How to Validate Network and Name Resolution Setup for the Clusterware and RAC (Doc ID 1054902.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.1.0.2 and later
Oracle Database - Standard Edition - Version 12.1.0.2 and later
Generic UNIX
Generic Linux

Purpose

Cluster Verification Utility (aka CVU, command runcluvfy.sh or cluvfy) does very good checking on the network and name resolution setup, but it may not capture all issues. If the network and name resolution is not setup properly before installation, it is likely the installation will fail; if network or name resolution is malfunctioning, likely the clusterware and/or RAC will have issues. The goal of this note is to provide a list of things to verify regarding the network and name resolution setup for Grid Infrastructure (clusterware) and RAC.

Scope

This document is intended for Oracle Clusterware/RAC Database Administrators and Oracle Support engineers.
