I am building a RAC cluster on IBM pSeries hardware running AIX 6.1. The ASM LUNs for storing the vote disk and OCR (as well as all future db files) are on NetApp storage. I have built RAC clusters before, using IBM storage, but this is my first time with NetApp storage.
I ran cluvfy for stage precrsinst, and that report came back without errors. But I don't believe that cluvfy actually attempts to access the ASM storage, since the utility does not know the ASM disk discovery path. Anyway...
During the OUI installation pre-checks, I received this error message: PRVF-5150 Path /dev/usasdirvg801_asm_quo_01 is not a valid path on all nodes.
Inital searches on MOS led me to note 1267569.1, but that applies only to Linux.
Has anyone else encountered this error message while installing Grid Infrastructure on AIX? Any and all advice will be considered and is appreciated.
Try use kfod utility:
Note: Keep in mind that the Grid Infrastructure software does not need to be installed to use kfod, since kfod is located as well on the staging area where you uncompressed the Grid Infrastructure software, as the following example:
Where: "/stage" is the directory where I uncompressed the source software for the Grid Infrastructure software.
And put here :
Thank you for that reminder! I have not needed to use kfod very much in the past. I did as you suggested, and kfod was able to detect the disks from all cluster nodes. Based on that, I took a calculated risk and decided to ignore the warning message and proceed.
My cluster has been built and appears to be working normally.
Thank you for the advice!
