    How to turn ASM disks from Member to Candidates

    878722
      Oracle Database 11.2.0.2 RAC

      IBM AIX 6.1


      Hi guys,

      I am facing one problem while reinstalling RAC Database on 2 nodes.

      Earlier we had RAC database configured on these nodes. But due to some storage level corruption we had to remove the software.

      No srvctl or dbca command was working. All those binaries were corrupted. So had to remove Oracle software using rm -rf command.

      Now while trying to reinstall it shows, those ASM disk groups are already members of diskgroup. And those disks cannot be selected for the Diskgroup we are trying to create. This is probably due to not being deinstalled properly.

      How to overcome this issue ?
