Oracle user cannot write to ASM DATA diskgroup after succesful installation of grid infra in 11.2


While restoring controlfile to test environment, from filesystem or tape environment after installing grid infrastructure.

I got following errors from both RMAN  and DBCA, despite the fact that I could create directory alias in asmcmd.

RMAN> run {

2> allocate channel t1 device type ‘SBT_TAPE’

3> parms ‘ENV=(NSR_SERVER=bcksrv1, NSR_CLIENT=mydb, NSR_DATA_VOLUME_POOL=JB10)’;

4> RESTORE controlfile to ‘+DATA’ FROM ‘/tmp/ctl01.dbf’;

5> release channel t1 ;

6> }

allocated channel: t1

channel t1: SID=386 device type=SBT_TAPE

channel t1: NMO v5.0.0.0

Starting restore at 29-MAY-12

released channel: t1

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================

ORA-19504: failed to create file “+DATA”

ORA-15045: ASM file name ‘+DATA’ is not in reference form

ORA-17502: ksfdcre:5 Failed to create file +DATA

ORA-15081: failed to submit an I/O operation to a disk

ORA-19600: input file is control file  (/tmp/ctl01.dbf)

ORA-19601: output file is control file  (+DATA)


Access rights to oracle disk.


I checked the asm disks. /dev/rdsk/disk * has grid:oinstall ownership.

Grid infra home and bin has grid:oinstall, while the oracle home and bin has oracle:oinstall, as told in the MOS.

In our case, access rights on disk device files, are not 77x. As the second 7 means access to group oinstall.

I changed the access rights to 777 and it worked.
