If the following error is found:

Checking user equivalence...
Check: User equivalence for user "oracle"
  Node Name                             Comment

  node1                                failed
Result: User equivalence check failed for user "oracle".

And using the steps for troubleshooting the user equivalence check in section 4.1.1 “Troubleshooting Oracle Clusterware Setup” did not result in success, then SSH may not have been properly set up.
