Missing or Corrupted Spfile in ASM instance in Rac

Introduction:

Old saying is , always expect the unexpected, well  this time this was another proof of that. During patching of an 8 node cluster on the first node we came across 2 issues , both requiring a work around. Issue one was  that after applying January 2019 Cluster did not start. This workaround is not part of this note btw. The second issue was that once we had the first Workaround in place the asm instance on the first node would not start. This note is explaining the steps followed to create a new spfile for the ASM instance(s) in a rac cluster.

General information:

This was the scenario where we found ourselves in: Patching in a rolling way had started on the  first node with January 2019 on 12.2 Oracle (GI and RDBMS) the first node was patched but crs would not start ( and hmm never liked opatchauto a lot 2 b honest). Together with Oracle support a work around was provided  but after that the ASM instance still would not start. During compare of environments it showed one very significant  memory setting on this cluster. Maybe this would have been MEMORY_*  and we are using hugepages on that cluster)  that prevented asm from starting once the patching  on the first node completed .

As a work around we created a pfile and once the cluster on node one was up we started the asm instance with the  pfile ( which was altered by me).

However we could no longer update the spfile for the other asm instances since oracle told us that in a rolling upgrade mode  you cannot make changes to the spfile . That meant that on all 8 Nodes we performed the patching , and once crs was up we had to start the asm with a copy of the init.ora  we used on 1st node too. In our case 8 nodes with a local copy of the init.ora which did not make us happy at all. That however brought us to below scenario where you need to bring  the asm back to using an spfile .

Important note: Since oracle 11.2  the GPNP profile is the key for such change !!!!

From old days , came up with below scenario to create a pfile,  alter that file to meet your needs and bring that as a spfile for the asm instance :

Scenario

  • Could be used with a missing spfile  – or  corrupted .
  • With an existing spfile with wrong settings , but where  you cannot alter since you started  patching already ( spfile updates are prohibited in rolling upgrade scenario ) ,  so maybe best practice is to analyse spfile before.
  • Important message: Scenario  has the requirement that the FULL cluster stack is down and you will work with ONE node only!!

#### With spget you can check current location of spfile  in asmcmd.

ASMCMD [+] > spget

+VOTE/mysrvr18cl/ASMPARAMETERFILE/registry.253.978015605

#### created and altered the pfile on the first node. ( and copied it to all other nodes during the workaround).

oracle@mysrvr1dr:/app/grid/product/12201/grid/dbs []# cd /app/oracle/admin/+ASM1/pfile

oracle@mysrvr1dr:/app/oracle/admin/+ASM1/pfile []# ls -ltr

total 4

-rw-r–r–. 1 oracle dba 2433 Feb  8 09:23 initASM.ora

##### starting  cluster  1st attempt (recalled that the cluster needed 2 b in some part of restricted mode for that, so all of cluster was stopped , then below command was issued). But Oracle showed mercy , telling to use the correct syntax:

mysrvr1dr:root:/app/grid/product/12201/grid/bin $ ./crsctl start crs restrict

Parse error:

  ‘restrict’ is an invalid argument

Usage:

  crsctl start crs [-excl [-nocrs | -cssonly]] | [-wait | -waithas | -nowait] | [-noautostart]

     Start OHAS on this server

where

     -excl        Start Oracle Clusterware in exclusive mode

     -nocrs       Start Oracle Clusterware in exclusive mode without starting CRS

     -nowait      Do not wait for OHAS to start

     -wait        Wait until startup is complete and display all progress and status messages

     -waithas     Wait until startup is complete and display OHASD progress and status messages

     -cssonly     Start only CSS

     -noautostart Start only OHAS

## Then started cluster in exclusive mode ,  that failed too  btw since it tried to start the asm instance, which was still holding the original spfile with the incorrect information.
