Last updated on DECEMBER 01, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1.0 to 11.2.0.3 [Release 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

You have a normal redundancy diskgroup on 11.2 having 3 failgroups. And one of them is a small quorum failgroup.
There are equal number of disks in the two regular failgroups and all of them are of the same size.
The quorum/NFS failgroup has one disk of very small size.

When you are querying v$asm_disk, you see uneven space utilization:
