Information in this document applies to any platform.


We might run into the following scenario when try to re-create the DBFS_DG diskgroup, and the diskgroup is dismounted due to missing disks.

SQL> drop diskgroup DBFS_DG force including contents;
drop diskgroup DBFS_DG force including contents

* ERROR at line 1:
ORA-15039: diskgroup not dropped
ORA-15276: ASM diskgroup DBFS_DG has cluster voting files

And the attempt to move the voting files to an available diskgroup would fail as well. 

bash-4.1$ /u01/app/ replace votedisk +RECO_DG

Oracle Cluster Registry initialization failed accessing Oracle Cluster Registry device: PROC-26: Error while accessing the physical storage
CRS-4000: Command Add failed, or completed with errors.
