Database-- Oracle Database Installation/runInstaller -- using virtual hostname

If there is a need for using a virtual hostname during Oracle installations, it can be accomplished by the following;

export ORACLE_HOSTNAME=virtualhost.domain.com
./runInstaller OUI_HOSTNAME=virtualhost.domain.com

Oracle Database installation on a IBM HACMP cluster can be an example for using virtual hostname. That is ; after a failover, the secondary server should able to listen on the same ip/hostname as the primary server. This is accomplished by using the service ip.. So, Oracle Database installation on a HACMP cluster should use the service name as hostname..
