- Upgrading CRS 10g or 11gR1 to GRID 11gR2
- While running the script 'rootupgrade.sh' on the last node it reports the following error while attempting to start the nodeapps:
The CRS was successfully upgraded.
Successfully upgraded the Oracle Clusterware.
Oracle Clusterware operating version was successfully set to 18.104.22.168.0
/u01/app/11.2.0/grid/bin/srvctl start nodeapps -n racnode1 ... failed
/u01/app/11.2.0/grid/bin/srvctl start nodeapps -n racnode2 ... failed
- the VIP resources for all nodes show status OFFLINE
- when checking the public interfaces, it still shows the VIPs plumbed causing the start of the VIP resources to fail
- after manually removing (unplumbing) the VIPs from the public interfaces and starting the VIP resources, the VIPs potentially get plumbed to the incorrect interface
