Where are your OCR and voting disks located?
Thank you for replying, Liron!
This system just has Oracle Restart configured in GI, No ASM, NO RAC Clustering. Just Oracle Restart. So no OCR or voting disks exist.
Having pondered this over the weekend, I am considering just de-installing GI 22.214.171.124, and re-installing 126.96.36.199. Either that or just de-install and forget about Oracle Restart for our non-ASM systems :-)

Sorry I didn't get it before...
I didn't try to upgrade GI on standalone server without ASM. Reinstall might work and probably be the easy way. If you still want to investigate this, please look for and post the GI logfiles, maybe something there can explain this error.
Eye, I agree. But I won't bother you with logs; they all seem to move along just fine until they complain about there not being an ASM instance, then end... appreciate the offer, though!
I've opened a support ticket with Oracle (first one in years and years - have always been able to solve my issues either here or in Oracle's knowledge base). I'll post their response... Maybe we are the only ones to have bothered with GI for just Restart.
opening an SR might help.
Thanks for the appreciation, I'll be happy to hear Oracle's response.
Just a guess, but maybe worth a try...1 person found this helpful
I had a similar Problem: no ASM installed, but DBUA complains about the need to upgrade ASM prior to the DB-Upgrade.
The cause was a presumably lax coded ASM-check in Oracle's upgrade-scipt. I had some custom-settings in my SQL-Plus' glogin.sql that got me stuck. You could try to switch off all settings there that return something. For me it was "SET TIMING OFF" and "SET FEEDBACK OF".
See: Re: 10.2.0.4 -> 11.2 - dbua - fatal - db using asm as storage,... but it isn't
Much obliged for the suggestion; the issue you found with glogin.sql files is good to know, and might have hit us on some other systems here had you not brought it up, but for this particular installation, no glogins have been setup.
Oracle just picked up my support ticket...
Update: Oracle Support identified this as a new bug (11706170) to be fixed in 12.1. Workaround is to de-install GI and install the new release fresh.
