Hi all,

RAC installation on vmware is failing with following errors.
I followed below link for installation.

http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/10g/OracleDB10gR2RACInstallationOnCentos4UsingVMware.php

Please help me to resolve the issue. Found the following errors:

[root@rac2 ~]# cd /crs/oracle/bin/
[root@rac2 bin]# ./vipca

typically IP#s assigned to hostname do not have "0" in rightmost byte.

both nodes must pass cluvfy

Oracle RDBMS is not certified on Centos

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.. you mean to say IP number should have 0 at the end (eg. 192.168.3.100, 192.168.3.200..)?

Here I used RHEL AS4 for node OS and tried to installed oracle clusterware of version 10.2.0.1.

Thanks,
Suresh

I have created vip's from public ip. Still Cluvfy was giving error while validating vip's on both the nodes. Dont know exactly where I did wrong.

Thanks,
Suresh

Neither do we know.
It could be error of omission.
It could be error of commission.

Clusterware 10g (and the 10g release of cluvfy) will always give an error if your public IP addresses are 192.168.x.x addresses, because those addresses are not routable. If you read the RFC describing VIPs, you will see that they are supposed to be routable. This is an error that does not in fact matter, and 11g no longer reports it.
However, unless you tell us what the "error" was, we won't know if it is a real error, or merely the issue I have described.

Hi John,

I deinstalled the cluster software completely and installed again by changing ip addresses as follows:

public --> 100.100.100.10 (node1)/100.100.100.20 (node2)
private -->200.200.200.50 (node1)/200.200.200.60 (node2)
vip --> 100.100.100.30 (node1)/100.100.100.40 (node2)

Got the following error:

Waiting for the Oracle CRSD and EVMD to start
Waiting for the Oracle CRSD and EVMD to start
Waiting for the Oracle CRSD and EVMD to start

Timed out waiting for the CRS stack to start.

Did you run
cluvfy stage -post hwos
cluvfy stage -pre crsinst
to see if you meet the prereqs?
