Thanks.

I had already disabled that to test, no effect.
I use 2 bridged adapters.

Well, I m close but it still seems impossible :) is there a tool to verify the scan myself?
If not I will have to go vmware....

Hi.

So it looks like you set the TEMP environment variables, but didn't check to see it the paths actually existed. Seems unusual that you are missing these directories. They should be standard paths.

Create the missing paths and run the test again. It is possible the missing directories have an impact on later tests.

Cheers

Tim...

PS. I'm not sure that moving to VMware will make any difference, but it's up to you. If the ping tests and user equivalence work, then there really is no reason for there to be a problem.

Hi.

Just fired up my Windows RAC and ran the runclyvfy utility.

The temp directory gives no problem. The "Check: TCP connectivity of subnet" test works for both networks, but I do get the "Could not find a suitable set of interfaces for VIPs", which is a standard message if you are using internal IP addresses, rather than external.

I did all my installation as the Administrator user on the VMs. Did you do this also?

Cheers

Yes, I made a shortcut on the desktop for a command box - run as administrator
and also the grid setup I start it as administrator.

IIf I add localdomain to the test, it seems to work:

C:\software\win64_11gR2_grid\grid>runcluvfy stage -pre crsinst -n w2008-112-rac1.localdomain,w2008-112-rac2.localdomain -verbose

You wouldnt believe it, but I restarted all my nodes this morning, and it works.
He now did took the c:\temp, something which yesterday he did not seem to want to change. The result is that all tests pass!
I moved it since c:\windows\temp is system ( although Oracle did create lots of directories in there).
YES! :)


Thanks a lot for all the help Tim!
