Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The instances on 2nd node are not coming up, upon closer inspection it turns out that the CSS daemon on the 2nd node cannot join the cluster. The node alert log ($GRID_HOME/log/<node>/alert<node>.log) shows:

All expected disks are there, permissions are fine but Clusterware reports they are not available


Fiber Adapter has been changed/replaced after failure
