All, I'm trying to configure a 2 node RAC cluster on RH Enterprise Linux. I'm trying to get SSH where it will sign in without a password. I've gotten node1 to connect to node2 without a password, no problem. I can't seem to get node2 to connect to node 1 without using a password.
If you haven't already, doublecheck the permissions on ~/oracle/.ssh, ~oracle, and all of the parent directories. OpenSSH, which is what I assume you're using, can be quite picky about group/world-writeable directores... it's possible to disable this check by setting "StrictModes no" in sshd_config, although that wouldn't be my recommended approach. Another possibility (albeit unlikely) would be that the sysadmin has explicitly disabled public-key authentication, either globally or for specific users/groups. An examination of sshd_config should reveal this, assuming that they haven't also made the file unreadable (as my own sysadmins are rather fond of doing). -- "I'm too sexy for my code." - Awk Sed Fred.
