Oracle Grid 11.2.0.3.0 Reports Incorrect Size Of Slices ORA-00600 [17090] (Doc ID 1483931.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 22, 2012

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Same setup works fine for 11.2.0.1.0 and 11.2.0.2.0.
However in 11.2.0.3 asm alert.log and ASMCA report errors:
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [17090], [], [], [], [], []

That is why you can't use a DID device with 11.2.0.3.0. The devices are configured correctly. They are owned by oracle:dba with permissions 660 (we are using dba as the asm group). You are only using slices 1 and 3. This behavior started in 11.2.0.2.0 where you started getting PRVF-5150 warning about not being able to write to the ASM disks and when you start 11.2.0.3.0 installer, Oracle Grid 11.2.0.3.0 Reports incorrect size of slices.
Error is asm alert.log:
ERROR: diskgroup OCR_VOTE was not created
ORA-15018: diskgroup cannot be created
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [17090], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []

You are not using Sun zone cluster and you are not running in a zone.
