INVESTIGATION

1) On both nodes, it shows the cluster in “In Rolling Patch”, and the patch levels are all the same.

SOLUTIONS

$crsctl stop rollingpatch
CRS-1161: The cluster was successfully patched to patch level [3628626982].

recheck with above commands, the cluster status is changed from “In Rolling Patch” to “Normal” now.

SQL> SELECT SYS_CONTEXT('SYS_CLUSTER_PROPERTIES', 'CLUSTER_STATE') 
     FROM DUAL;

SYS_CONTEXT('SYS_CLUSTER_PROPERTIES','CLUSTER_STATE')
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Normal

Generally speaking, For “ORA-15137: The ASM cluster is in rolling patch state” issue, the below steps can be followed one after another, until the issue is resolved:

a) stop rolling patch status one node by another:

SQL>Alter system stop rolling patch;

b) stop rolling patch for whole cluster:

$crsctl stop rollingpatch

c) In case of  postpatch not complete successfully for some reason, which can also cause this issue:

— As super root user :

 $GRID_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -prepatch 
 $GRID_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -postpatch

d) For some reason, OCR is not updated with right patchlevel:

$GRID_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -prepatch 
$GI_HOME/bin/clscfg -patch
$GRID_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -postpatch

e) For some reason,  patches are available from “opatch lsinventory”, but they are missing from kfod output:

-- as super user
$GRID_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -prepatch 

-- as grid owner,
$GRID_HOME/bin/patchgen commit -pi 12345678 
$GRID_HOME/bin/patchgen commit -pi 23456789 

-- as super user
$GRID_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -postpatch
