10g RAC - Adding a new node that has different interface names
Date: Thu, 7 Aug 2008 12:08:24 -0400
We are attempting to add a 3rd node to an existing 10.2.0.4 cluster on Solaris 10.
The new node is a Sun v445 the other nodes are v440's. The interface names on the the existing nodes are bge0 - beg3, while on the new node they are ce0 - ce3. In attempting to add that 3rd node, I hit the following error:
/u01/crs/oracle/product/10.2.0/crs_1/bin/srvctl add nodeapps -n
oracnp05 -A oracnp05-vip/255.255.255.0/bge0|bge1 -o
PRKO-2109 : Invalid address string: oracnp05-vip/255.255.255.0/bge0|bge1
Am I correct in thinking that OUI is expecting identical interface names across all nodes of the cluster? Is is mandatory for interface names to be identical across all nodes of a cluster?
