Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: to
This problem can occur on any platform.


The steps in this note only applies to non-RAC environment. Please do not run localconfig script on RAC systems

While creating a ASM instance it is necessary to have CSS daemon running.
In 10gr1 the CSS daemon is started automatically by the root.sh in the post install step.
In 10gr2 the CSS daemon is started by running "localconfig add" script.

The script hangs and the CSS daemon does not startup completely.
ps -ef | grep d.bin
Shows ocssd.bin running. There is no error in the system log file. The last message is :
CSS completed waiting on dependencies.

But the script still hangs.
