Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After clusterware is upgraded from 10.2.0.1 to 10.2.0.4 or 10.2.0.5, clusterware will not come up on both nodes at once.

The crsd.log on the dysfunctional node reports "clssgsGroupJoin: CSS has not reached fatal mode.Registration is not yet safe. Retrying"

Note: There are other issues which can cause symptom of "clssgsGroupJoin: CSS has not reached fatal mode.Registration is not yet safe. Retrying".  The KEY symptoms here are the "clssgmAssignMemberNo(): grock(#CSS_CLSSOMON) memberNo(1) already assigned" and "clssgsGroupJoin: member in use group(1/#CSS_CLSSOMON)"  messages .

This same problem can happen on AIX platform after applying AIX Service Pack 1 (6100-09-01-1341).

Changes

 Upgrade from 10.2.0.1 or 10.2.0.2 to 10.2.0.4 or 10.2.0.5.
