      Hi,

      I am getting the INS-40912 error while installing clusterware software.

       

      PFB my host file entry on rac node1

       

      127.0.0.1   localhost.localdomain localhost

      ::1         localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

       

      # Public

      192.168.0.151    rac1.localdomain        rac1

      192.168.0.152    rac2.localdomain        rac2

       

      # Virtual

      192.168.1.151    rac1-vip.localdomain    rac1-vip

      192.168.1.152    rac2-vip.localdomain    rac2-vip

       

      # SCAN

          Hi,


          Your public IP address is correct. But your VIP should be on the same subnet like your public IP address.

          eg :

          public IP address : 192.168.0.1 ( where 1 is the ip address of node 1 which exists in the network and all nodes in this network can communicate with this IP. If you do a ping test to this IP address, it should ping)

          VIP : 192.168.0.2 (where 2 is the vip of node 1 which does not exists in the network and its used for communicating only between cluster nodes. If you do a ping test to this VIP before installing the clusterware, it should not ping)

           

          Additional info:

          Private IP address: 192.168.1.1( for private IP address, the subnet should be different , but IP address should be same like in public IP address

           

          Do the same configuration for all nodes, you will  be able to install the clusterware.

           

           

          Regards,
