Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.1 and later

Symptoms

Customers quite often clean up DIAGNOSTIC_DEST simply by removing it (rm -rf).
For 11g, this has proved harmless for single instance/CRS/ASM/RAC.

In CRS/ASM/RAC 12c environment, the removal of the DIAGNOSTIC_DEST can lead to various errors. Below are some examples:

[client(11927688)]CRS-2339:GPNPD advertisement with MDNSD failed. This may block some cluster
configuration changes. Advertisement attempts will continue.
