How to register diskgroup resources in OCR (Doc ID 1998495.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 07, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In normal cases, when an ASM diskgroup is created and mounted, it is automatically registered in OCR. An entry ora.<DGNAME>.dg will show up in crsctl stat res -t output.

In some cases, if a diskgroup is accidentally removed from OCR, it is no longer showing up in "crsctl stat res -t" output, how to register the ASM diskgroup back to OCR?

Currently there is no srvctl add diskgroup command available.

In this case, register or modify a database resource with the dependency on the diskgroup will fail with error:

Even though the database RACDB is running and diskgroup +FRA is mounted and in use by the database.
