Cluvfy user equivalence check fails when banner is enabled.

  1. When the cluvfy is run we may see the following error:
    $ cluvfy comp admprv -n <node4>,<node5> -o user_equiv -sshonly -verbose

    Verifying administrative privileges

    Checking user equivalence...

    Check: User equivalence for user "<oracle>"
    Node Name Comment
    ------------------------------------ ------------------------
    <node5> passed
    <node4> failed
    Result: User equivalence check failed for user "<oracle>".

    Verification of administrative privileges was unsuccessful.
    Checks did not pass for the following node(s):

    The above command may return
         Result: User equivalence check passed for user "<oracle>".
    although a banner is enabled on the machines.
  2. Cluvfy returns unsuccessful

    $ cluvfy comp nodecon -n <node4>,<node5> -verbose

    Verifying node connectivity

    Verification of node connectivity was unsuccessful on all the nodes.

    When enabling logging you might see output similar to this one:

Verifying ssh connectivity and note the additional output that is displayed:
$ ssh <node5> date
No RSA host key is found in <DBNAME> database for host <node5>.

Eventually the output 'the date' can be seen which would indicate initially that the command is running successfully.
