E Oracle Clusterware Control (CRSCTL) Utility Reference

This appendix contains reference information for the Oracle Clusterware Control (CRSCTL) utility.

Note:

Do not use CRSCTL commands on Oracle entities (such as resources, resource types, and server pools) that have names beginning with ora unless you are directed to do so by My Oracle Support. The Server Control utility (SRVCTL) is the correct utility to use on Oracle entities.

This appendix includes the following topics:

CRSCTL Overview

CRSCTL is an interface between you and Oracle Clusterware, parsing and calling Oracle Clusterware APIs for Oracle Clusterware objects.

CRSCTL provides cluster-aware commands with which you can perform check, start, and stop operations on the cluster. You can run these commands from any node in the cluster on another node in the cluster, or on all nodes in the cluster, depending on the operation.

You can use CRSCTL commands to perform several operations on Oracle Clusterware, such as:

  • Starting and stopping Oracle Clusterware resources

  • Enabling and disabling Oracle Clusterware daemons

  • Checking the health of the cluster

  • Managing resources that represent third-party applications

  • Integrating Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) with Oracle Clusterware to provide failure isolation support and to ensure cluster integrity

  • Debugging Oracle Clusterware components

This section includes the following topics:

Clusterized (Cluster Aware) Commands

You can run clusterized commands on one node to perform operations on another node in the cluster. These are referred to as remote operations. This simplifies administration because, for example, you no longer have to log in to each node to check the status of the Oracle Clusterware on all of your nodes.

Clusterized commands are completely operating system independent; they rely on the OHASD (Oracle High Availability Services daemon). If this daemon is running, then you can perform remote operations, such as the starting, stopping, and checking the status of remote nodes.

Clusterized commands include the following:

CRSCTL Operational Notes

Information about using the CRSCTL command-line interface.

Usage Information

  • The CRSCTL utility is located in the Grid_home/bin directory. To run CRSCTL commands, type in crsctl at the operating system prompt followed by the command and arguments, as shown in the following example:

    crsctl stop crs
    
  • There are three categories of CRSCTL commands:

    • Those that you use in either the Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) environment or in the Oracle Restart environment

    • Those that you use in the Oracle RAC environment, only

    • Those that you use in the Oracle Restart environment, only

  • Many CRSCTL commands use the -f parameter to force the command to run and ignore any checks.

    For example, if you specify the force parameter for the crsctl stop resource command on a resource that is running and has dependent resources that are also running, then the force parameter omits the error message and instead stops or relocates all the dependent resources before stopping the resource you reference in the command.

  • Do not use versions of CRSCTL earlier than 12c release 1 (12.1) to manage Oracle Clusterware 12c.

Filters

You can use filters to narrow down Oracle Clusterware entities upon which a CRSCTL command operates, as follows:

  • Simple filters are attribute-value pairs with an operator.

  • Operators must be surrounded by spaces, as shown in the examples.

  • You can combine simple filters into expressions called expression filters using Boolean operators.

Supported filter operators are:

  • =
  • >
  • <
  • !=
  • co: Contains
  • st: Starts with
  • en: Ends with

Supported Boolean operators are AND and OR.

Examples of filters are:

  • TYPE = type1

  • ((TYPE = type1) AND (CHECK_INTERVAL > 50))

  • (TYPE = type1) AND ((CHECK_INTERVAL > 30) OR (AUTO_START co never))

  • NAME en network.res

  • TYPE st ora.db

Using CRSCTL Help

To print the help information for CRSCTL, use the following command:

crsctl -help

If you want help for a specific command, such as start, then enter the command and append -help to the end, as shown in the following example:

crsctl start -help

You can also use the abbreviations -h or -? (this parameter functions in Linux, UNIX, and Windows environments) instead of -help.

Dual Environment CRSCTL Commands

Use these commands in either the Oracle RAC or the Oracle Restart environments.

The commands listed in this section manage the Oracle Clusterware resources in both Oracle RAC and Oracle Restart environments.

crsctl check css

Checks the status of Cluster Synchronization Services.

This command is most often used when Oracle Automatic Storage Management (Oracle ASM) is installed on the local server.

Syntax

crsctl check css

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
CRS-4529: Cluster Synchronization Services is online

crsctl check evm

Checks the status of the Event Manager.

Syntax

crsctl check evm

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
CRS-4533: Event Manager is online

crsctl get hostname

Retrieves the host name of the local server.

