This important setting is mentioned in the RAC installation guide for Linux. Something the guy who installed our cluster seems to have overlooked or deemed unuseful... (It's not a prereq but rather a suggestion in the guide.)

It's also surprising that, in addition to the RAC install guide, hugetbl is mentioned in the Linux database admin guide only (and not in the database install guide.)

Thanks again Joel for pointed that out.
