Cannot Start Goldengate Application Resource from Clusterware per GG/HA Config on Exadata (Doc ID 1910007.1)

Last updated on JULY 23, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 11.2.1.0.10 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

We have an exadata system. I am implementing goldengate. This runs successfully, but I want to configure goldendate to stop/start/relocate under clusterware for HA purposes.
I have configured an application vip under clusterware. I can stop and start this successfully.
I configured an application resource for goldengate with a crs action script, I can run the action script successfully on either node manually.
When I run crsctl start resource, this fails and the cause is not clear to me.
Example if I start with the vip resource started:
ASM1:oracle@dev-exd-dbadm02:~>crsctl start resource gg_dcogs1_app
CRS-2672: Attempting to start 'gg_dcogs1_app' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02'
CRS-2674: Start of 'gg_dcogs1_app' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02' failed
CRS-2679: Attempting to clean 'gg_dcogs1_app' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02'
CRS-2681: Clean of 'gg_dcogs1_app' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02' succeeded
CRS-2527: Unable to start 'gg_dcogs1_app' because it has a 'hard' dependency on 'dev-exd-8cc-gg-vip'
CRS-2525: All instances of the resource 'dev-exd-8cc-gg-vip' are already running; relocate is not allowed because the force option was not specified
CRS-4000: Command Start failed, or completed with errors.

Example if I stop the vip resource:
ASM2:oracle@dev-exd-dbadm02:/backup/GG/DCOGS1>crsctl start resource gg_dcogs1_app -n dev-exd-dbadm02
CRS-2672: Attempting to start 'dev-exd-8cc-gg-vip' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02'
CRS-2676: Start of 'dev-exd-8cc-gg-vip' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02' succeeded
CRS-2672: Attempting to start 'gg_dcogs1_app' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02'
CRS-2674: Start of 'gg_dcogs1_app' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02' failed
CRS-2679: Attempting to clean 'gg_dcogs1_app' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02'
CRS-2681: Clean of 'gg_dcogs1_app' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02' succeeded
CRS-2673: Attempting to stop 'dev-exd-8cc-gg-vip' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02'
CRS-2677: Stop of 'dev-exd-8cc-gg-vip' on 'dev-exd-dbadm02' succeeded
CRS-4000: Command Start failed, or completed with errors.
