Firstly apologies if you've seen this before. This is a copy of a message sent to the Tru64 manager's mailing list, to which I've had minimal feedback.
Has anybody successfully installed Oracle 10g RAC Database on a Tru64 Cluster (v5.1Bpk4) where the nodes are using NetRAIN for their LAN connection ? We've been having problems installing 10g for some time now, and Oracle believe that NetRAIN may be the issue.
As we've currently got a production 9i database on the box that we're attempting to upgrade, we can't easily remove NetRAIN to see if it is causing the issue, and Oracle don't seem to be able to find a system anywhere in the world to test with. (Which makes we wonder how they actually compiled the software, but thats a different issue !)
In detail, what happens is that when root.sh is run after the Cluster Ready Services (CRS) install, none of the CRS daemons start up.
Oracle have had all of the trace and output logs and can't see an obvious problem, but they have a note from a previous employee stating that he couldn't get cluster ready services installed with NetRAIN present. They won't give us a definite yes or no as to whether this note is true, but want us to remove NetRAIN and try without, which we're reluctant to do as the box is in production with the 9i RAC.
Has anyone done this successfully ?

Which event manager and error logs do you mean specifically ?
There's nothing relevant in /var/adm/messages that I can see...
Agreed NetRAIN should have absolutely no effect on the install, its just that Oracle think it might be the cause of our problems. As we're not in a position to remove NetRAIN, I was just wondering whether anybody out there had done it, or indeed whether anybody could test it...

For the cluster interconnect one might expect some dependency. I remember something like this some time ago when choosing between RDG and UDP for the RAC traffic. However here the interface name would now be ics0 (in the latest version of TruCluster Server) and the NetRAIN name of the interface would be at a "lower level".
Can you be a bit more specific on the actual error?

Unfortunately I can't be more specific on the error, as we're getting nothing logged (that we're aware of) that tells us what's happening. Oracle support have had us look in all the relevant places and have found nothing...

Just installed 10g for the first time, (Tru64 Pk4, Netrain, etc.) can't find anything wrong with the install.
