see the note [ID 887471.1] & bug note [Bug 8901977]

Its a bug its not our fault.We can Ignore its due to DNS (If we are not using DNS it will give this error).

shutdown and it is a good idea to make a backup before proceeding to the Database Installation.

after starting 2 nodes again use

[root@rac1 ~]#service ntpd restart

[root@rac2 ~]#service ntpd restart

And start Database Installation.
