Oracle Certified Master

Node names are missing from ./runInstaller output

Posted by Kamran Agayev A. on January 4th, 2015

While installing Oracle Database after Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation, I was supposed to get the list of all nodes where I need to install Oracle Software (11gR2 – But instead, I got nothing


















I checked the status of the clusterware, it was up and running on both nodes:

[oracle@node1 bin]$ ./olsnodes
[oracle@node1 bin]$ ./crsctl check crs
CRS-4638: Oracle High Availability Services is online
CRS-4537: Cluster Ready Services is online
CRS-4529: Cluster Synchronization Services is online
CRS-4533: Event Manager is online


Then I checked the inventor.xml file and found out that the CRS=true is missing.

[oracle@node1 bin]$ cat /etc/oraInst.loc | grep inventory_loc

[oracle@node1 bin] cd /u01/app/oraInventory/ContentsXML/

[oracle@node1 bin] more inventory.xml

<output trimmed ————— >

<HOME NAME=”Ora11g_gridinfrahome1″ LOC=”/u01/app/product/” TYPE=”O” IDX=”1″>

</output trimmed ————->

After running the following command, I updated the inventory.xml file and node list appeared

[oracle@node1 ~]$ cd /u01/app/product/
[oracle@node1 bin]$ ./runInstaller -updateNodeList ORACLE_HOME=”/u01/app/product/” CRS=true
Starting Oracle Universal Installer…

Checking swap space: must be greater than 500 MB. Actual 3919 MB Passed
The inventory pointer is located at /etc/oraInst.loc
The inventory is located at /u01/app/oraInventory
‘UpdateNodeList’ was successful.


[oracle@node1 bin] more inventory.xml

<HOME NAME=”Ora11g_gridinfrahome1″ LOC=”/u01/app/product/” TYPE=”O” IDX=”1″ CRS=”true”>
