Stale file handle on RAC Database Binaries

Hi Forum

I have a two node cluster running on Red Hat Linuk 6.

On the cluster I have several databases running

I use NetApp as my primary storage and mount NetApp volumes using NFS

I do not use ASM

 

i.e.

Database1, Database2, Database3 and Database4.

 

I recently removed Database2 from the cluster.

As a final step for the Linux server I went to unmount the volumes associated with Database2.

All unmounted fine - apart from the BINARIES associated with Database2

 

When I try and unmount this I and told that the volume is BUSY. I also get several STALE FILE HANDLE messages (output from fuser -muv)

Cannot stat file /proc/8717/fd/95: Stale file handle

Cannot stat file /proc/12551/fd/95: Stale file handle

Cannot stat file /proc/16003/fd/95: Stale file handle

Cannot stat file /proc/16539/fd/95: Stale file handle

Cannot stat file /proc/17433/fd/95: Stale file handle

Cannot stat file /proc/17757/fd/95: Stale file handle

Cannot stat file /proc/23977/fd/95: Stale file handle

Cannot stat file /proc/23979/fd/95: Stale file handle

Cannot stat file /proc/23981/fd/95: Stale file handle

 

If I then take one of the prcoesses above (e.g. 24114) and see what this process is, it tells me that it is :

 

ora_rcbg_DATABASE1

 

So nothing to do with the database associated with the binaries - but a completely different database which has its own Oracle Home / Binaries.

Any ideas how this can be?

Its a really puzzler for me and the Linux Adamin guys I work with

Thanks
