Re: RAC installation in Solaris x86 (VMWARE)

Hi,

I was trying to install Oracle RAC in solaris x86 via VMWARE tool . I installed node1 and node 2 but when node 1 running , unable to start node2 ,
showing error " failed to open virtual machine node-2 locking of attached media failed "
Result code: VBOX_E_INVALID_OBJECT_STATE"

I am feeling that this is happening due to shared folder but how to resolve?

Appreciate if anyone can help

Thanks in advance

    If you have an error message starting with VBOX it means you are using VirtualBox and not VMWare: can you confirm ?

    When using disks for RAC shared storage with VirtualBox you need to configure them as shareable in the media manager otherwise only 1 node will be able to use the virtual disk.
    Did you run this step ?
