 While upgrading Oracle Clusterware from 10gR2 to 11gR2,runInstaller displays 4 nodes where as the cluster is of 2 nodes only.


oracle@rachost1:/u01/db/crs/10.2.0/bin $olsnodes

runInstaller also gives error that ssh is not configured between all nodes. The ASM upgrade checkbox gets hidden.

The opatch lsinventory shows 4 nodes where as cluster is actually having 2 nodes.
