you will fing totally 4 connections

Delete old eth0 and eth1 files


select eth2 and provide Ip address as per /etc/hosts file of RAC1 machine

select eth3 and provide Ip address as per /etc/hosts file of RAC1 machine

Name’s of network adapter  should be same:-

vi /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

delete extra connection.

eth2 renamed as eth0.

eth3 renamed as eth1

Shutdown  RAC2 Machine

Check hostnames and both machines cross pinging or not


As of now we have 2 Nodes with different Ip’s and Shared storage also available with asm disks.
