Symptoms

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

Create new network.

#$GRID_HOME/bin/srvctl add network -k 2 -S 10.XX.XX.0/255.255.255.0/eth6 -w static -v


Create new vip resource for the new network

# $GRID_HOME/bin/srvctl add vip -n <nodename1> -A <nodename1>-dgvip/255.255.255.0 -k 2
# $GRID_HOME/bin/srvctl add vip -n <nodename2> -A <nodename2>-dgvip/255.255.255.0 -k 2
#$GRID_HOME/bin/srvctl start vip -i <nodename1>-dgvip
# $GRID_HOME/bin/srvctl start vip -i <nodename2>-dgvip


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

ora.<nodename1>-dgvip.vip
    1        ONLINE  INTERMEDIATE <nodename1>                  FAILED OVER                                
ora.<nodename2>-dgvip.vip
    1        ONLINE  INTERMEDIATE <nodename2>                  FAILED OVER
