Use NAT / Bridge method & then try to change ip ( Make sure before change IP change hostname as well )

For VMWARE questions, you are probably better served posting in a VMWARE forum, IMHO. Know also that Oracle RAC running on VMWARE is not something that Oracle supports in any way - that is pretty clearly spelled out in the Oracle certification matrix Wink. Oracle RAC running on Oracle VM is supported Wink. (no - I don't work for Oracle . . . ). The error message you are getting is fairly obviously caused by either a network configuration issue in VMWARE or you have another system on your network with the same IP. Good luck!

You can use bridged ethernet card but it is better to use cisco instead try using ifupeth0 if still not up then buy new card

lordlabakardas ,

I doubt that OP has been waiting 2+ years for your words of wisdom!
