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.
127.0.0.1 rac1.potluri.com localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
192.168.1.101 rac1.dba.com rac1
192.168.1.102 rac2.dba.com rac2
#Private
10.10.1.1 rac1-priv.dba.com rac1-priv
10.10.1.2 rac2-priv.dba.com rac2-priv
#Public
192.168.1.201 rac1-vip.dba.com rac1-vip
192.168.1.202 rac2-vip.dba.com rac2-vip
#SCAN
192.168.1.51 racdb-scan.dba.com racdb-scan
#192.168.1.52 racdb-scan.dba.com racdb-scan
#192.168.1.53 racdb-scan.dba.com 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 rac1.dba.com
[ora11g@rac1 grid]$ echo $ORACLE_HOSTNAME
rac1.dba.com
[ora11g@rac1 grid]$ hostname
rac1.dba.com

Kumar
