I have two nodes RAC01 & RAC02 RAC 11g r2 running on solaris 10. we are using /etc/hosts file and not DNS server for name resolution. the /etc/hosts file is as below.
192.168.56.200 RAC01 loghost
192.168.56.210 RAC02 loghost
now as per the requirement we would like to add another node to our cluster. Can anyone please let me know how to add the third node ( RAC03) without DNS server using /etc/hosts file
First of all, you will have to update the /etc/hosts file of the existing nodes with the Public IP, Private IP, VIP of the new node and the same will be updated to the /etc/hosts file of the new node.
After that follow the Clusterware Admin guide to add the node: Adding and Deleting Cluster Nodes
