Hi Experts,

I have just upgraded my 2node RAC database from 10.2.0.4 to 11.2.0.1 and I'm new to 11g RAC.After up gradation whenever I'm trying to shutdown ASM instance I'm getting error.
[root@RAC1 bin]# ./srvctl stop database -d RAC -o immediate
[root@RAC1 bin]# ./crsctl status resource -t

relocating 'ora.DATA.dg', but the force option was not specified


I was just googling for above error and found that this error may occur if my ocr and voting disk were residing on ASM then it will not allow me to stop the asm and I should use (Check below links)

crsctl stop crs

But I have verified my ocr file and voting disk are not residing on ASM.
[root@RAC1 bin]# ./ocrcheck

Just wanted to know is this the normal behavior of oracle 11g or am I missing something? If this is normal behavior the what is the option avilable to stop asm instance without using force option?

Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Hi,

Just want to tell you about some concepts for ASM in oracle 11gR2(If you already don't know)

In Oracle 11.1 and earlier, If your database resides on ASM then DBAs used to create a dependency between local ASM and database instance. So that the ASM instance was started together with the RDBMS instance when this was required.

From 11g R2 onwards, ASM disk groups are now registered as resources within Grid Infrastructure and the dependency has been redefined, means the dependency is already set in resource definition. This dependency is created with one or more ASM disk groups.

For ex.
-------
[oracle@london1 ~]$ crsctl status resource ora.prod.db -p
NAME=ora.prod.db
TYPE=ora.database.type
ACL=owner:oracle:rwx,pgrp:oinstall:rwx,other::r--
[...]
SPFILE=+DATA/prod/spfileprod.ora
START_DEPENDENCIES=hard(ora.DATA.dg) [...] pullup(ora.DATA.dg)
STOP_DEPENDENCIES=hard(intermediate:ora.asm,shutdown:ora.DATA.dg)


You can see that a start dependency has been created for the disk group DATA, which will also be started if needed as part of the database start. Similarly, a stop dependency exists for the same disk group. The hard dependency at "ora.asm" shows that the database must be shutdown before stopping the ASM.

Note that not only database, but other resources may also have dependency on the ASM, like ACFS. So if you use "force" option to execute the stop command on ASM, still some components won't stop, due to too many dependencies on other resources.

So, to stop ASM in 11gR2, "crsctl stop crs" or "crsctl stop cluster" is the only option to stop the ASM, since it first stop all the dependent resources the stop the ASM.

So, I think in your case, there must be some resources which depends on ASM, like your database files would be on ASM.

Thanks a Lot Pankaj. Your explanation really helps me a lot. I have checked the dependencies of all the resource one by one Smile and able to stop asm successfully.

Also realized that above step might not help other to stop ASM because they might have separate dependencies (For example: If there is another disk group called DATA1, then its required to stop the resources related to that resource as well.)
