Are you trying to use the full GPnP functionality with DHCP assigned addresses and GNS, or are you using VIPs and virtual hostnames statically registered in your DNS?

I am not using GNS. I am not sure if the VIPs are registered in DNS. I have the VIPs only in host entry.

below is my host entry.

I haven't tried to do this without DNS. You are meant to have three VIPs for your SCAN listeners, but you can't do that with a hosts file, it is impossible. This might be your problem: the SCAN listeners can't start. I would definitely configure DNS before looking at anything else.

Incidentally, your hosts file is wrong anyway. You have this format for you VIPs:
192.168.0.41    racscan racscan.bpainc.com

but the format should be IP address followed by the FQDN followed by one or more aliaes. You have reversed the FQDN and the short name alias.

Hi John

To resolve the SCAN I have edited the nslookup as given in "http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/hunter-rac11gr2-iscsi-3-088680.html"

CLUVFY passed without any error. So I think this is not an issue. Can you please think of any thing else which could have created the problem.


Thanks
Ridhi

Hi John, I am sorry if you felt bad about my statement. But, I did not mean that you are wrong. Let me try the option you have mentioned. I will post my result.

Thanks

Hi

I think the problem is something related to below error.

Quote:
ORA-27303: additional information: requested interface eth1 interface not running set _disable_interface_checking = TRUE to disable this check for single instance cluster. Check output from ifcon


Can someone understand which eth1 interface is it trying to connect? I am able to ping the private IP of the other node which is configured on eth1.

@John, Do you think the SCAN comes into act some where here which might be creating the problem as you have mentioned.

I think that
A) you should use DNS
B) you should correct the format of your hosts file
C) your public and private networks should be different subnets

The problem was eth1 NIC was not plugged in. After plugging in eth1 NIC it worked.

@john Thanks a lot for your responses.
