Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later

Grid Infrastructure 12.2 disk discovery fails on Solaris 11.3

All SAN disks dedicated to ASM are EFI labelled (SAN block is 512 or 4K).
The device representing the entire disk belongs to GI owner (here oragrid) and asmadmin Unix group, with permissions 660

For example disk a1b12 :

ls -lL /dev/rdsk/a1b12
crw-rw---- 1 oragrid asmadmin 279, 127 Oct 18 2016 /dev/rdsk/a1b12

12.2 kfod does not discover disks with errors given below,  whereas it works well with 12.1

KFOD-00312: Error discovering diskstring /dev/rdsk/a1b12
ORA-27094: raw volume used can damage partition table



 12.2 Grid Infrastructure fresh installation
