Well I have my gsd and ons, that keep falling into either offline or unknown state, after about 10 minutes of being up.  

I'm running, on RHEL 4 64bit U4+  

Any ideas?

I have installed half dozen RAC on RHEL 4 U4+ without any problems. What problems are you guy facing?

I'm trying to get RHEL 4 64bit and to work My gsd and ons aren't playing nice

I'd suggest you check out their CRS Bundle Patch's For 32bit, Patch 6160398, fixes about 140 bugs with CRS on top of
Or Patch 5980915 for 64bit, fixes about 30 bugs

Can't wait for <>

Good luck

Subject: SELinux and CRS


A couple of weeks ago I posted a query regarding difficulties I am encountering with a new installation such that the CRS is hanging intermittently. I am installing Oracle CRS on a two node RAC cluster running on RHEL 4. I have had a service request open for some weeks now and continually providing trace information to Oracle. In the latest update from the analyst, in addition to a couple of other comments he stated,

"I saw that we have SELinux configured, I still researching about how SELinux should work with CRS, but in the meantime I'd like to ask ct to disable it and see if we can reproduce the problem."

Has anyone had any encounters with this and might perhaps be able to shed some light on the situation. I will run a couple of other tests he requested and then do this but in the meantime I am wondering if anyone else might be able to shed some light on the situation.
