ASMCMD command will not allow any user other than the actual Grid Home Owner to run it.

Per the Oracle Documentation: Oracle® Automatic Storage Management Administrator's Guide11g Release 2 (11.2)  it is allowed to run asmcmd from other than the grid owner.

However, there is an existing bug, Bug 11907186 - ASMCMD UTILITY CANNOT BE RUN FROM DBA USERS OTHER THAN PRODUCT OWNER  that this functionality does not work.


If you see this error, then this may be the bug.
