RE: convert ASM to single-instance

Bobak, Mark



Hi Jeremy,


Even in a single instance installation, ASM needs to connect to cssd.  If that’s not running, you’ll get the 29701 when trying to start your ASM instance.  From memory, this runs from /etc/inittab, if you’re on Linux (or, probably any other flavor of unix.)


On my RHEL box, I’ve got:

h1:35:respawn:/etc/init.d/init.cssd run >/dev/null 2>&1 </dev/null


in /etc/inittab, and it has to come before the ‘rc 3’ runlevel.

Subject: convert ASM to single-instance


anyone know how to convert ASM back to single-instance?  i've relinked with rac_off, removed the clusterware with rootdelete.sh, triple-checked init+ASM.ora (no mention of cluster_database), and rebooted for good measure - but every time I try to start ASM, I still get this error:


SQL> startup
ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Manager

couldn't find anything on metalink, in the docs, or on the net...  but maybe i've missed something?
