Permission on ASM Devices Changes on Reboot (Doc ID 2192374.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 16, 2020

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.6 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [2.6.39] to Oracle Linux 6.8 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [4.1.12] [Release OL6U6 to OL6U8]
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

The ASM devices lose without any identifiable reason the privileges oracle:oinstall and are set back to root:disk .

The SAN devices are connected with multipath and integrated with udev.

Debugging has been enabled for multipath and for udev, but only apparent error is :



Change of disk mapping and/or reboot
