Has anyone done an upgrade of RAC to RAC on Linux-x86-64?

I have pre-staged the binaries, and now I'm attempting to run DBUA. (Running dbua from ORACLE_HOME.)

I'm trying to do this for the first time on RAC (dev and test are single instance, they were no problem), and, I'm getting the following problem:

When I start DBUA, I get a list (from /etc/oratab) of all the local instance names, as well as the (dummy?) database names listed there.

So, when I select the local instance name, in my case, 'mstmfgpe1', I get the following error:

First I get the "Getting database information..." dialog, and then quickly followed by:

'The database "mstmfgpe1" does not has the cluster configuration and also not listed in the registry of remote cluster nodes. Do you want the Database Upgrade Assistant to upgrade it as a single instance database?

Click Yes to upgrade it as a single instance database. Click No to upgrade it as a cluster database.'

So, question is, *why* does it not recognize this instance as part of a cluster database? Has anyone else done> on RAC? Successfully? Ever seen this problem?

Thanks in advance,
