When using RAC database the following sequence of error dialogs is shown when starting Forms function from the Homepage.

The error happens intermittently. Sometimes Forms is started without any problems on the first attempt. When the error is raised trying a second or third time makes Forms is then started as expected.

Running the 'date' command (at the same moment) on all RAC nodes show a different time stamp. The example below shows a 10 minute difference between the 2 RAC nodes:

# date
Tue Nov 25 14:13:29 GMT 2008

# date
Tue Nov 25 14:23:45 GMT 2008
