Clusterware Configuration Assistant

Fails

The installation of Oracle Clusterware Configuration Assistant fails in the

Configuration Assistants window. To resolve the issue:

1 Open the file:

%ORA_CLUSTERWARE_HOME%\cfgtoollogs\configToolFail edCommands where %ORA_CLUSTERWARE_HOME% is the Cluster Ready Service

(CRS) home directory that you created using procedures available in the

Oracle Database on Microsoft Windows Server x64 Oracle Database Setup and Installation Guide .

2 Copy and run the first three commands (with the parameters) listed in the file from the command prompt.

3 To fix the failed Virtual Private IP Configuration Assistant (VIPCA),

follow the steps in "VIPCA Fails" on page 10.

Troubleshooting

ORA_10g_R2.book Page 10 Tuesday, March 23, 2010 10:50 PM

VIPCA Fails

If the VIPCA fails during the installation of Oracle Clusterware, the following error message is displayed:

Virtual Private IP Configuration Assistant failed

To work around the issue:

1 Click Start and select Run .

2 In the Run field, type the following and click OK :

Oracle Database version that is either 10.2.0 for Oracle 10g or 11.1.0 for

Oracle 11g.

3 Follow the steps in VIPCA by selecting the appropriate public interface, and specifying the correct Virtual IP (VIP) address to be used.

4 Click Finish .

NOTE:

This generally occurs if the Public interface is configured with an IP address in the networks 10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/16, or 192.168.1.0/24. For more information, see the Metalink note ID 338924.1 at metalink.oracle.com

Due to the availability of the second NIC, the private network is still active on the node through the second NIC.

Resolution

Reboot the system on which the PowerPath installation fails.

If this issue is caused by a Spanning Tree Protocol on your switch, perform one of the following procedures:

• Turn off Spanning Tree on the switch.

• Enable Port Fast Learning

(or equivalent, which may be called something different depending on the brand of switch) on the ports of the switch to which your teamed

NICs are attached.

• Use Broadcom's LiveLink feature by right-clicking the team, choosing Enable

NIC

Teaming

Problem/Symptom Cause

When the first

NIC is still down or disabled, the second

NIC in the teaming also fails or is disabled.

When the second

NIC that failed or was disabled becomes enabled, the private network of this node remains inactive.

A private network becomes inactive only if the failed second NIC becomes enabled.

If the first failed

NIC becomes enabled, the private network becomes active.

Resolution

This failure causes the private network to go down completely on this node. The private

IP address on this node cannot be pinged.

NOTE:

Though the suggested solutions may fix the issue, a few implications or issues may arise from enabling Port Fast

Learning or turning off Spanning

Tree on your switches.