Syntax

crsctl get hostname

Example

Oracle Clusterware returns the host name of the local server:
$ crsctl get hostname

node2

crsctl add resource

Registers a resource to be managed by Oracle Clusterware.

A resource can be an application process, a database, a service, a listener, and so on.

Syntax

crsctl add resource resource_name -type resource_type [-group group_name [-file file_path |
   -attr "attribute_name=attribute_value[,...]"]
  [-i] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-2 crsctl add resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name

Specify a short, descriptive name for the resource.

-type resource_type

Specify the type of resource that you are adding preceded by the -type flag.

-group group_name

Specify a resource group to which you want to add the resource.

-file file_path

Path name (either absolute or relative) for a text file containing line-delimited attribute name-value pairs that define the resource.

-attr "attribute_name=attribute_value[,...]"

You can specify attributes for a resource you are adding in two different ways:

  • Following the -attr flag, you can specify one or more comma-delimited attribute name-value pairs enclosed in double quotations marks (""). For example:

    -attr "CHECK_INTERVAL=30,START_TIMEOUT=25"

    Some attributes can have multiple values. In those cases, separate the values with a space and enclose the list of values in single quotation marks. For example:

    -attr "SERVER_POOL_NAMES=
    'ora.pool1 ora.pool2',START_TIMEOUT=25"
  • Additionally, you can specify attribute values for resource instances with a particular cardinality value, and with a particular degree value. This method can be useful for applications that are tied to a particular server. Following the -attr flag, the syntax is as follows:

    attribute_name{@SERVERNAME(server_name)
    [@DEGREEID(did)] | @CARDINALITYID(cid)
    [@DEGREEID(did)]}=attribute_value

    If you specify the @SERVERNAME(server_name) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resource instances residing on the server you specify.

    Alternatively, if you specify the @CARDINALITYID(cid) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resource instances with a specific cardinality ID (cid).

    Optionally, you can combine the @DEGREEID(did) syntax with either the SERVERNAME or CARDINALITYID syntax, or both, to limit the attribute value to resources with the specific DEGREE.

    Examples:

    CHECK_INTERVAL@SERVERNAME(node1)=45
    STOP_TIMEOUT@CARDINALITYID(2)=65
    STOP_TIMEOUT@SERVERNAME(node1)@DEGREEID(2)=65
    STOP_TIMEOUT@CARDINALITYID(3)@DEGREEID(2)=65
-i

If you specify -i, then CRSCTL returns an error if processing this command requires waiting for Oracle Clusterware to unlock the resource or its dependents. Sometimes, Oracle Clusterware locks resources or other objects to prevent commands from interfering with each other.

-f

Use the force parameter:

  • To add a resource that has dependencies on other resources that do not yet exist. The force parameter overrides checks that would prevent a command from being completed.

  • To add a resource if the resource has hard dependencies on other resources and the owner of the resources does not execute permissions on one or more of the dependencies. If you do not specify the force parameter in this case, an error displays.

  • To add resources of application type because you may need to move servers into the Generic server pool. If the servers currently host resources that must be stopped, then the force parameter is required.

Usage Notes

  • Both the resource_name and -type resource_type parameters are required. You can create an associated resource type using the crsctl add type command.

  • Any user can create a resource but only clusterware administrators can create resources of type local_resource or resources of type cluster_resource that have SERVER_POOLS=*.

    Once a resource is defined, its ACL controls who can perform particular operations with it. The Oracle Clusterware administrator list is no longer relevant.

    On Windows, a member of the Administrators group has full control over everything.

    See Also:

    "crsctl setperm resource" for more information about setting ACLs

  • If an attribute value for an attribute name-value pair contains commas, then the value must be enclosed in single quotation marks ('').

  • Following is an example of an attribute file:

    PLACEMENT=favored
    HOSTING_MEMBERS=node1 node2 node3
    RESTART_ATTEMPTS@CARDINALITYID(1)=0
    RESTART_ATTEMPTS@CARDINALITYID(2)=0
    FAILURE_THRESHOLD@CARDINALITYID(1)=2
    FAILURE_THRESHOLD@CARDINALITYID(2)=4
    FAILURE_INTERVAL@CARDINALITYID(1)=300
    FAILURE_INTERVAL@CARDINALITYID(2)=500
    CHECK_INTERVAL=2
    CARDINALITY=2
    
  • Do not use this command for any resources with names that begin with ora because these resources are Oracle resources.

