Network interface information with OIFCFG command in RAC
OIFCFG command will help to administrate and check information regarding network interface in clusterware.
It will help in allocate and deallocate network interfaces to components, Direct components to use specific network interfaces and retrive information.
PUBLIC: An interface that can be used for communication with components external to Oracle RAC instance such as Oracle Net and Virtual Internet Protocol (VIP) addresses.
CLUSTER_INTERCONNECT: A private interface used for the cluster interconnect to comunicate nodes with each other.
Check the network interfaces in clusterware
List the interface present on the node.
Check network information
Return value of global public and private interconnect information which interface type has been defined with the setif command.
eth0 172.19.141.0 global public
eth1 172.21.65.0 global cluster_interconnect
Set the global interconnect value of ethernet
Set the value of eth0 to 172.19.141.0 as a global interface.
You can sets an interface type (public, cluster interconnect, or Oracle ASM).
oifcfg setif -global eth0/172.19.141.0:cluster_interconnect
Delete the global value
oifcfg delif -global eth1/172.21.65.0
