ORA-15045: ASM file name ‘+DATA’ is not in reference form

Error Message:

ORA-00202: control file: ‘+DATA’
ORA-15045: ASM file name ‘+DATA’ is not in reference form
ORA-17502: ksfdcre:5 Failed to create file +DATA

There are permissions problem.


The following solution helped me, hope be the same for you.

[oracle@node2  ~] ls -la $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle

-r-sr-s–x 1 oracle oinstall  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin/oracle

[oracle@node2  ~] su –

[root@node2  ~] chown oracle:asmadmin  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin/oracle

[root@node2  ~] ls -la  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin/oracle

-r-xr-x–x 1 oracle asmadmin  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin/oracle

[root@node2  ~] chmod a+s  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin/oracle

[root@node2  ~] ls -la  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin/oracle

-r-sr-s–x 1 oracle asmadmin  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin/oracle


[root@node1 ~]# id oracle
uid=501(oracle) gid=500(oinstall) groups=500(oinstall),501(dba),503(asmdba),505(oper)
[root@node1 ~]# id grid
uid=500(grid) gid=500(oinstall) groups=500(oinstall),501(dba),502(asmadmin),503(asmdba),504(asmoper)

Oracle is oracle software owner and Grid user is grid software owner. So I have two different users.

    Your solving method is very nice. Technical person has understand very quickly. For nontechnical like student if we have to understand him can you have any another way?
    It’s very critical solution to change all path. But very nice.

    Access rights on disk device files, are not 777. As the second 7 means access to group oinstall.
    If i change the access rights to 777.
    What you think it will work?.

      I changed permission and it works. But my permissions are: rw-rw—-. As I think it is a default permission.

      brw-rw—- 1 grid asmadmin 8, 65 Sep 7 18:14 CRSVOL
      brw-rw—- 1 grid asmadmin 8, 17 Sep 7 18:14 DISK1
      brw-rw—- 1 grid asmadmin 8, 33 Sep 7 18:14 DISK2
      brw-rw—- 1 grid asmadmin 8, 49 Sep 7 18:14 DISK3
