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


On a cluster which has application VIPs configured adding a database resource via srvctl fails with error:

$ srvctl add database -d PROD1 -o /oracle/app/product/11.2
PRCR-1006 : Failed to add resource ora.prod1.db for prod1
PRCR-1071 : Failed to register or update resource ora.prod1.db
CRS-2566: User 'oracle' does not have sufficient permissions to operate on resource 'sap.RAC.dbapvip', which is part of the dependency specification.

User oracle has the following id:

$ id oracle
uid=100(oracle) gid=200(dba) groups=200(dba),300(oper),250(oinstall)

The application vip sap.RAC.dbapvip ACL is like:

$ crsctl stat res sap.RAC.dbapvip -f |grep ACL
