RAC 11.2 - ADR on ACFS
Date: Mon, 20 Feb 2012 21:16:56 +0100
has anyone successfully implemented an ADR repository for a database on ACFS (via diagnostic_dest or ORACLE_BASE)? The section Use Case Scenarios for ACFS in the ACFS Technical Overview and Deployment Guide states:
The following are use case scenarios for General Purpose ACFS filesystem:
• Automatic Diagnostic Repository (ADR). A filesystem for diagnostics logging area. Having a
distinct filesystem for diagnostic logs provides a more easily managed container rather than
placing this within ORACLE_BASE or ORACLE_HOME locations [...]
We're not able to make this work with neither GFS, nor CRS managed ACFS.
In both cases
at least one of the instances doesn't start automatically after restarting the entire stack (crsctl stop/start crs) - it seems that crs is trying to start some instances too quickly ... (invalid value for diagnostic_dest: the specified path doesn't exists). I'm still investigating, there are too many logs to check :).
