      Hello,

      2 Node Cluster, 11.2.0.3

      in alert_+ASM1.log I found these entries,

      ... same as before, goes on writing ...

      Same in the alert file on 2. Node

      the trace file (Node1) is 5 GB !!:

      SELECT PID, PROGRAM, TRACEFILE FROM V$PROCESS;

      Located 3 voting disk(s).

      the disk rigths are : brwxrwxr-x 1 grid asmadmin

      Normal behavior for RBAL or anything wrong?

      Thanks

            Executing

            SQL +ASM1> alter diskgroup OCR_VOTE rebalance;

            worked for me.

            Regards,
            Nicolau