Examples

Example E-1 Example 1

To register a VIP as a resource with Oracle Clusterware:

$ crsctl add resource app.appvip -type app.appvip.type -attr "RESTART_ATTEMPTS=2,
START_TIMEOUT=100,STOP_TIMEOUT=100,CHECK_INTERVAL=10,
USR_ORA_VIP=172.16.0.0,
START_DEPENDENCIES=hard(ora.net1.network)pullup(ora.net1.network),
STOP_DEPENDENCIES=hard(ora.net1.network)"

Example E-2 Example 2

To register a resource based on the test_type1 resource type:

$ crsctl add resource r1 -type test_type1 -attr "PATH_NAME=/tmp/r1.txt"
$ crsctl add resource r1 -type test_type1 -attr "PATH_NAME=/tmp/r2.txt"

Example E-3 Example 3

To register a Samba server resource of the generic_application resource type, using the EXECUTABLE_NAMES attribute:

# crsctl add resource my_samba -type generic_application -attr
"EXECUTABLE_NAMES=smbd,START_PROGRAM='/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start',
STOP_PROGRAM='/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb stop'"

Example E-4 Example 4

To register a DNS server of the generic_application resource type, using the EXECUTABLE_NAMES attribute:

# crsctl add resource my_dns -type generic_application -attr
"EXECUTABLE_NAMES=named,START_PROGRAM='/etc/rc.d/init.d/named start',
STOP_PROGRAM='/etc/rc.d/init.d/named stop'"

Example E-5 Example 5

To register an Apache web server of the generic_application resource type using the PID_FILES attribute:

# crsctl add resource my_apache -type generic_application -attr
"START_PROGRAM='/usr/sbin/httpd -k start',STOP_PROGRAM='/usr/sbin/httpd -k stop',
PID_FILES=/etc/httpd/run/httpd.pid"

Example E-6 Example 6

To register an application of generic_application resource type using environment variables:

# crsctl add resource my_app -type generic_application -attr
"START_PROGRAM='/opt/my_app start', EXECUTABLE_NAMES=my_app,
ENVIRONMENT_VARS='USE_NETAPP=no,USE_BACKUP=yes,CLEAN_ON_KILL=yes'"

crsctl delete resource

Removes resources from the Oracle Clusterware configuration.

Syntax

crsctl delete resource {"resource_name [...]" | -w "filter"} [-i] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-3 crsctl delete resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name

Specify one or more resource names that you want to delete. Multiple resources must be space-delimited and enclosed in double quotation marks ("").

-w "filter"

Specify a resource filter that Oracle Clusterware uses to limit the number of resources evaluated for deletion. The filter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (""). Examples of resource filters include:

  • "TYPE == cluster_resource": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate only resources of cluster_resource type

  • "CHECK_INTERVAL > 10": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute

  • "(CHECK_INTERVAL > 10) AND (NAME co 2)": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute and the name of the resource contains the number 2

Note: All operators must be surrounded by spaces.

See Also: Filters for more information about operators

-i

If you specify -i, then CRSCTL returns an error if processing this command requires waiting for Oracle Clusterware to unlock the resource or its dependents. Sometimes, Oracle Clusterware locks resources or other objects to prevent commands from interfering with each other.

-f

Use this parameter to delete a resource that is online.

Usage Notes

  • Either the resource_name or -w "filter" parameter is required

  • You must have read and write permissions to delete the specified resources

  • Do not use this command for any resources with names that begin with ora because these resources are Oracle resources

Example

To delete a resource from Oracle Clusterware:

# crsctl delete resource myResource

crsctl eval add resource

Predicts the effects of adding a resource without making changes to the system.

This command may be useful to application administrators.

Syntax

crsctl eval add resource resource_name -type resource_type [-file file_path
    | -attr "attribute_name=attribute_value[,...]"]] [-group group_name] [-f]    

Parameters

Table E-4 crsctl eval add resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name

Specify a short, descriptive name for the resource.

-type resource_type

Specify the type of resource that you are adding following the -type flag.

-file file_path

Path name (either absolute or relative) for a text file containing line-delimited attribute name-value pairs that define the resource.

