First time guys, go easy.
I've created an ASM database and diskgroups, they are mounted:
SQL> select name, state from v$asm_diskgroup;

NAME STATE
------------------------------ -----------
DATA MOUNTED
FLASH MOUNTED

I can play around with this database, just trying to learn ASM, it's a play db.

I did the alter system commands to set asm and the controlfile to asm;

when I go into rman and issue this command:

RMAN> restore controlfile from 'D:\oradata\ORCQA08\CONTROL01.CTL';

Starting restore at 06-AUG-12
using target database control file instead of recovery catalog
allocated channel: ORA_DISK_1
channel ORA_DISK_1: SID=10 device type=DISK

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of restore command at 08/06/2012 16:17:07
ORA-19504: failed to create file "+DATA"
ORA-17502: ksfdcre:4 Failed to create file +DATA
ORA-15001: diskgroup "DATA" does not exist or is not mounted
ORA-15077: could not locate ASM instance serving a required diskgroup
ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Synchronization Service
ORA-19600: input file is control file (D:\ORADATA\ORCQA08\CONTROL01.CTL)
ORA-19601: output file is control file (+DATA)

So I googled and crs is running ok (no errors), my asm is started, the diskgroups are mounted, What else could it be? Right now I just want to move one small tablespace over to asm, later on I'll convert the entire db.

ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Manager
 *Cause: Connect to CM failed or timed out.
 *Action: Verify that the CM was started.  If the CM was not started,
          start it and then retry the database startup. If the CM died
          or is not responding, check the Oracle and CM trace files for
          errors.

Is the cluster manager started?
crsctl check  cssd

Or it could be permissions. Did you install Grid Infrastructure under the same OS account as the database? To what groups do the GI owner and the database owner belong?

Michael:

C:\Documents and Settings\imcsa_oracle>crsctl check cssd
Cluster Synchronization Services appears healthy

C:\Documents and Settings\imcsa_oracle>



So yes that's running.

OK, sorry for not answering, other priorities. Upon further investigation I see that my problem seems to have something to do with the Cluster Manager. The service is running, BUT if I run crsctl check crs, this is what i get:

C:\Documents and Settings\imcsa_oracle>crsctl check cssd
Cluster Synchronization Services appears healthy

C:\Documents and Settings\imcsa_oracle>crsctl check crs
Cluster Synchronization Services appears healthy
Cannot communicate with Cluster Ready Services
Cannot communicate with Event Manager


I've tried deleting the service and reinstalling it and get the same thing. I have 11.1 and 11.2 installed on this server, and the server is running Windows Server 2003 R2 64 bit.

The ASM instance is up, and I have a couple of diskgroups created. The problem is when I try to USE the diskgroups on another database.

TIA

Are you aware of the compatibilties between the database software and the Grid Infrastructure software? When you say thisQuote:
I have 11.1 and 11.2 installed on this server
to which are you referring? You can't run an 11.2 database against 11.1 clusterware,is that what you are trying to do?

This might be the problem. I just checked and the services for css and asm are 11.1, the other database shows 11.2, and other the database from v$instance are showing 11.2.0.3. I'm going to recreate the asm instance .

Thanks I'll let you know.

ok, what I did today was to uninstall 11.1 and install 11.2.0.3 asm. I created the asm instance and when it starts it shows my diskgroups as mounted, and I can see them in the v$asm views.

But when I go to the other database and try: create tablespace testasm datafile size 10m; I get this error:
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01119: error in creating database file '+DATA'
ORA-17502: ksfdcre:4 Failed to create file +DATA
ORA-15001: diskgroup "DATA" does not exist or is not mounted
ORA-15055: unable to connect to ASM instance
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges


I went to another database where I know asm is working and that exact syntax works fine. This version of oracle no longer has the crsctl, it's been depreciated.

When you say "install 11.2.0.3 asm" do you mean that you installed Grid Infrastructure, release 11.2.0.3? I do wonder what is going on, because crsctl is the main control utility for Grid Infrastructure, and if you don't have it, I wonder what you installed. Can you use copy/paste (formatting it with [code] tags)to show what you are doing when you say "when it starts it shows my diskgroups as mounted, and I can see them in the v$asm views"?

I do have crsctl, it's installed. Any suggestions on what to check? What I meant to say is I believe the problem is with the target database, not with the asm instance. I changed the db_create_file_dest to +DATA and the db_create_online_log_dest_1 to +FLASH. What am I missing?

This is from the asm instance, headings off.

SQL> l
1* select * from v$asm_diskgroup
SQL> /

1 DATA 512 4096
1048576 MOUNTED EXTERN 40000 39941 0
59 0 39941 0
11.2.0.0.0
10.1.0.0.0 N

2 FLASH 512 4096
1048576 MOUNTED EXTERN 30000 29948 0
52 0 29948 0
11.2.0.0.0
10.1.0.0.0 N

There's one diskgroup called DATA and another called FLASH.

ASMCMD> ls -l

I believe my problem is with the asm instance communicating with the database. I've changed the parameters on the target database, but I'm not able to use the asm file system. From the ASM instance, I see the diskgroups mounted and available, but when I try to use them I get the errors above.

Part of your problem is that you don't answer questions that are intended to help with the diagnosis! Again, what did you install? And, also again, what OS account(s) did you use for installing the database home and the Grid Infrastructure home?
Check your version of RDBMS and ASM with
select * from v$version;

Parameters on the RDBMS instance are not relevant.
Lastly, before you copy/paste something, please read How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

OK I'll try to answer your questions and I DO appreciate you trying to help. Everything was installed and I'm using a oracle service account that has full admin rights on the server. Originally the server (which I inherited) had a 11.2.0.3 database with a 11.1 cluster and asm instance. The clusterware didn't work, when you had asked me to run crsctl check cssd, the output was that it wasn't working. So I decided to uninstall the 11.1.0 and install a grid instance of 11.2.0.3. It's a separate oracle_home. So now I have an 11.2.0.3 with a database that was restored using rman from another server, and I had an 11.2.0.3 with this oracle_home (E:\11.2.0\grid). The ASM instance was created, and I created diskgroups as well. From the ASM instance:

Right, we know the versions of your products, and they are compatibile.
But we still don't know what you installed. When you installed Grid Infrastructure, you will have been prompted for this. What did you choose? Was it, for example, "Install and Configure Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a Cluster" ?
You say that both DB and GI were installed under the same OS account, but you will also have been prompted for operating system groups. When you installed the database home, what groups did you nominate for OSDBA and OSOPER? When you installed Grid Infrastructure, what groups did you choose for ASMDBA, ASMOPER, and ASMADMIN?

I believe (and I stated the installer up) that I installed, Install Oracle Grid Infrastructure Software Only.

Is there any log that will tell me that info for sure? I'm 99% sure it was that. The other choices are install and configure oracle grid infrastructure for a cluster (and I don't have a cluster in this install). Configure Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server, or upgrade oracle grid infrastructure or oracle ASM (and I wasn't upgrading).

John,

First of all THANK YOU for trying to help. I also had a ticket open with oracle and low and behold a miracle happened. It was the sqlnet.ora had to be set to:


SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NTS)

in both sqlnet.ora's. It now works.

THANKS AGAIN.
