Information in this document applies to any platform.
"opatch auto" or "rootcrs.pl -unlock" or "roothas.pl -unlock" or addNode.sh hangs when there are many files in $GRID_HOME/rdbms/audit directory in 11gR2 Grid Infrastructure. $GRID_HOME/rdbms/audit is the default audit location for ASM connections.
In this example, there are thousands of audit files:
-rw-r----- 1 grid oinstall 768 Aug 27 16:58 +asm1_ora_1010_1.aud
-rw-r----- 1 grid oinstall 768 Aug 27 16:58 +asm1_ora_24813_1.aud
