Dear experts here:

I have a project requires me to add a brand new node to an Oracle RAC cluster. After nearly a month's preparation, today I  tried to run the addNode.sh under /u1/oracle/11.2.0/gridhome/bin.

When I tried to run the addnode script, but got the following error:

The file oraparam.ini could not be found at /u1/oracle/11.2.0/gridhome/oui/bin/oraparam.ini
Using paramFile: /u1/oracle/11.2.0/gridhome/oui/oraparam.ini


Checking swap space: must be greater than 500 MB. Actual 13434 MB Passed
Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors Failed <<<<
>>> Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/bin/xdpyinfo. Check if the DISPLAY variable is set.

Some requirement checks failed. You must fulfill these requirements before

continuing with the installation,Continue? (y/n) [n]
User Selected: No

Exiting Oracle Universal Installer, log for this session can be found at /u1/oracle/oraInventory/logs/installActions2013-06-18_01-08-08PM.log


-----------------------------------------------

Then,  I tired to run the "xhost +" command as suggested by Oracle article, I got the following error. Please help.

[root@elysium bin]# xhost +
xhost: unable to open display ""

What is your DISPLAY environment variable set to?

Does xclock work?

I'm not a RAC person but there appears to be a Silent option that doesn't require an XWindows display:

I got it resolved. In fact, three steps.
1. fist SSH -Y to the server.
2. export DISPLAY=10.10.4.34:0.0
3. run xclock to verify it's working.



How to initiate X server from MobaXterm:


[jyu.LOKI] ¿ ssh -Y grid@tartarus
