oracle 10g 2 node rac cluster 1 node wont start ora-15124 running on linux oel 5.2
I have a test 2 node rac cluster using asm with omf enabled for storage with ocfs2 as my cluster config.
The problem I am having is I can start node1 up no problems but when I start up node 2 I get the error
ora-15124: ASM file name '+DATA/ifsl_rac/controlfile/current.1082.917777031. +DATA/ifsl_rac/controlfile/current.1007.917777371' contains an invalid alias name
my pfile points to the spfile exactly like it does in node1 so I cannot understand why this is trying to use this. Plus the controlfiles are not named like this. If I create a pfile and use that to open the instance it opens no problems.
Just to add I have restored this database and previously the controlfiles where named as above but they have been removed.
I cannot see where node2 is picking up this config from.
In my opinion, problem could be with wrong spfile in ASM or
Can you please check if by any chance you have multiple spfiles using asmcmd ?
It could very well be in a folder named UNKNOWN for DB NAME.
Please set spfile path for database using
srvctl modify database -d <db_unique_name> -p <spfile>
Since another node is coming up properly, we can safely assume that all required files are present and are in a good state.
