Created Tuesday 09 September 2014

Problem

On a HP-UX host with VXVM/CFS in use, we got following error when starting an Oracle RAC instance:

ORA-17612: Failed to discover Oracle Disk Manager library, return value 2

Nevertheless the corresponding library and link is present:

[tarabon:dcod:/opt/oracle/database/11.2.0.4.2_01/lib]$ ll libodm*
-rw-r--r--   1 oracle     oinstall     23898 Sep 29  2013 libodm11.a

-rwxr-xr-x   1 oracle     oinstall     76344 Sep 29  2013 libodmd11.so

-r-xr-xr-x   1 root       sys         199016 Sep 11  2013 /opt/VRTSodm/lib/libodm.so

Solution

ODM pseudo filesystem was not mounted due to missing kernel module:

[tarabon:/root]# mount | grep odm

[tarabon:/root]# mount -F odm /dev/odm /dev/odm

mount: odm : Invalid argument

[tarabon:/root]# kcmodule -v odm
