Oracle RAC on Linux: PRVF-5449 and PRVF-5431 when executing addNode.sh

Problem description:

Executing addNode.sh in 11.2 results in PRVF-5449 and PRVF-5431 if Voting Disks are located on Oracle ASM Disks:

Checking Oracle Cluster Voting Disk configuration...
 
ERROR:
PRVF-5449 : Check of Voting Disk location "ORCL:GRID01(ORCL:GRID01)" failed on the following nodes:
Check failed on nodes:
        racn02
 
        racn02:No such file or directory
 
ERROR:
PRVF-5449 : Check of Voting Disk location "ORCL:GRID02(ORCL:GRID02)" failed on the following nodes:
Check failed on nodes:
        racn02
 
        racn02:No such file or directory
 
ERROR:
PRVF-5449 : Check of Voting Disk location "ORCL:GRID03(ORCL:GRID03)" failed on the following nodes:
Check failed on nodes:
        racn02
 
        racn02:No such file or directory
 
PRVF-5431 : Oracle Cluster Voting Disk configuration check failed
Time zone consistency check passed
 
 
 
[grid@racn01 bin]$

Although the Oracle ASM Disks are available on the node to add:

[root@racn02 ~]# service oracleasm listdisks | grep GRID
GRID01
GRID02
GRID03
[root@racn02 ~]#

Cause:

addNode.sh is checking Oracle ASM disks incorrectly and will cancel the node addition for Voting Devices on ASM disks.

Problem resolution:

Check manually if the Oracle ASM Disks are available on the nodes to add:

[root@racn02 ~]# service oracleasm listdisks | grep GRID
GRID01
GRID02
GRID03
[root@racn02 ~]#

If the voting disk locations check was the only one that failed, use the environment variable IGNORE_PREADDNODE_CHECKS and rerun addNode.sh. Otherwise resolve the other errors first before continuing.

Example usage of IGNORE_PREADDNODE_CHECKS:

[grid@racn01 bin]$ export IGNORE_PREADDNODE_CHECKS=Y
[grid@racn01 bin]$ ./addNode.sh "CLUSTER_NEW_NODES={racn02}" "CLUSTER_NEW_VIRTUAL_HOSTNAMES={racn02-vip}"
