Symptoms

Clusterware on the Exadata DB nodes may crash after a cell reboot/outage.  The issue may affect all the DB nodes in the cluster, and can cause a complete outage in the environment. 

The clusterware CSSD trace would indicate that the crash occurred due to the fence timeout, and the fence timeout occurred due to the reason that the diskmon was waiting for the acknowledments from the slave diskmons running on ASM/RDBMS side.

  

Changes

ADR diag destination is moved to ACFS.
