Solution of ORA-39511: Start of CRS resource for instance ‘242’ failed with error :[CRS-5702: Resource ‘ora.asm’ is already running on ‘abc005’
How problem hit:
While trying to start up a new instance manually in order to start duplicating one database, I was getting the below error:
SQL> startup nomount pfile=initabc1.ora
ORA-39511: Start of CRS resource for instance ‘242’ failed with error:[CRS-5702: Resource ‘ora.asm’ is already running on ‘abc005’
CRS-0223: Resource ‘ora.asm’ has placement error.
This is on a 19c database setup on a cluster environment with ASM.
Before I issue this command I manually dropped a database having the same name abc, I didn’t use dbca for this job because I had a problem login to the server with VNC, so I took the easy approach and dropped it manually and deleted all its files under ASM groups.
Solution and Workaround:
It’s always recommended to drop the database using DBCA, especially on a cluster/Oracle Restart environment. This will maintain to clean up all database resources on the server and avoid having the above error.
For my scenario, because my job was not complete, I had to remove the remaining database cluster resources manually using the following commands:
1- Remove the database and its instances resources from OCR:
srvctl remove instance -d abc -i abc1
srvctl remove instance -d abc -i abc2
srvctl remove database -d abc
2- Remove all the database files inside ASM including datafiles, redo log files, controlfiles, password file, spfile from asmcmd console.
3- Remove the database entry from /etc/oratab
4- Make sure there are no resources belong to the dropped database:
crsctl stat res -p
