Symptoms

In a non-RAC environment, the CSS creation process of root.sh or "localconfig add" executions could fail with the following error messages related to crsctl.bin binary.

The errors could be in different formats. After fixing one, another one could show up.

Initial error could be

# sh -x $ORACLE_HOME/bin/localconfig add
SILENT=%s_silent%
CSS_ORACLE_HOME=%s_OracleHome%
CSS_ORACLE_OWNER=%OwnerId%
CSS_DBA_GROUP=%s_usergroup%
CSS_LANGUAGE_ID=%s_languageid%
.....
+ /bin/echo No value set for the parameter CSS_ORACLE_HOME. Use parameter file to set values
No value set for the parameter CSS_ORACLE_HOME. Use parameter file to set values
+ usage
+ printf Usage:
Usage:+ printf /u01/app/oracle/product/asm/bin/localconfig [add] [delete] [ reset <destination Oracle home> ]
/u01/app/oracle/product/asm/bin/localconfig [add] [delete] [ reset <destination Oracle home> ]+ printf [-silent]
[-silent]+ printf [-paramfile <Complete path of file specifying parameter values>]
[-paramfile <Complete path of file specifying parameter values>]+ return 1


Then after hard-coding the parameter values to the correct ones. The error changed to

After fixing permissions of the target binaries, the error changed to

+ /u01/app/oracle/product/asm/bin/crsctl create scr oracle
