Ocrconfig Failed With Error PROT-30 PROC-50

Try to add OCR into  new diskgroup ‘+OCR_VOTE’, and get below errors:

# ./ocrconfig -add OCR_VOTE
PROT-30: The Oracle Cluster Registry location to be added is not usable
PROC-50: The Oracle Cluster Registry location to be added is inaccessible on nodes racnode1.

Check crsd.trc log, the error is very obvious that  “OCR file/disk OCR_VOTE  No such file or directory”.

Checked physical disk and ASM disk are all good.

Finally check back the command and find ‘+’ is missing from diskgroup name.

# ./ocrconfig -add +OCR_VOTE

It is recommended to put OCR, Voting File and ASM SPILE onto a dedicated diskgroup.

This exercise is to move everything from old OCR/VOTING diskgroup OCR_VOTE  to a new diskgroup OCR_VOTE2 in
