Symptoms

While upgrading 10.2 CRS to 11.2 in a standalone installation, ASMCA fails to create 11.2 ASM instance.

Oracle 11gR2 Grid infrastructure installation reports the following errors:


INFO: Read: PRCR-1079 : Failed to start resource ora.asm
INFO: Read: CRS-2674: Start of ora.cssd on edprddb01 failed
INFO: Read: CRS-2678: ora.cssd on edprddb01 has experienced an unrecoverable failure
INFO: Read: CRS-0267: Human intervention required to resume its availability.


Installation invokes ASMCA to create ASM instance. ASMCA log shows ORA-1034 when starting ASM instance with "checkAndStartupInstance"

In the meantime, 11.2 CSS logs shows that CSS fails to listen with IPC protocol. Hence, 11.2 CSS cannot be started.
