PRVG-11250 : The check "RPM Package Manager database" was not performed because it needs 'root' user privileges

Saw error PRVG-10467 during the validation check before grid installation.

[grid@primary01 ~]$ cd $ORACLE_HOME
[grid@primary01 grid]$ ./runcluvfy.sh stage -pre crsinst -n primary01,primary02 -verbose
...

PRVG-11250 : The check "RPM Package Manager database" was not performed because
it needs 'root' user privileges.

PRVG-11250 means that the CVU validation program is unable to check the RPM database in this server because of a lack of root privilege.

Solution

To solve the problem, just provide root credential to the validation program.

[grid@primary01 grid]$ ./runcluvfy.sh stage -pre crsinst -n primary01,primary02 -verbose -method root
Enter "ROOT" password:
********

By adding parameter -method root, we passed the check. Alternatively, we may also use -method sudo -user grid, as long as gird is able to sudo.
