Thanks Dimitre.
I just checked these virtual boxes, looks the public interfaces are not resolved by DNS, they are only resolved by the host file. Could this be the problem? From Oracle's doc, looks public interface needs t be resolved by DNS and host file.

I think the configuration of eth1:1 is correct:

eth1:1    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:50:56:9A:00:88           inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

See 11gR2 Grid Infrastructure Redundant Interconnect and ora.cluster_interconnect.haip [ID 1210883.1]:

Grid automatically picks free link local addresses from reserved 169.254.*.* subnet for HAIP. According to RFC-3927, link local subnet 169.254.*.* should not be used for any other purpose.

This is from one of our clusters:

[xxxx ~]$ /sbin/ifconfig | grep -B1 -A1 169 bond1:1  Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:19:99:BA:AE:CE           inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:           UP BROADCAST RUNNING MASTER MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
