Moving Voting Disk


Notes: 
  • crsctl votedisk commands must be run as root
  • If the new voting disk is on cluster file system, then it needs to be touched with proper ownership and permission before they can be added.
  • If the old voting disk is on cluster file system, it needs to be deleted manually after crsctl delete css votedisk command.
  • The voting disk must be owned by the oracle user, in the oinstall group, and must have permissions set to 644. In 10g provide at least 20 MB disk space for the voting disk. In 11g provide at least 280 MB disk space for the voting disk.

  1. Shutdown the Oracle Clusterware (crsctl stop crs as root) on all nodes before making any modification to the voting disk. Determine the current voting disk location using:
     # crsctl query css votedisk
  2. To move a Voting Disk, provide the full path including file name:
# crsctl add css votedisk <NEW_LOCATION> -force
 # crsctl delete css votedisk <OLD_LOCATION> -force
  1. After modifying the voting disk, start the Oracle Clusterware stack on all nodes
# crsctl start crs
  1. Verify the voting disk location using
# crsctl query css votedisk