-attr "attribute_name=attribute_value"

You can specify attributes for a resource you are adding in two different ways:

  • Following the -attr flag, you can specify one or more comma-delimited attribute name-value pairs enclosed in double quotations marks (""). For example:

    -attr "CHECK_INTERVAL=30,START_TIMEOUT=25"

    Some attributes can have multiple values. In those cases, separate the values with a space and enclose the list of values in single quotation marks. For example:

    -attr "SERVER_POOL_NAMES=
    'ora.pool1 ora.pool2',START_TIMEOUT=25"
  • Optionally, you can specify attribute values for resource instances with a particular cardinality value, and with a particular degree value. This method can be useful for applications that are tied to a particular server. Following the -attr flag, the syntax is as follows:

    attribute_name{@SERVERNAME(server_name)
    [@DEGREEID(did)] | @CARDINALITYID(cid)
    [@DEGREEID(did)]}=attribute_value

    If you specify the @SERVERNAME(server_name) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resource instances residing on the server you specify.

    Alternatively, if you specify the @CARDINALITYID(cid) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resource instances with a specific cardinality ID (cid).

    Optionally, you can combine the @DEGREEID(did) syntax with either the SERVERNAME or CARDINALITYID syntax, or both, to limit the attribute value to resources with the specific DEGREE.

    Examples:

    CHECK_INTERVAL@SERVERNAME(node1)=45
    STOP_TIMEOUT@CARDINALITYID(2)=65
    STOP_TIMEOUT@SERVERNAME(node1)@DEGREEID(2)=65
    STOP_TIMEOUT@CARDINALITYID(3)@DEGREEID(2)=65
-group group_name

Specify a resource group to which you want to add the resource.

-f

Use the force parameter:

  • To add a resource that has dependencies on other resources that do not yet exist. The force parameter overrides checks that would prevent a command from being completed.

  • To add a resource if the resource has hard dependencies on other resources and the owner of the resources does not execute permissions on one or more of the dependencies. If you do not specify the force parameter in this case, an error displays.

  • To add resources of application type because you may need to move servers into the Generic server pool. If the servers currently host resources that must be stopped, then the force parameter is required.

crsctl eval fail resource

Predicts the consequences of a resource failing.

Syntax

crsctl eval fail resource {resource_name | -w "filter"} [-n server]
   [-env "attr=val[,...]"]

Parameters

Table E-5 crsctl eval fail resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name

Specify the name of a resource for which you want to simulate a failure. You must specify either the name of a resource or resource filters using the -w parameter.

-w "filter"

Alternatively, you can specify a resource filter that Oracle Clusterware uses to limit the number of resources evaluated. The filter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (""). Examples of resource filters include:

  • "TYPE == cluster_resource": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate only resources of cluster_resource type

  • "CHECK_INTERVAL > 10": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute

  • "(CHECK_INTERVAL > 10) AND (NAME co 2)": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute and the name of the resource contains the number 2

Note: All operators must be surrounded by spaces.

See Also: "Filters" for more information about operators

-n server

Specify the name of the server on which the resource that you want to simulate a failure resides.

-env "attr=val[,...]"

You can optionally override one or more resource profile attribute values with the -env command parameter. If you specify multiple environment name-value pairs, then you must separate each pair with a comma and enclose the entire list in double quotation marks ("").

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:

$ crsctl eval fail res cs1
 
Stage Group 1:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage Number    Required       Action
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
     1              Y   Resource 'cs1' (1/1) will be in state
                        [ONLINE|INTERMEDIATE] on server
                        [mjkeenan_node_0]
                    Y   Resource 'cs1' (2/1) will be in state

                        [mjkeenan_node_1]
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

crsctl eval relocate resource

Simulates relocating a resource without making changes to the system.

Syntax

crsctl eval relocate resource {resource_name | -all} {-s source_server | -w "filter"}
  [-n destination_server] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-6 crsctl eval relocate resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name

Specify the name of a resource you want to relocate.

-all

Alternatively, you can use this parameter to specify all resources for relocation.

-s source_server

Specify a particular server from which you want to relocate the resources.

-w "filter"

Alternative to using -s, you can specify a resource filter that CRSCTL uses to limit the number of resources relocated. The filter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (""). Examples of resource filters include:

  • "TYPE == cluster_resource": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate only resources of cluster_resource type

  • "CHECK_INTERVAL > 10": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute

  • "(CHECK_INTERVAL > 10) AND (NAME co 2)": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute and the name of the resource contains the number 2

See Also: "Filters" for more information

-n destination_server

Specify the name of the server to which you want to relocate resources. If you do not specify a destination server, then CRSCTL relocates the resources to the best server according to the attribute profile of each resource.

