Hi ,

I have a non rac database to a rac database.
everything is running fine.
the problem is that the vip is not failing over to the surviving node.
I have two node rac cluster.
whenever my node1 or node2 goes down. The vip doesnt failover to the surviving nodes instead of the surviving node also goes down.
when my both node is up.
i can see both vip address using ifconfig command.
As one of the node goes down. when i again run ifconfig command to check if configuration.
I dont see the vip address.
I try to find out the solution but in vain.
please help me where i am going wrong.

Thanks,

What kind of failover method are you using?
Post your tnsnames.ora

Hi,
Please find the tnsnames.ora entry below.

PROD =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac1-vip)(PORT = 1521))
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac2-vip)(PORT = 1521))
(LOAD_BALANCE = yes)
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SERVICE_NAME = prod)
(FAILOVER_MODE =
(TYPE = SELECT)
(METHOD = BASIC)
(RETRIES = 180)
(DELAY = 5)
)
)
)

LISTENERS_PROD =
(ADDRESS_LIST =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac1-vip)(PORT = 1521))
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac2-vip)(PORT = 1521))
)


PROD1 =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac1-vip)(PORT = 1521))


PROD2 =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = rac2-vip)(PORT = 1521))

I am able to failover to the existing instance if one of the instance goes down. but vip failover is not happening.

Thanks

Have you verified CRS log?
