Symptoms

After adding second network and VIP in Grid Infrastructure, VIP for second network is not starting.

Create new network.

# /oracle/grid11.2/bin/srvctl add network -k 2 -S 10.11.99.0/255.255.255.0/eth6 -w static -v


Create new vip resource for the new network

# /oracle/grid11.2/bin/srvctl add vip -n BIEWDB1 -A BIEWDB1-dgvip/255.255.255.0 -k 2
# /oracle/grid11.2/bin/srvctl add vip -n BIEWDB2 -A BIEWDB2-dgvip/255.255.255.0 -k 2
# /oracle/grid11.2/bin/srvctl start vip -i biewdb1-dgvip
# /oracle/grid11.2/bin/srvctl start vip -i biewdb2-dgvip


Got the following status from crsctl stat res -t which prevent from creating the second listener on the second network:

ora.biewdb1-dgvip.vip
