On a new clusterware installation on Linux root.sh script is failing with the following error while running root.sh on the first node:
Failed to upgrade Oracle Cluster Registry configuration
The problem can be tracked down to clsfmt command:
clsfmt: Received unexpected error 4 from skgfifi
skgfifi: Additional information: -2
Additional information: 1000718336
It has been found that the following changes can cause this problem to occur:
1. Use Mutiple Path (MP) disk configuration, may hit this issue.
2. Use EMC device (powerpath**) may hit this issue.
But it was not confirmed that these are the only things that can cause this problem to occur, as it has been found that on other hardware and configuration the problem might occur, the key change in this issue is that if the disk size presented from the storage to the cluster nodes are not dividable by 4K the problem should occur.
