Try deleting the empty disks using "crsctl delete css". I am not sure whether that will work, since the paths are empty.
Other option is to reinitialize the OCR by running root.sh, after a complete clean-up.
But make sure that the voting disk locations are set correctly by the OUI in "$ORA_CRS_HOME/install/rootconfig" script.
I ran into the samething today and figured out how to get rid of them at least on a Win 2003 SP2R2 cluster. Mine were showing 0s for the path as well so after a lot of trial and error I finally just tried:
crsctl delete css votedisk 0
And it worked... What happens is, when you have to do a -force to create extra votedisks the cluster has to be stopped on all nodes or this will happen. We were doing a totally fresh install so we played with it a little to determine this is what happened. When we stopped everything before adding votedisks using -force and cleaning up the bad ones, everything went fine.
I kind of misworded that last sentence... we:
1. Cleaned up the bad votedisks
2. Stopped the cluster on both nodes involved
3. Created the new, added votedisks using -force
And I was also able to issue the "crsctl delete css votedisk 0" twice in a row to remove both extras... Sorry for any confusion.
