Hi,

I am installing RAC using vmware server with Windows7 as Host Operating Sytem and Linux RHEL 5 as Guest Operating Systems

All the clusterware installation went well till vipca after which I got following error at the last step of clusterware installation and I am stuckup now

OCR integrity results are inconsistent amongst the nodes.
        OCR integrity found invalid for nodes: rac1
        OCR integrity found valid for nodes: rac2


to my surprise, precheck using 'runcluvfy' did not produce errors

also i can see the shared disks from both the nodes
(which i created using 'datastore')

Following is my vmx file with disk configuration details

.encoding = "windows-1252"

scsi1:5.deviceType = "disk"
scsi1:5.redo = ""
scsi1.pciSlotNumber = "37"


The vmx file for rac2 differs only in
1)displayname
2)ethernet0.generatedAddress
ethernet1.generatedAddress
3)uuid.location
uuid.bios
4)vmci0.id

Is there any workaround for this error?

Thanks and Regards,
Pratap

Hi,

after googling I found 2 notes on this toic which say ocr needs to be owned by root

In my case I have configured following ownership and permissions

chown oracle:oinstall /dev/raw/raw1
chown oracle:oinstall /dev/raw/raw2
chown oracle:oinstall /dev/raw/raw3
chown oracle:oinstall /dev/raw/raw4
chown oracle:oinstall /dev/raw/raw5
chmod 640 /dev/raw/raw1
chmod 640 /dev/raw/raw2
chmod 640 /dev/raw/raw3
chmod 640 /dev/raw/raw4
chmod 640 /dev/raw/raw5


Also since I did not have /etc/sysconfig/rawdevices file I have created /etc/udev/rules.d/63-oracle-raw.rules as described in
http://arjudba.blogspot.com/2008/08/on-rhl5-rawdevices-unrecognized-service.html

Will it be causing the issue?

If yes, how come the error was produced only for node2?

Please let me know any workaround I am stuckup

Also please help me knowing where can I start with again, since I have left clusterware installation running and completed vipca and script execution by root. Do I need to cleanup before I start re-execution or I can run it again as it is?

Thanks and Regards,
Pratap

Post the details.

I believe you already executed $CRS_HOME/root.sh script execute from both nodes.

Could you please post output the above script.

>>scsi1.sharedBus = "none"

Your using WRONG VM Cluster values. It's should be

Scsi1.sharedBus = "VIRTUAL"

Hi gentlebabu,

Thanks for your reply

Unfortunately I have already started the setup again from scratch

However this time (since I am using RHEL5) I will mention /dev/sdb1 for ocr and /dev/sdc1 for voting disk etc. rather tha /dev/raw/raw1 and /dev/raw/raw2

Thanks for letting me know about the setting
Scsi1.sharedBus = "VIRTUAL"

I will keep this in mind during current installation

Thanks and Regards,
Pratap
