ASM for single-instance

Hello.

I installed GI 11.2.0.3. In order not run setup with unpatched GI, I used "software only" installation. Then I installed GI PSU with "OPatch auto". PSU was installed with messages indicating failing of stop|start clusterware (file 'crsctl' was not found). Is it normal behaviour ?
Then I used asmca, but it failed because GI was not configured. In GI documentation written how to configure GI for cluster (crs/config/config.sh), but no info for standalone server. Should I reinstall GI using "standalone server" installation and only after this install PSU ?

    Hi,

    Could you show us your user's env parameter.
    Has ORA_CRS_HOME been set ?

    Regards,

    Yes. Oracle uses different versions of binaries for standalone server and for cluster. crsctl is missing until you configure GI.

    You can configure GI with following command as root :
    $GRID_HOME/perl/bin/perl -I$GRID_HOME/perl/lib -I$GRID_HOME/crs/install $GRID_HOME/crs/install/roothas.pl
