Symptoms

1. The following error occurs when creating a diskgroup in a single ASM instance environment.

CREATE DISKGROUP DATA
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-15018: diskgroup cannot be created
ORA-15030: diskgroup name "DATA" is in use by another diskgroup

2. DATA diskgroup has never been created before and all permission for ASM devices show the correct owner and group information.
    The device in question can be read/written in OS level without any issue.

    $dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdsk/c25t7d6  bs=1048576 count=10

    10+0 records in
    10+0 records out

3. Diskgroup can be created with asm_diskstring='/dev/rdsk/c12t7d6' parameter - i.e just one device path for the diskgroup.

   SQL> CREATE DISKGROUP DATA EXTERNAL REDUNDANCY DISK '/dev/rdsk/c25t7d6';
