- A disk replaced on any of the slots 2 to 11 may have a partition table.
- The CellDisk created, the devicePartition attribute will be referencing a partition and not the whole disk
- If this is present on multiple cells, restarting cellsrv process could lead to the rediscovery of the disk, removing the partition, which lead to the lost of multiple disks.
- Diskgroup will not mount, failing with errors ORA-15040, ORA-15066, ORA-15042
ORA-15040: diskgroup is incomplete

- The bug affects only disk replacement for slots 2 to 11. System disks (slots 0 and 1) are not affected by this bug.
