RAC Failure at Final Check of Oracle CRS Stack

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonJune 19, 2015

Question:  When running my during a RCA install I get this error:

Failure at final check of oracle CRS stack. 10

How do I fix this script failure?

Answer:  There are several books that can assist you in a RAC install.

The "Failure at final check of oracle CRS stack. 10" is addressed in detail  at MOSC:

  •  MOSC Note 725878.1 title " failed at Failure at final check of Oracle CRS stack 10"   - Also see MOSC Note: 344994.1.
  • The "Failure at final check of CRS stack" with VMware on non-OCFS disks (raw devices) is addressed in MOSC  465001.1.  

This Failure at final check of CRS stack error is always a security issue, most likely a firewall issue (policy) or a problem with the directory permissions.  

To diagnose this "Failure at final check of oracle CRS stack. 10", try these steps:

  •  Make sure you are connect with root privileges.
  •  Ensure that you can ping each RAC node.
  • Make sure that the CRS is running.
  • See your logs /var/log/messages, log file and tmp/crsctl.* files to see specific errors  
  • Run "ocrcheck" to ensure that  you can use OCR/VOTE on the same disk from all nodes:

    root> ocrcheck

    Status of Oracle Cluster Registry is as follows :
    Version : 2
    Total space (kbytes) : 248784
    Used space (kbytes) : 5400
    Available space (kbytes) : 243384
    ID : 519182535
    Device/File Name : /dev/file/raw1
    Device/File integrity check succeeded
    Cluster registry integrity check succeeded
  • In UNIX/Linux, check your interconnect (UDP) and check IPTABLES:

    # iptables -F
    # iptables -L

Follow up from original inquiry:

The solution was shared disk on my VMServer was not properly configured. Somehow the disk locking was not disable by setting to "FALSE". I corrected this and it worked perfectly!