–f

Specify the -f parameter to force the relocation of the resource when it has other resources running that depend on it. CRSCTL stops or relocates dependent resources when you use this parameter.

Note: When you are relocating resources that have cardinality greater than 1, you must use either -k or -s to narrow down which resource instances are to be relocated.

crsctl eval modify resource

Predicts the effects of modifying a resource without making changes to the system.

Syntax

crsctl eval modify resource resource_name -attr "attribute_name=attribute_value[,...]"
    [-group group_name] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-7 crsctl eval modify resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name

Specify the name of the resource you want to evaluate.

-attr "attribute_name=attribute_value[,...]"

You can specify attributes for a resource you want to evaluate in two different ways:

  • Following the -attr flag, you can specify one or more comma-delimited attribute name-value pairs to modify enclosed in double quotations marks (""). For example:

    -attr "CHECK_INTERVAL=30, START_TIMEOUT=25"

    Some attributes can have multiple values. In those cases, separate the values with a space and enclose the list of values in single quotation marks. For example:

    -attr "SERVER_POOL_NAMES=
    'ora.pool1 ora.pool2',START_TIMEOUT=25"
  • Alternatively, you can specify attribute values for resources on a particular server, with a particular cardinality value, and with a particular degree value. This method can be useful for applications that are somehow tied to a particular server. Following the -attr flag, the syntax is as follows:

    [@DEGREEID(did)] | @CARDINALITYID(cid)
    [@DEGREEID(did)]}=attribute_value

    If you specify the @SERVERNAME(server_name) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resources residing on the server you specify.

    Alternatively, if you specify the @CARDINALITYID(cid) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resource instances with a specific cardinality ID (cid).

    Optionally, you can combine the @DEGREEID(did) syntax with either the SERVERNAME or CARDINALITYID syntax, or both, to limit the attribute value to resources with the specific DEGREE.

   [-n server_name] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-8 crsctl eval start resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name [...]

Specify one or more space-delimited resource names to start.

-w "filter"

Specify a resource filter surrounded by double quotation marks ("") that Oracle Clusterware uses to match resources. For example, -w "TYPE = ora.database.type" or -w "NAME = cs1".

See Also: "Filters" for more information

-n server_name

Specify the name of the server on which the resources you want to start reside. If you do not specify a server, then Oracle Clusterware starts the resources on the best server according to the attribute profile of each resource.

–f

Use the -f parameter to relocate a resource running on another server on which the resource you want to start has a hard start dependency. If you do not specify the force parameter in this case, then the start command fails.

crsctl eval stop resource

Predicts the effect of stopping a resource without making changes to the system.

Syntax

crsctl eval stop resource {resource_name [...] | -w "filter"} [-f]

Parameters

Table E-9 crsctl eval stop resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name [...]

Specify one or more space-delimited resource names to stop.

-w "filter"

Specify a resource filter that Oracle Clusterware uses to limit the number of resources stopped. The filter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (""). Examples of resource filters include:

  • "TYPE == cluster_resource": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to stop only resources of cluster_resource type

  • "CHECK_INTERVAL > 10": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to stop resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute

  • "(CHECK_INTERVAL > 10) AND (NAME co 2)": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to stop resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute and the name of the resource contains the number 2

crsctl getperm resource

Displays the user and group permissions for the specified resource.

Syntax

crsctl getperm resource resource_name [{-u user_name | -g group_name}]

Parameters

Table E-10 crsctl getperm resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name

Specify the name of the resource for which you want to obtain permissions.

-u user_name

If you specify -u, then Oracle Clusterware obtains permissions for a particular user.

-g group_name

If you specify -g, then Oracle Clusterware obtains permissions for a particular group.

Usage Notes

  • The resource_name parameter is required

  • You must have read permission on the specified resources to obtain their permissions

  • Do not use this command for any resources with names that begin with ora because these resources are Oracle resources

See Also:

Oracle Clusterware Resource Reference for more information about resources and resource attributes

Examples

The crsctl getperm resource command returns output similar to the following, depending on the command option you choose:
$ crsctl getperm resource app.appvip

Name: app.appvip
owner:root:rwx,pgrp:oinstall:rwx,other::r--
$ crsctl getperm resource app.appvip -u oracle

Name: app.appvip
rwx
$ crsctl getperm resource app.appvip -g dba

Name: app.appvip
r--

crsctl modify resource

Modifies the attributes of a particular resource in Oracle Clusterware.

