Configure ASM Instance in RAC cluster - problem

Linux RH4 with Oracle 11.1.0.6
I previously had ASM working in a RAC environment, but have uninstalled on all 3 nodes following Oracle guidelines.
When I attempt to re-configure ASM it states that an ASM instance is located in nodes 2 and 3. Previous ASM software has been removed, and there are no entries in the /etc/oratab files on any of the nodes.
How do I locate and then remove these instances on nodes 2 and 3
Thanks

Steps in Note 311350.1 have been followed, and there are no occurances of ASM appearing in the crs_stat output. Also the fact that the ASM software has also been removed from all of the various, where are these ASM instances being started?
I am unable to proceed past the "Select Configuration Screen" which gives you the option to 1)Create Database, 2)Configure ASM or 3) Install Software only.
When I select option 2 and enter ASM SYS password, I get the error message that ASM instances are present in the other nodes.
Would appreciate any help in how I can progress past this stage.
Thanks

    Help while creating ASM instance on rac environment on Oracle enterprise Linux 4 x84_64 Update 5 (10g2).
    a) Installed ASMLib 2.0 Packages

    By running following command (on both node), I get following that means disk are detected.

    But Disk members not displayed for creating disk groups. I even tried to "Change Disk Discovery Path" button and put "ORCL:VOL*" but still no luck.
    Someone told me use, use ADD DISKS button but this button is disabled for me.
    Can anyone, please help me if I missing something.

    I set the Change Disk Discovery Path" to /dev/oracleasm/disk/* instead of "ORCL:VOL* and this worked for me.

  • Multiple ASM instances using single cluster install - Is it possible??

    Hi,
    I have 2 node RAC cluster installed on Linux. All the storage is on EMC. I need to setup another environment using HP storage on the same hosts. Is it possible to created second ASM instance using the same cluster install?? I wanted to have clear separation b/w EMC and HP environments and that's wondering if it's feasible to do that.
    Haven't tried it yet to see if it complains.
    Thx
    Anitha

    Anitha,
    The data migration won't happen (at least not aggressively) until you do step 2 in your list where you remove the EMC disks. That removal operation will take a long time as Oracle will have to move the data before it can complete the operation. If you want to be sure, I'd recommend creating a new disk group with one of your new disks, put a small tablespace in it, create some data in it, then add a disk to that new group and remove the original disk. Then you'll have some confidence in the procedure and verify that it works without risking your production data. After you test, you can drop the disk group and use the disks for their intended purposes.
    To answer your question, yes, that's the process exactly as I suggested it above. Should work fine--but will probably take a while to do the remove, so be prepared to leave that running for quite a while (i.e. don't expect to close the terminal and go home right after running the remove).

  • How to configure ASM of 11gR2 RAC on Solaris 10

    Hi all,
    I have the first time to install the RAC on Solaris 10. I have stuck on the ASM disk group step in the Grid Infrastructure.
    Our Configuration
    2 Sun Server in Solaris 10 with same configure (which we are not using shared drive)
    250GB Local Hard Disk
    1100 GB Raw Disk (which at SAN)
    3GB x 3 Raw Disk (which at SAN) for voting disk
    When I install Grid Infrastructure, I select first option: Install and Confgure Grid in Cluster (I can't remember the exact name) and also select the Typical Installation. The previous steps are successful before the ASM Disk Group. At ASM Disk Group, no disk are display for selection.
    So, how to fix the missing disk in this ASM Disk Group creation?
    Please help!

    I would break the 1100G into [email protected] devices and use EXTERNAL redundancy (RAID on the SAN side). You will get much better performance. (Configured/managed a 250TB 3node cluster on Sun 6900s however my LUNs were 1.5TB in size)

    Sunny YipAgain using a single 1.1TB device will not get you better performance and should you need to add additional devices, they too will need to be 1.1TB. Sometimes smaller is better.
    Make sure you use a partition that starts at cylinder 1 or 2
    Make sure you set the correct permissions (660) and ownership (gridowner:oinstall) on those devices and make sure the oracle user is a member of that group.

  • ASM instance in the cluster shows status pending in grid control

    All,
    I have the ASM instance in separate home and the cluster database in another home .
    I am able to see the cluster database up and running in the grid control but somehow cant see the ASM instance .
    I will appreciate any pointers .
    thanks in advance

    Try these two things:
    1) Deployments=>Refresh Host Configuration=>Select the hostname and then hit on "Refresh Hosts".
    If that doesn't work
    2) Targets=>Databases=>Select the ASM Instance=>Configure

    DBCA could not startup the ASM instance on node: rac1. Manual intervention is required to recreate these instances. If you choose to proceed, ASM diskgroups will not be mounted on non-started remote ASM instances. Do you want to proceed with ASM diskgroup management?
    and problem is how to do this "Manual intervention is required to recreate these instances", I already do 1, dd the asm disk, 2, remove the +ASM directory from $ORACLE_BASE, 3,clean ASM info from /etc/oratab, so what i can do next ?

