Hey Guys

due the business needs, they are asking to install Oracle 10 rac on a single node after of that; they want to perform the addNode process for a second node.

What is the propuse of that ? well they want us to have the exact steps for the addNode process for more coming nodes.

at the moment i was able to install Oracle CRS, then oracle database and finally upgrade to 10.2.0.5

The problem comes when i want to add the second node

doing something like this:
./addNode.sh -silent CLUSTER_NEW_NODES={quibebdsdp6} CLUSTER_NEW_PRIVATE_NODE_NAMES={bebd6} CLUSTER_NEW_VIRTUAL_HOSTNAMES={bebd6-vip}  -ignoreSysPrereqs

i'm getting this:

No pre-requisite checks found in oraparam.ini, no system pre-requisite checks will be executed.

The addNodeActions2014-03-03_05-28-53PM.log file shown the last lines

INFO: Setting variable 'ROOTSH_STATUS' to '3'. Received the value from a code block.

I wonder if the problem is that Oracle 10g rac is installed on a single node and perhaps if i have two node it will work or no matter how many nodes i have i will get the same error

Any suggestion ?

Dio you have other files (.err .out) in the /export/oracle/app/oraInventory/logs/ directory generated at the same time as ddNodeActions2014-03-03_05-28-53PM.log ?

I have fixed part of the problem

i realized i missed to path clusterware to version 10.2.0.5, so i did, but the werid thing is that when i finish to update i'm not getting get message that run root102.sh; after some research i found that i need it to run.

Now addNode.sh work almost everything expect for when i have to run the root.sh on the new node, form some reason CSS is not starting correctly

This is the message:
Expecting the CRS daemons to be up within 600 seconds.
Failure at final check of Oracle CRS stack.
10

So right now i'm trying to figure out a workaround, i found something that is partially similar to my case.

pretty much says to instead to root.sh on the nodes, run CRS_HOME/installer/rootconfig  and modify the following values to be like this:

SILENT=false
ORA_CRS_HOME=/export/oracle/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/crs
CRS_ORACLE_OWNER=oracle
CRS_DBA_GROUP=oinstall
CRS_VNDR_CLUSTER=false
CRS_OCR_LOCATIONS=
CRS_CLUSTER_NAME=
CRS_HOST_NAME_LIST=quibebdsdp5,quibebdsdp6
CRS_NODE_NAME_LIST=quibebdsdp5,quibebdsdp6
CRS_PRIVATE_NAME_LIST=bebd5,bebd6
CRS_LANGUAGE_ID=
CRS_VOTING_DISKS=
CRS_NODELIST=quibebdsdp5,quibebdsdp6
CRS_NODEVIPS=bebd5-vip,bebd6-vip

This tip was used when a new clusterware installation was done and happened the same error as me,  when they ran root.sh; in my case is happening when i run it after addNode.sh

Any other idea ?

Finally found the problem

The real problem was that my ocr  devices, even the second node is able to see those devices too and write on them

i did a test it was set my ocrs and my votes to an ocfs2 file system and when i ran the root.sh
this time all worked

So i'm taking a look to my luns on the SAN side to see what is the problem