Syntax

crsctl modify resource resource_name -attr "attribute_name=attribute_value"
[-i] [-f] [-delete] [-group group_name]  [-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."]

Parameters

Table E-11 crsctl modify resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name

The name of the resource you want to modify.

-attr "attribute_name= attribute_value"

You can specify attributes for a resource you want to modify in two different ways:

  • Following the -attr flag, you can specify one or more comma-delimited attribute name-value pairs to modify enclosed in double quotations marks (""). For example:

    -attr "CHECK_INTERVAL=30, START_TIMEOUT=25"

    Some attributes can have multiple values. In those cases, separate the values with a space and enclose the list of values in single quotation marks. For example:

    -attr "SERVER_POOL_NAMES=
    'ora.pool1 ora.pool2',START_TIMEOUT=25"
  • Alternatively, you can specify attribute values for resources on a particular server, with a particular cardinality value, and with a particular degree value. This method can be useful for applications that are somehow tied to a particular server. Following the -attr flag, the syntax is as follows:

    attribute_name{@SERVERNAME(server_name)
    [@DEGREEID(did)] | @CARDINALITYID(cid)
    [@DEGREEID(did)]}=attribute_value

    If you specify the @SERVERNAME(server_name) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resources residing on the server you specify.

    Alternatively, if you specify the @CARDINALITYID(cid) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resource instances with a specific cardinality ID (cid).

    Optionally, you can combine the @DEGREEID(did) syntax with either the SERVERNAME or CARDINALITYID syntax, or both, to limit the attribute value to resources with the specific DEGREE.

    Examples:

    CHECK_INTERVAL@SERVERNAME(node1)=45
    STOP_TIMEOUT@CARDINALITYID(2)=65
    STOP_TIMEOUT@SERVERNAME(node1)@DEGREEID(2)=65
    STOP_TIMEOUT@CARDINALITYID(3)@DEGREEID(2)=65
-i

If you specify -i, then CRSCTL returns an error if processing this command requires waiting for Oracle Clusterware to unlock the resource or its dependents. Sometimes, Oracle Clusterware locks resources or other objects to prevent commands from interfering with each other.

-f

Use the -f parameter when:

  • The resource has a hard dependency on a non-existing resource

  • The owner of the resource does not have execute permissions on one or more hard dependencies

  • The modification results in servers being moved into the Generic pool and resources being stopped or relocated to accomplish the server move

-delete

If you specify the -delete parameter, then Oracle Clusterware deletes the named attribute.

-group group_name

Specify a resource group to which the resource belongs. The resource group must exist, and the resource cannot be a member of any other explicit resource group. If you do not specify a resource group, then CRSCTL adds the resource to a resource group with the same name as the resource.

-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."

You can optionally override one or more resource profile attribute values for this command. If you specify multiple environment name-value pairs, then you must separate each pair with a comma and enclose the entire list in double quotation marks ("").

Usage Notes

  • The resource_name parameter is required

  • If an attribute value for an attribute name-value pair contains commas, then the value must be enclosed in single quotation marks (''). For example:

    "START_DEPENDENCIES='hard(res1,res2,res3)'"
  • You must have read and write permissions on the specified resources to modify them

  • Do not use this command for any resources with names that begin with ora because these resources are Oracle resources

Example

To modify the attributes of the appsvip resource:

$ crsctl modify resource appsvip -attr USR_ORA_VIP=10.1.220.17 -i

crsctl relocate resource

Relocates resources to another server in the cluster.

Syntax

crsctl relocate resource {resource_name [-k cid] | -all | -w "filter"} -s source_server |
  [-n destination_server] [-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."] [-i] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-12 crsctl relocate resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name

Specify the name of a resource you want to relocate.

-k cid

Optionally, you can specify the resource cardinality ID. If you specify this parameter, then CRSCTL relocates the resource instance that has the cardinality you specify.

-all

Alternatively, you can use this parameter to specify all resources for relocation.

