Oracle Grid 11201 installation fails on OEL5

Hi Gurus,

I'm trying to configure RAC on my personal laptop with vmware 9.
Rac nodes OS: OEL 5
Grid: 11201

below is my /etc/hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail. localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6 rac1 rac2
#Private rac1-priv rac2-priv
#Public rac1-vip rac2-vip
#SCAN racdb-scan
# racdb-scan
# racdb-scan

Ping is fine between both nodes and even sshconnectivity is.

I'm getting error INS40904 ORACLE_HOSTNAME doesnot resolve to a valid hostname.

eventhough my hostname and ORACLE_HOSTNAME values point to
[ora11g@rac1 grid]$ echo $ORACLE_HOSTNAME
[ora11g@rac1 grid]$ hostname
