    Can we remove a OS user after RAC decomission

    Venkat.S

      Hi All,

      I have a situation that we decommissioned a RAC environment long back and now I am trying to remove the user corresponding to that RAC environment at OS level.

      here is the steps followed.

       

      ./crsctl delete serverpool ora.EBL

      ./srvctl remove listener -l LISTENER_EBL_L192


      I able to delete serverpool and remove listener, but ,I am not able to restart the CRS services with below error,


      2013-08-21 18:46:20.680: [  CRSSEC][1462204736] {1:61647:2} Exception: OwnerEntry construction failed to retrieve user id by name with ACL string: owner:eblval:rwx and error: 1

      2013-08-21 18:46:20.680: [  CRSSEC][1462204736] {1:61647:2} Exception: ACL entry creation failed for: owner:eblval:rwx

       

      Can we remove the user corresponding to the decommissioned RAC environment, I have 2 node cluster and another RAC environment is running on the same nodes.

      it is EBS - RAC environment and CRS is 11.2.0 and DB is 10.2.0.4 with 11.5.10.2 EBS.

       

      Please review my case and advise.

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Venkat

          Hi Venkat,

           

          You have provided commands which have executed successfully, pls provide the command that you are using which errors out >?

           

          As you have another RAC instance running on the same nodes with applications being configured, suggest not to touch the OS users. Please consult with oracle /SR and take careful measures, before performing any actions.

           

          Thanks

          Rajiv.

            Thanks Rajiv for the information,

             

            I will open the SR and have Oracle blessings on the same.

            here the steps  used.

             

            1) Brought down the CRS and removed the user eblval

             

            2) rebooted the server, which will restart the crs services

            3) verified the CRS

            [root@l191 bin]# ./crsctl start crs

            CRS-4640: Oracle High Availability Services is already active

            CRS-4000: Command Start failed, or completed with errors.

             

            log file entry crsd.log

            4) Now recreated the user and able to bring up the CRS with no issues

             

             

            Thanks,

            Venkat
