libcap.so.1 not found whilst running root.sh for grid infrastructure

Whilst installing grid infrastructure I hit and running the root.sh script I got a libcap.so.1 not found. It is correct, I have v2 of libcap not v1. I've read linking libcap.so.1 to libcap.so.2 or copying it works and I can do this but can I just rerun the root.sh script again or do I have to back out what it did in some way first? Perhaps there is another way to get libcap.so.1 also?

    It is probably bad form to answer your own question but:

    I copied libcap.so.2 to libcap.so.1 and ran rootcrs.pl -decong -force then reran the root.sh again.

    So that got me further.

    But then:

    Adding daemon to inittab
    CRS-4124: Oracle High Availability Services startup failed
    CRS-4000: start failed. or completed with errors
    ohasd failed to start: Inappropriate ioctl for device
    ohasd failed to start at /home/oracle.app./11.2.0/grid/crs/install/rootcrs.pl line 443

    Hi Martin,

    Did it finally work for you? I got a fix on OEL 6.3 (x86_64) for 11.2.0.3 Grid Infra.
    This is what I did:

    1. Cleanup the failed configuration:

    # $GRID_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.pl -deconfig -force

    2. Open one window and run this "dd" command from there:

    # dd if=/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd of=/dev/null bs=1024 count=1

    Keep on running this in this terminal until "/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd" gets created by root.sh in next step. Once created, this command will never come out.
    For example,

    [root@labrac1 grid]# dd if=/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd of=/dev/null bs=1024 count=1
    dd: opening `/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd': No such file or directory
    [root@labrac1 grid]# dd if=/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd of=/dev/null bs=1024 count=1
    dd: opening `/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd': No such file or directory
    [root@labrac1 grid]# dd if=/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd of=/dev/null bs=1024 count=1
    dd: opening `/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd': No such file or directory
    [root@labrac1 grid]# dd if=/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd of=/dev/null bs=1024 count=1
    dd: opening `/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd': No such file or directory
    [root@labrac1 grid]# dd if=/var/tmp/.oracle/npohasd of=/dev/null bs=1024 count=1

    <<< Command hangs here as soon as root.sh from step# 3 creates the file >>>



    3. Now, run root.sh:

    # $GRID_HOME/root.sh
    Running Oracle 11g root.sh script...
    ... ... ...
    ... ... ...
    The inventory is located at /u01/app/oraInventory
    'UpdateNodeList' was successful.

    4. Add the same command to "/etc/init.d/ohasd" script to apply this fix (dd command) to ensure smooth start of HAS across machine reboots.

    # cp /etc/init.d/ohasd /etc/init.d/ohasd.orig
    # vi /etc/init.d/ohasd

    79 $LOGERR "Oracle HA daemon is enabled for autostart."
    80 ########################################################

    89 /u01/app/11.2.0/grid/bin/crsctl start has &

    Hope it works for others.

    Thanks.

    Hi Luis,

    Sorry! I was out for a while. For me, it was near the 79th/80th line as I have shown above. That is between line:

    *$LOGERR "Oracle HA daemon is enabled for autostart."*

    and

    */u01/app/11.2.0/grid/bin/crsctl start has &*


    However, this pain is gone with 11.2.0.3 Grid Infra installation which I did very recently.

    Thanks,
    Jaydeep
