TEST-CASE

==============

Cellsrv shutdown without force fails when a diskgroup is dismounted and even though there are no offline disks on the cells.The following test case reproduces the issue:

a) All the griddisks on the cells are ONLINE and asmdeactivationoutcome is set to Yes.


[rootslcc13cel12 ~]# cellcli -e list griddisk attributes name,asmmodestatus,asmdeactivationoutcome
DBFS_DG_CD_02_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_03_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_04_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_05_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_06_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_07_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_08_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_09_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_10_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_11_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
............
............

b) Dismount one of the diskgroups.
SQL> select name,state from gv$asm_diskgroup;
.
NAME STATE
------------------------------ -----------
DBFS_DG DISMOUNTED
RECO_SLCC13 MOUNTED
DBFS_DG DISMOUNTED
RECO_SLCC13 MOUNTED

c) The griddisks in the dismounted diskgroup become UNKNOWN and asmdeactivationoutcome is still set to Yes.
[rootslcc13cel12 ~]# cellcli -e list griddisk attributes
name,asmmodestatus,asmdeactivationoutcome
DBFS_DG_CD_02_slcc13cel12 UNKNOWN Yesà <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
DBFS_DG_CD_03_slcc13cel12 UNKNOWN Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_04_slcc13cel12 UNKNOWN Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_05_slcc13cel12 UNKNOWN Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_06_slcc13cel12 UNKNOWN Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_07_slcc13cel12 UNKNOWN Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_08_slcc13cel12 UNKNOWN Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_09_slcc13cel12 UNKNOWN Yes
DBFS_DG_CD_10_slcc13cel12 UNKNOWN Yes

RECO_slcc13_CD_00_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
RECO_slcc13_CD_01_slcc13cel12 ONLINE Yes
...........................

d) If cellsrv is shutdown without force we run into the following error.There aren't any offline disks currently on any of the cells.Also the error states that DBFS_DG may be forced to dismount but that diskgroup is already dismounted.

[rootslcc13cel12 ~]# cellcli -e alter cell shutdown services cellsrv

Stopping CELLSRV services...
The SHUTDOWN of CELLSRV services was not successful.
CELL-01548: Unable to shut down CELLSRV because disk group DBFS_DG may be forced to dismount due to reduced redundancy.

[rootslcc13cel12 ~]# cellcli -e alter cell shutdown services all

Stopping the RS, CELLSRV, and MS services...
The SHUTDOWN of ALL services was not successful.
CELL-01548: Unable to shut down CELLSRV because disk group DBFS_DG may be
forced to dismount due to reduced redundancy.