    If yes does it should be created on shared device or something else???Normally database will reside in SHARED STORAGE and ASM & RBDMS instances willbe in stand alone systems..
    ASM diskgorup will be sharable to all the instances... not the instance can be sharable

    That tutorial picks up after you created the disks.
    How did you create the virtual disks attatched to your vm? What are its properties - from VMWorksation's perspective.
    How did you create the "copy" of the vm?
    It depends on how you actually created the disks, at the vm level, not the partitioning and formatting at the vm's OS level. I've used Tim's tutorials myself on some other ASM related projects, and he typically has you create the ASM disks as 'sharable', which would mean they would not copy necessarily copy with the vm. I've not played around the with variants much, but I'm pretty sure what you are seeing is a result of either the way the disk was created in the original vm, or the way you made the copy of the vm, or both.
    Take a look at the machine properties of the two vms in the VMWorkstation control panel, looking at the HDD definitions. Compare and contrast.Hi EdStevens,
    My problem resolved with below steps. Thanks fro your replies.

  • How to start ASM instance at boot time - RHEL 2.1

    Oracle 10.1.0.3
    RHEL 2.1
    I'm not able to get the ASM instance (not RAC) to start at boot time. It seems that the ocssd daemon does not finish starting until after all rc* scripts, including rc.local, have finished executing.
    Patch 3458327 includes a new dbstart with header notes that are in conflict. The notes says that dbstart can't be used to start ASM until AFTER all rc* is finished.  Then it continues and states that ASM instance startup should be put in rc.local.
    As soon as I get logged on, a ps -ef|grep ocssd shows the daemon running. I can then manually start the ASM instance.  There must be a way to get the ASM instance "auto" started at boot time.
    Ideas?

    The cheapest and administratively easiest way for me was to start Oracle instances (ASM and data) by "at" command :-) from rc scripts. Something like:
    ....echo "oracle start" | at now+2min....
    Additionally the deferred startup has some additional advantages in my environment, so I am not motivated to look for better solution.
    Best regards,

  • ASM instances on 2 node Oracle RAC 10g r2  on Red Hat 4 u1

    Hi all
    I'm experiencing a problem in configuring diskgroups under +ASM instances on a two node Oracle RAC.
    I followed the official guide and also official documents from metalink site, but i'm stuck with the visibility of asm disks.
    I created fake disks on nfs with Netapp certified storage binding them to block device with the usual trick "losetup /dev/loopX /nfs/disk1 " ,
    run "oracleasm createdisk DISKX /dev/loopX" on one node and
    "oracleasm scandisks" on the other one.
    With "oracleasm listdisks" i can see the disks at OS level in both nodes , but , when i try to create and mount diskgroup in the ASM instances , on the instance on which i create the diskgroup all is well, but the other one doesn't see the disks at all, and diskgroup mount fails with :
    ERROR: no PST quorum in group 1: required 2, found 0

    Yes you are right , I have to make to sure stock budget doesn't get credited.
    If you remember in one of my other threads, i wanted to derive commitment item from Matl grp, it was for this purpose. I will derive commitment through matl group at the time of procurement / GR etc and assign a dummy commitment item to stock a/cs. Where as i will derive a consumption commiment item from consumption GLs.
    Thank you

  • Asm, instance and service failing to start 10g rac redhat el5

    hi,
    i have been following a how to guide from oracle's website about implementing a 10g rac system using el5 (http://www.oracle.com/technology/pub/articles/hunter_rac10gr2_iscsi.html), by the end of the installation and setup I had both the nodes up and running and all services were up and running. Then under the root account I rebooted one of the nodes. now when I check the status of the services I get this:
    [[email protected] ~]$ crs_stat -t
    Name           Type           Target    State     Host

    ora.rac02.vip  application    ONLINE    ONLINE    rac02though I can start the asm instance manually by
    srvctl start asm -n rac01and it starts but the instance and service on the rebooted node still wont start. is there a log file which tells me what the error is when it tries to start the instance? what can I do to ensure that if a node is rebooted that all of the services get started correctly and the node automatically rejoins the cluster (i thought I had set all of this from the instructions of the guide I was following).
    Regards
    Martin.

    Check ASM resource:
    crs_stat -p "resource_name
    $ crs_stat | grep NAME\= | grep ASM1
    NAME=ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    $ crs_stat -p ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    NAME=ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    TYPE=application
    ACTIVE_PLACEMENT=0
    *AUTO_START*=1
    CHECK_INTERVAL=600
    DESCRIPTION=CRS application for ASM instance
    What do you see AUTO_START?
    if 1 = auto start:
    or check error ASM while start... at ASM_HOME/log/rac01/racg/*
    If AUTO_START=2
    Oracle Clusterware is configured to start the VIP, listener, instance, ASM, database services and other resources during system boot. Starting with 10.1.0.4, it is possible to modify some resources to have their profile parameter AUTO_START set to the value 2. This means that after node reboot, or when Oracle Clusterware is started, resources with AUTO_START=2 will need to be started manually via srvctl. Please work with Oracle Support if you need to modify this attribute.
    If AUTO_START=2 and need to change to 1:
    Example:
    $ crs_stat -p ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    NAME=ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    TYPE=application
    ACTIVE_PLACEMENT=0
    AUTO_START=2
    $ crs_stat -p ora.rac01.ASM1.asm > ORA_CRS_HOME/crs/public/ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    $ crs_unregister ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    $ crs_stat -p ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    CRS-0210: Could not find resource 'ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    $ vi ORA_CRS_HOME/crs/public/ora.rac01.ASM1.asm.cap
    AUTO_START=2
    to
    AUTO_START=1
    $ crs_register ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    $ crs_stat -p ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    NAME=ora.rac01.ASM1.asm
    TYPE=application
    *AUTO_START=1*