-w "filter"

Alternative to using -k or -all, you can specify a resource filter that CRSCTL uses to limit the number of resources relocated. The filter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (""). Examples of resource filters include:

  • "TYPE == cluster_resource": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate only resources of cluster_resource type

  • "CHECK_INTERVAL > 10": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute

  • "(CHECK_INTERVAL > 10) AND (NAME co 2)": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute and the name of the resource contains the number 2

See Also: "Filters" for more information

-s source_server

Specify a particular server from which you want to relocate the resources.

-n destination_server

Specify the name of the server to which you want relocate resources. If you do not specify a destination server, then CRSCTL relocates the resources to the best server according to the attribute profile of each resource.

-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."

You can optionally override one or more resource profile attribute values for this command. If you specify multiple environment name-value pairs, then you must separate each pair with a comma and enclose the entire list in double quotation marks ("").

–i

If you specify -i, then the command returns an error if processing this command requires waiting for Oracle Clusterware to unlock the resource or its dependents. Sometimes, Oracle Clusterware locks resources or other objects to prevent commands from interfering with each other.

–f

Specify the -f parameter to force the relocation of the resource when it has other resources running that depend on it. CRSCTL stops or relocates dependent resources when you use this parameter.

Note: When you are relocating resources that have cardinality greater than 1, you must use either -k or -s to narrow down which resource instances are to be relocated.

Usage Notes

  • Any one of the three following options is required to specify which resources you want to relocate:

    • You can specify one particular resource to relocate.

    • Or you can specify one particular or all the resources to relocate from a particular source server.

    • Thirdly, you can specify a resource filter that CRSCTL uses to match resources to relocate.

  • If a resource has a degree ID greater than 1, then CRSCTL relocates all instances of the resource.

  • You must have read and execute permissions on the specified resources to relocate them

  • Do not use this command for any resources with names that begin with ora because these resources are Oracle resources.

Examples

To relocate one particular resource from one server to another:

# crsctl relocate resource myResource1 -s node1 -n node3

crsctl restart resource

Restarts idle resources in the cluster, instead of having to run two commands to stop and start the resource.

Syntax

crsctl restart resource {resource_name [...] | -w "filter"} [-k cid] [-d did]
   [-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."] [-i] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-13 crsctl restart resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name [...]

See Also: "Filters" for more information

-k cid

Specify the resource cardinality ID. If you specify this parameter, then Oracle Clusterware restarts the resource instances that have the cardinality you specify.

-d did

Specify the resource degree ID. If you specify this parameter and the degree ID is greater than 1, then Oracle Clusterware restarts all resource instances that meet this criteria.

Note: You cannot use the -d parameter without specifying the -k parameter.

-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."

You can optionally override one or more resource profile attribute values with the -env command parameter. If you specify multiple environment name-value pairs, then you must separate each pair with a comma and enclose the entire list in double quotation marks ("").

-i

If you specify -i, then the command returns an error if processing this command requires waiting for Oracle Clusterware to unlock the resource or its dependents. Sometimes, Oracle Clusterware locks resources or other objects to prevent commands from interfering with each other.

–f

Use the -f parameter to relocate a resource running on another server on which the resource you want to restart has a hard start dependency. If you do not specify the force parameter in this case, then the start command fails.

Usage Notes

  • Either of the following options is required to specify which resources you want to restart:

    • You can specify one or more resources by name to restart

    • You can specify a resource filter that Oracle Clusterware uses to match resources to restart

  • You must have read and execute permissions on the specified resources to restart them

Values that contain parentheses or spaces must be enclosed in single quotation marks (''). Operators must be surrounded by spaces. Examples of resource filters include:

  • "TYPE == cluster_resource": This filter limits the display to only resources of cluster_resource type.

  • "CHECK_INTERVAL > 10": This filter limits the display to resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute

  • "(CHECK_INTERVAL > 10) AND (NAME co 2)": This filter limits the display to resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute and the name of the resource contains the number 2.

  • "START_DEPENDENCIES='hard(appsvip)'": This filter limits the display to resources that have a hard start dependency on the appsvip resource.

See Also: "Filters" for more information

[-p | -v] | [-f | -l | -g]
You can optionally specify the following parameters:
  • Specify either the -p parameter to display the static configuration of the resource or the -v parameter to display the run-time configuration of the resource.

