ASM home clone issues

Hello All,
  We have a 3 node cluster (serv-db03, serv-db04, serv-db05) and in the
process of adding two more nodes (serv-db01, serv-db02).
  Its a windows server 2003 64 env on 10 rel 2.
  We have added the cluster services. No problems.
  When we try to clone the ASM home, we get an error saying virtual hostname
serv-db01-vip for node is already in use and the installation stops.
  If we skip the asm home cloning part and go directly to the oracle home
cloning, it works fine.
  The command we are invoking is from asm/oui/bin on one of the existing
nodes.
  setup.exe -addNode ORACLE_HOME=D:\oracle\product\10.2.0\asm -noWelcome

  For the database clone, we go to db_1/oui/bin and run the same command as
above with ORACLE_HOME pointing to db_1

  Any thoughts on why the ASM clone part fails with the error while the db
clone works ok ?.

 I have attached the error log..
