

      [oracle@ol5-112-rac3 ~]$ olsnodes
      ol5-112-rac3
      [oracle@ol5-112-rac3 ~]$

      FROM NODE 1 :

      [oracle@ol5-112-rac1 ~]$ olsnodes
      ol5-112-rac1
      [oracle@ol5-112-rac1 ~]$

          Hi,

          this pretty much looks like as you configured 2 independent clusters.
          Can you post an "crsctl stat res" of both nodes?

          It also might be that you have a problem with your network setup, or the shared storage setup.
          Recheck if you disks are really shared....

          Regards

            Hi,

            Are you using DNS or SCAN entry in /etc/hosts file.
            If using DNS check /etc/resolve.conf
            Post your hosts file.

              Hello Sebastian,

              You were correct . I had a problem in my shared storage . When i created my first node i created the ASM DISKS (shared storage ) for the node and after that i cloned the machine for the second node , but what happened was, the second machine did not have a shared disk but the initially created shared disks ( for the first node ) were cloned to just regular disks . now i deleted all the shared storage from the first node and the cloned machine disks (which is supposed to be a shared storage ) and created a new shared storage and attached to both nodes , and re ran the installer and it worked fine :). Thanks for your help .



              Thanks and Regards
