(Doc ID 1570566.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 01, 2013

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.4 and later
Linux x86
Linux x86-64


After customer upgraded to Oracle Linux 6.4 , cluster verification utility (cluvfy) of DB fails as nslookup returns 1 instead of 0 , as expected in Oracle Linux 5.x versions.

In Oracle Linux 5.x, even nslookup failed with none-existing host, returns 0.


DB  installation will not proceed after upgrading the OS to Oracle Linux 6.4.
