Oracle RAC on Linux...

P: n/a

I have been trying to get Oracle RAC running under linux (using Firewire)
and have been having some problems with OCFS. At this point, it seems
everything is working correctly on the firewire side (the sbp2 module
loads and I can fdisk the firewire drive without any issues), but the
loading of OCFS gets the following errors:

Oracle Cluster FileSystem 1.0.10-PROD2 Thu Oct 30 16:52:56 PST 2003 (build 58096323e868c6646e63f9c288d1e334)
(1132) ERROR: 'node_name' not set or too long, Linux/ocfsmain.c, 491
(1132) ERROR: 'ip_address' not set or too long, Linux/ocfsmain.c, 499
(1132) ERROR: 'guid' not set correctly, Linux/ocfsmain.c, 507

I am using the precompiled packages (RPMs) available at,
but assume that I need to create some form of configuration file to
satisfy the errors above. Is that correct, and if so, where and what does
the configuration file contain?
