RE: RAC no more HA after upgrading to

My oracm configuration:

ClusterName=3DOracle Cluster Manager, version 9i
PrivateNodeNames=3Dracnode1 racnode2
PublicNodeNames=3Drac1 rac2

Just a part of my cm.log

>WARNING: PollingThread(): node(1) missed(50) checkin(s), tid =3D

NMEVENT_RECONFIG [00][00][00][00][00][00][00][01] {Sun Jan 30 18:37:14
2005 }
Successful reconfiguration, 1 active node(s) node 0 is the master, my
node num is 0 (reconfig 5) {Sun Jan 30 18:37:14 2005 }

After the reconfiguration the node alive doesn't repond anymore. The
processes are up but none can connect and even with a sqlplus "/as
sysdba" (doing any kind of interrogation) I obtain a:

ORA-01012: not logged on

It is not really a hang because when the interconnect link is up again
(even without an oracm or an instance on the other node) all is back
It seems a new control is performed on the interconnect...

I wished to check if others had experienced this behaviour.
