These steps are not necessary for a test or production environment. However they might make your VMware test cluster just a little more stable and they will provide a good learning opportunity about Grid Infrastructure.
Grid Infrastructure must be running on only one node to change these settings. Shutdown the clusterware on collabn2 as user root.
[oracle@collabn1 ~]$ ssh collabn2 Last login: Wed Mar 30 14:50:49 2011 Set environment by typing 'oenv' - default is instance RAC1. collabn2:/home/oracle[RAC1]$ su - Password: racattack [root@collabn2 bin]# crsctl stop crs CRS-2791: Starting shutdown of Oracle High Availability Services-managed resources on 'collabn2' CRS-2673: Attempting to stop 'ora.crsd' on 'collabn2' CRS-2790: Starting shutdown of Cluster Ready Services-managed resources on 'collabn2' ... ... ...

Return to node collabn1. As the root user, increase the misscount so that CRS waits 1.5 minutes before it reboots. (VMware can drag a little on some laptops!)
[root@collabn1 ~]# crsctl get css misscount 30 [root@collabn1 ~]# crsctl set css misscount 90 Configuration parameter misscount is now set to 90.
Increase the disktimeout so that CRS waits 10 minutes for I/O to complete before rebooting.
[root@collabn1 ~]# crsctl get css disktimeout 200 [root@collabn1 ~]# crsctl set css disktimeout 600 Configuration parameter disktimeout is now set to 600.
Restart CRS on the other node.
[root@collabn1 bin]# ssh collabn2 [root@collabn2 bin]# crsctl start crs
