Oracle 11gR2 grid installation hung at 65% of completion

Postby malru » Thu Jul 04, 2013 3:49 pm

Hi Tim,

I tried to install 11gR2 grid infrastructure for 2 nodes RAC using VMWare
as per the instructions provided in the below link.

http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/11g ... rver-2.php

Until 65% installation went fine without any issues but
after reaching this step "updating '/u01/app/11.2.0/grid/install/cluster.ini",
it starts to hung. In the installation log file, I found these details.

filename = /tmp/.GsdDisplayed
INFO: Query Returned: false

Please let me know how to fix this issues, so that installation can be completed successfully.

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

Sorry. No idea.

Check:

- You have met all prerequisites, including DNS configuration if using 11.2.0.2 or higher.
- You have enough memory on the VMs. You've seen my recommendations in the article. Doing this on a PC or laptop with hardly any memory isn't going to cut it.
- If I were you I would ditch the incredibly old VMware Server 2 and switch to Oracle VirtualBox, which is free and up to date. All my recent installation guides use that now.

Cheers
