CRS does not start GIPC error: [29] msg [gipcretConnectionRefused]

What to do first ?

  • Check your disk space using:  #  df
  • Check whether your are a firewall: # service iptables status ( <— this command is very important )
  • Use Nslookup and ping to verify you Cluster Interconnect

Scenario 1: Wrong IP Address


Errors:
   GIPC repot error [29] msg [gipcretConnectionRefused]
   CHM report clsu_get_private_ip failed

--> Again we don't get an OS error but we are looping running the same ioctl() command
    Seems the kernel is not happy with the inforamtion we get from ioctl() call  and tries to reread the information every 5 seconds 


Check GPnP profile
[root@grac41 Desktop]#  gpnptool get > profile.xml 
Edit  profile.xml and extract the adapter usage 
<gpnp:Network-Profile><gpnp:HostNetwork id="gen" HostName="*">
   <gpnp:Network id="net1" IP="192.168.1.0" Adapter="eth1" Use="public"/>
   <gpnp:Network id="net2" IP="192.168.2.0" Adapter="eth2" Use="cluster_interconnect"/>
Verify with ifconfig
[root@grac41 Desktop]# ifconfig | egrep 'HWaddr|inet addr'
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 08:00:27:89:E9:A2  
          inet addr:192.168.2.101  Bcast:192.168.2.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
eth2      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 08:00:27:6B:E2:BD  
          inet addr:192.168.1.101  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
--> eth1 is using  192.168.2.101 but according GPnP Profile it should use 192.168.1.101
    eth2 is using  192.168.1.101 but according GPnP Profile it should use 192.168.2.101

Problem found :
During manuall editing  ifcfg-eth1 and ifcfg-eth2  HWADR entry was wrongly filled ( /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts )

Reconfiguring/restart network and CRS
[root@grac41 network-scripts]# cat  ifcfg-eth2
HWADDR=08:00:27:89:E9:A2
IPADDR=192.168.2.101
NAME=eth2
[root@grac41 network-scripts]# cat  ifcfg-eth1 
IPADDR=192.168.1.101
NAME=eth1
HWADDR=08:00:27:6B:E2:BD

After changing HWaddr to follow the above ifconfig output the network looks good
[root@grac41 network-scripts] service network restart
[root@grac41 network-scripts]# ifconfig | egrep 'HWaddr|inet addr'
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 08:00:27:89:E9:A2  
          inet addr:192.168.1.101  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
eth2      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 08:00:27:6B:E2:BD  
          inet addr:192.168.2.101  Bcast:192.168.2.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

Restart CRS
[root@grac41 network-scripts]# crsctl stop crs -f
[root@grac41 network-scripts]# crsctl start crs
[root@grac41 network-scripts]# crsctl check cluster -all
