ouch: PRCA-1057 : Failed to retrieve the password file location used by ASM asm

January 22, 2015 — Leave a comment

today, on an upgraded asm/gi instance from 11.2.0.4 to 12.1.0.2 on linux x64 we faced the following situation (although the upgrade went smooth and everything was up and running):

srvctl config asm
ASM home: 
PRCA-1057 : Failed to retrieve the password file location used by ASM asm
PRCR-1097 : Resource attribute not found: PWFILE 

in 11.2.0.4 the attribute for the asm password files was not available:

srvctl modify asm -h

Modifies the configuration for ASM.

Usage: srvctl modify asm [-l ] 
    -l            Listener name
    -h                       Print usage

this came in 12.1.0.1 (together with other attributes):

srvctl modify asm -h

Modifies the configuration for ASM.

Usage: srvctl modify asm [-listener ] [-spfile ] [-pwfile ] [-diskstring ]
    -listener           Listener name
    -spfile                Server parameter file path
    -pwfile    Password file path
    -diskstring    ASM diskgroup discovery string
    -help                          Print usage

seems easy to fix:

srvctl modify asm -pwfile [SOME_PATH]/orapw+ASM 
PRCR-1097 : Resource attribute not found: CARDINALITY

no way to get the password file attribute into the GI. the workaround is to stop the complete GI, remove the ASM resource and then add it in again providing all the parameters. makes fun on a production host :)
