I am following the following post - on * two * Virtual Box Linux VMs on one laptop (3GB RAM allocated per each Linux 64-bit VM and 2GB left over for the host Windows7 64-bit OS, total laptop RAM 8GB).http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/11g ... ualbox.php
I am using Oracle Linux 6.2 (not OL 6.1 as in the article) with UEK kernel and using Oracle 126.96.36.199 64-bit.
I was able to install the 11g R2 Grid/ASM without problems and the passwordless SSH was done from the Oracle Installer (click Setup and click Test) and it worked.
Now I am installing the 11g R2 RAC Database software and when I click Setup the passwordless SSH it returns with Success (after ~20-30 seconds) and then when I click Test and it always fails with INS-06006 error, Passwordless SSH Connectivity Failed and won't allow me to proceed further. Why does the Setup report success? Why did the Grid installation work ok using same SSH and RAC fails now?
Any clues? Shall I set it up SSH manually? Why is SSH setup is so unstable? The Grid/ASM installation worked fine and the RAC software fails on the same step on the same two VMs?
Any pointers on how to set-up SSH manually so that it always works?
Thanks in advance
