Hi Krish, I have checked from /etc/ssh/ssh_config and /etc/ssh/ssh_config. X11 forwarding is set to no. Thanks for reply Regards, Murtuja Khokhar Oracle Database Administrator Indorion Networks Pvt.

I have had problems with that before where internode connectivity is affected (I believe that there is a ML note on that). I would suspect that the second message is as a consequence of the first, but regardless, resolving the first error would verify that. -Krish ________________________________ From: oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Murtuja Khokhar Sent: Sunday, April 27, 2008 10:34 PM To: oracle-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Error while adding new node Hi, I have two node RAC setup. I am using Oracle 10g Standard Edition (10.2.0.3.0) on Solaris 10 (sparc 64bit). I am testing node crash scenario so I have deleted one node. I have followed steps from ML#269320.1.After deleting node successfully I have tried to add node. For adding node I have followed ML#270512.1 When I started to add new node, I was able to add clusterware to new node. VIPCA was successful. but when I tried to add Oracle Software on new node ,I am getting error message like "The selected remote nodes are not accessible" and "The virtual host name for node is already in use" For troubleshoot this error : I have checked user equivalence (SSH) is OK and All nodes can ping each other. vip is configured properly and both are on eri0:1 and I can ping both vip from each node. Can you please suggest me fix for this error?
