ASM instance or Database instance on Windows platforms may fail in a RAC environment with the following errors:

Errors in file d:\oracle\product\10.2.0\admin\mydb\udump\mydb_ora_5555.trc: 

ORA-00603: ORACLE server session terminated by fatal error 
ORA-27501: IPC error creating a port 
ORA-27300: OS system dependent operation:IPC_TCPListen failed with status: 10022 
ORA-27301: OS failure message: An invalid argument was supplied. 
ORA-27302: failure occurred at: initport_3 

These errors may ultimately lead in an instance eviction.


This type of error may occur after an increase in parallelism when running Parallel Query, and/or after an increase in the # of nodes in the cluster.

This may also occur due to changes in how LMS Processes are calculated.
