IBM p570 - power 6 processors
AIX 6.1 64 bit
Oracle RAC

We are trying to install the clusterware. Initially, the cluster nodes wouldnt show up in the details screen. Using the rootpre.sh for 'solved' that issue. The nodes were available and we were able to ediit the private/public interface details etc.

root.sh complains of the en4 not being a valid public interface. That is a known issue, and as recommended we manually ran vipca. But vipca throws an error while trying to start gsd. Throws an

CRS-0215 (could not start resource ora.<host>.gsd on the local node.

This fails for both nodes. If we choose to ignore the error, the remaining resources start up successfully. The installation completes with all resources except gsd showing online. A manual gsdctl start also fails.

Any suggestions from the group members ?? Has anyone face this issue before ??
