 Error: Unable to get minimum number of grid disks from node using command export ORACLE_BASE=/u02/app/oracle;export ORACLE_HOME=/u02/app/grid/19c;export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/u02/app/grid/19c/lib; /u02/app/grid/19c/bin/kfod.bin disks=all op=disks ...
 Collecting diagnostics...

There appeared to be a permissions issue on the directory /u02/app/grid/ which is owned by root:root with 750 permissions so the first time it ran it said permission denied. After changing the permissions to 755 on that directory, it now says there is no output.


-bash-5.0$ id
uid=100(oracle) gid=501(oinstall)
-bash-5.0$ export ORACLE_BASE=/u02/app/oracle
-bash-5.0$ export ORACLE_HOME=/u02/app/grid/19c

-bash-5.0$ /u02/app/grid/19c/bin/kfod.bin disks=all op=disks


as root it's showing as expected
