Dear experts,
I have successfully (except few warnings) setup Oracle RAC on VMWare Server with 2 nodes using RHEL5. now as I go for creating Database with dbca, I get the following error when trying to create ASM instance:
Error when starting ASM instance on node rac2: PRKS-1009: Failed to start ASM instance "+ASM" on node 'rac2'.Dependency analysis failed becuse of :
CRS-0223:Resource 'ora.rac2.ASM.asm' has placement error.

now tell me what's the reason, was CRS not configured properly or what's the reason and how to rectify it ? please help me out.

From both the nodes, post the output/contents of ifconfig, /etc/hosts and sqlnet.ora file.
Also,
after Installing/configuring CRS, did you do a reboot?
Make sure gsd is running on both nodes.
Did you try , first using "netca" create listener for ASM and the using DBCA to create database/asm instance?

where can I find the sqlnet.ora file, the output of etc/hosts is

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

10.0.0.115 rac1.uffaq.com rac1
10.0.0.116 rac1-priv.uffaq.com rac1-priv
10.0.0.117 rac1-vip.uffaq.com rac1-vip

10.0.0.118 rac2.uffaq.com rac2
10.0.0.119 rac2-priv.uffaq.com rac2-priv
10.0.0.120 rac2-vip.uffaq.com rac2-vip

moreover everything else was okay but ASM instance could not be started on second node rac2 during database creation by DBCA.

when I ran netca on rac2 where listener could not be started, I got the following message:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: oracle/net/ca/NetCa

now tell me what could be the reason. gsd is okay, everyother daemon and service is running.

What exactly were these warnings? Did both of the root.sh scripts run successfully?

Actually for 10g+, gsd is no longer required.

no, actually I reinstalled the whole setup and there were no warnings except that listener on rac2 was not started, everthing esle was okay. I ran the netca on second node for listener and got the follwoing error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: oracle/net/ca/NetCa

and main thing is that when I ran DBCA to create the database, ASM instance could not be started on second node ie. rac2 with the message:
Error when starting ASM instance on node rac2: PRKS-1009: Failed to start ASM instance "+ASM" on node 'rac2'.Dependency analysis failed becuse of :
CRS-0223:Resource 'ora.rac2.ASM.asm' has placement error.

ASM instance has placement error on second node. I dont know what's the reason. please help me out!

I would first begin with ensuring that both environments are set appropriately.

However, without knowing exactly what steps you took to configure your environment, it's hard to say. I would recommend finding one of the many laptop Oracle RAC on VMWare articles that are available and ensure everything is followed verbatim.
