ERROR PRVG-11321 DURING INSTALLATION GRID 19C

Hi friends! In today’s post we will see a slightly unusual case that has occurred during the installation of Oracle Grid Infrastructure 19c. After configuring the installation windows according to our environment, we proceed to execute the installer and after booting and advancing 6%, it gives us an ERROR PRVG-11321 error and exits it. When looking at the logs we see the following message.

Error codes

It does not give us much information about what the error PRVG-11321 could be, we continue browsing the files and see the following text:

It tells us that the name of the computer and that of the host do not correspond, causing the installer to fail.

We checked both parameters and that, due to the length of the machine name (SRVBHOSTAVH_TEST), the operating system removes the last character causing the names to not match (SRVBHOSTAVH_TES). There is a 15 character restriction for this field.

Once we change the name to SRVBHOSTAVHTEST, the installer goes ahead and installs without problems.
