ASMCA Can Not Discover All The ASMLIB Disks On The Second RAC Node (ASM 11.2).

(Doc ID 1395851.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 04, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 to 11.2.0.3 [Release 11.2]
Linux x86
Linux x86-64

Symptoms


1) During a RAC 11.2 Grid Infrastructure installation, ASMCA is not discovering  the ASMLIB disks on the second RAC node.

2) ASMLIB API was correctly validated on each node, as described in the next document:

=)> Collecting The Required Information For Support To Troubleshot ASM/ASMLIB Issues. <Document 869526.1>

3) And kfod successfully discovered all the ASMLIB disks on both nodes using the correct ASM_DISKSTRING='ORCL:*':

Node #1:

[oracle@node1]$ /oracle/GRID/11202/bin/kfod asm_diskstring='ORCL:*' disks=all

Note: Keep in mind that the Grid Infrastructure software does not need to be installed to use kfod, since kfod is located as well on the staging area where you uncompressed the Grid Infrastructure software, as the following example:

/stage/grid/stage/ext/bin/kfod


Where: "/stage" is the directory where I uncompressed the source software for the Grid Infrastructure software.
