ENABLING ACFS VOLUME ERRORS ORA-15489 AND SAME VOLUME DISABLING ERRORS WITH ORA-15468 (Doc ID 1556910.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 31, 2016

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

This is 3 node RAC

- CRS started on node1 but the ACFS volume is not getting enabled, while enabling it is showing below error: 

     ORA-15489: conflicting volume already open on this node (DBD ERROR: OCIStmtExecute)

- And while disabling it is showing below error:

       voldisable -a
     ORA-15032: not all alterations performed
     ORA-15468: volume 'GGVOL1' in diskgroup 'GOLDENGATE' is currently being accessed (DBD ERROR: OCIStmtExecute)

- On other 2 nodes ACFS is running fine with volume enabled and mounted.


Changes

Trying to  apply patch 14275572 (11.2.0.3.4 GI PSU 4) using "Opatch auto" on node1 without unmounting ACFS filesystems. 
- Opatch failed as CRS was unable to come down as ACFS was still in use. 
- With force option as well CRS was not coming down.
