The Diskgroup Does Not Rebalance: Ora-15041, all disks in status ADDING or FORCING

This problem can occur on any platform.


After attempting to refresh the disks in the diskgroup by adding new ones and removing the old ones, all the disks are in status ADDING (new disks) or DROPPING (old disks). No entry in v$asm_operation.

ASM is functional, but the older disks are full and no new datafile can be added nor the existing one extended.

Rebalance fails with ORA-15041.

The operation has been performed several times in the past without any issue.
