RAC on Windows: Grid Infrastructure Resource 'ora.asm' State Details of 'Under THA, Starting' and Clusterware Stack Takes a Long Time to Start (Doc ID 2246721.1)

Last updated on MAY 16, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.2 and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)

Symptoms

Starting Oracle Grid Infrastructure stack seems to 'suddenly' have started taking a very long time.  While observing the startup (using the command 'crsctl stat res -t -init') we are able to 'catch' the ora.asm resource with a TARGET of ONLINE, but remaining in a STATE of OFFLINE for a long time and showing STATE DETAILS:   'Under THA, Starting'

This issue may be observed whenever the Grid Infrastructure stack is stopped / started, such as:

1.  explicitly issuing 'crsctl stop crs' or 'crsctl start crs'

2.  rebooting the cluster nodes (forcing a restart of Oracle Clusterware)

3.  while patching, such as when running 'rootcrs.pl -prepatch' and/or 'rootcrs.pl -postpatch' since those scripts include stopping and starting of CRS
