LDAP DBA:DBA User and group Fails To Start Oracleasm.service (Doc ID 2179906.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 22, 2016

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.0 to Oracle Linux 7.2 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kerne [4.1.12] [Release OL7 to OL7U2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When we boot up the OVM server, the oracleasm script runs but fails to find the user oracle or group dba. Therefore it cannot set the ASM disk permissions.
This only occurs when we use an LDAP user account and not the local  user account .
