I've got an odd situation in a RAC install where a node is getting skipped but 
I'm not getting any direct details of it happening and why.  Here's the setup:

4 nodes
Installing CRS
EMC disks,asmlib
RHEL 4.6

I run through the CRS installation and get all the way to running 
$CRS_HOME/ on each of the 4 nodes.  No errors, no issues at this point.  
3 of the nodes this works fine.  The 4th doesn't have ANYTHING under $CRS_HOME.

        * permissions are the same on all $CRS_HOME directories
        * I've run various cluvfy commands and they all come back without errors
        * checking /...oraInventory/logs installation log for that server I 
only find one message about a problem and then it stops: INFO: 'AttachHome' 
failed.  This is the same message I see both on the node I installed from and 
on the node that's not getting any code copied over.

Any clues what to check for finding the problem?  I'm at a loss.
