I have had to change interface names before but in this case the OCR is correct, is it not? Node1 (presumably where CRS was installed) and OCR are in sync. It is the node 2's IP to interface mapping which is incorrect. When both VIPs are plumbed which nodes are they running on and which interface are they running on is the first thing to check. Secondly verify that OCR is correctly reported from both nodes and verify that there are no node specific definitions in OCR.  

Perhaps I missed that part but I don't see errors in the OCR or the VIP definition (not provided in the original email).

My mistake--I should have included that you'll also have to modify the nodeapps, but I don't believe that it's wise to *only* modify the nodeapps. I think you'll also want to configure the interfaces with oifcfg. Doing both should yield a successful configuration and change.

You should do this using "srvctl modify nodeapps". See note: 276434.1 : Modifying the VIP or VIP Hostname of a 10g Oracle Clusterware Node.
Making changes with oifcfg does not work. I did it two weeks ago.

The question is, is there a way to change the assignment of these network interfaces of one server to match the other server?

Please outline the procedure in details or point me to a document on how this is done.
