    Error adding voting disk on grid installation

    CoBy
      Hello together,

      I am installing Oracle Grid Infratructure 11.2.0.3 on OEL 6.3
      I reached the final step, running the root.sh. It succsessfully started the services but then I got this error:

      Failed to create voting files on disk group CR.
      Change to configuration failed, but was successfully rolled back.
      CRS-4000: Command Replace failed, or completed with errors.
      Voting file add failed
      Failed to add voting disks at /opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/crsconfig_lib.pm line 6780.
      +/opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/perl/bin/perl -I/opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/perl/lib -I/opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/crs/install /opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/rootcrs.pl execution failed+

      CR Diskgroup is configured using oracleasm:

      oracleasm createdisk CR /dev/sdb1

      /dev/sdb1 is a partition and has been created ot the LUN /dev/sdb using fdisk.

      Any idea what might be wrong? Any answers are highly appreciated. Thanks!

      Here is part of logfile of the root.sh - tool. Meanwhile I tried deinstalling the clusterware and cleaning up, then I verified the server configuration with cluvfy and all was OK. I used also another Disk Group name. Same problem..