  • Specify the -f parameter to display the full configuration of the resource; or specify the -l parameter to display all cardinal and degree values of the resource; or specify the -g parameter to check whether the specified resources are registered

  • Specify the -k cid parameter to specify a cardinality ID of the resources you want to query. Or you can specify the -n parameter to specify a particular server on which to check resources. Optionally, you can specify the -d parameter with the -n parameter to specify the degree ID of resources you want to check. If you specify a degree ID greater than 1, then Oracle Clusterware checks all resource instances on the server that meet this criteria.

    Use the -e parameter to evaluate the special values of a resource instance. You must also specify -p or -v with the -e parameter.

  • Specify the -s parameter with the -k parameter to obtain a list of target servers for relocation. You can further limit the output by specifying a degree ID with the -d parameter.

–t

Specify the -t parameter to display the output in tabular form.

-p [-attr attribute_name[,...] [-noname]

Specify -attr (followed by a single attribute name or a comma-delimited list of attribute names) or -noname following -p to either print specific attributes or bypass the default printing of the resource name, respectively.

-dependency [-stop | -pullup]

Specify the -dependency parameter to display resource dependencies. If you do not specify either the -stop or -pullup option, then CRSCTL displays the start dependencies of the resource.

Use either of the following options with the -dependency parameter:
  • Specify the -stop parameter to display resource stop dependencies.

  • Specify the -pullup parameter to display resource pull up dependencies.

Usage Notes

  • Either a space-delimited list of resources or a resource filter is required.

  • You must have read permissions on the specified resources to obtain their status.

  • Use crsctl status resource to query the status information of any resource deployed in the cluster. Oracle recommends, however, that you use the respective SRCVTL command to query the status information of Oracle (ora.*) resources.

Examples

The crsctl status resource command returns output similar to the following:

$ crsctl status resource ora.staii14.vip

NAME=ora.staii14.vip
TYPE=ora.cluster_vip_net1.type
TARGET=ONLINE
STATE=ONLINE on staii14

The following example shows the start dependencies for a resource named ora.newdb.db:

$ crsctl status resource ora.newdb.db -dependency ora.newdb.db(ora.database.type)

  ora.ACFS_DG1.dg(ora.diskgroup.type)[hard,pullup]
    ora.asm(ora.asm.type)[hard,pullup]
      ora.LISTENER.lsnr(ora.listener.type)[weak]
        type:ora.cluster_vip_net1.type[hard:type,pullup:type]

attribute_value"} [-i] [-f] [-delete]

Parameters

Table E-27 crsctl modify resourcegroup Command Parameters

Parameter Description
group_name

Specify the name of the resource group you want to modify.

-attr "attribute_name= attribute_value"

You can specify attributes for a resource group you want to modify in two different ways:

  • Following the -attr flag, you can specify one or more comma-delimited attribute name-value pairs to modify enclosed in double quotations marks (""). For example:

    -attr "CHECK_INTERVAL=30, START_TIMEOUT=25"

    Some attributes can have multiple values. In those cases, separate the values with a space and enclose the list of values in single quotation marks. For example:

    -attr "SERVER_POOL_NAMES=
    'ora.pool1 ora.pool2',START_TIMEOUT=25"
  • Alternatively, you can specify attribute values for resources on a particular server, with a particular cardinality value, and with a particular degree value. This method can be useful for applications that are somehow tied to a particular server. Following the -attr flag, the syntax is as follows:

    attribute_name{@SERVERNAME(server_name)
    [@DEGREEID(did)] | @CARDINALITYID(cid)
    [@DEGREEID(did)]}=attribute_value

    If you specify the @SERVERNAME(server_name) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resources residing on the server you specify.

    Alternatively, if you specify the @CARDINALITYID(cid) syntax, then the attribute value you specify for the attribute you specify is limited to resource instances with a specific cardinality ID (cid).

    Optionally, you can combine the @DEGREEID(did) syntax with either the SERVERNAME or CARDINALITYID syntax, or both, to limit the attribute value to resources with the specific DEGREE.

    Examples:

    CHECK_INTERVAL@SERVERNAME(node1)=45
    STOP_TIMEOUT@CARDINALITYID(2)=65
    STOP_TIMEOUT@SERVERNAME(node1)@DEGREEID(2)=65
    STOP_TIMEOUT@CARDINALITYID(3)@DEGREEID(2)=65
–i

If you specify -i, then CRSCTL returns an error if processing this command requires waiting for Oracle Clusterware to unlock the resource group or its dependents. Sometimes, Oracle Clusterware locks resource groups or other objects to prevent commands from interfering with each other.

–f

Use the -f parameter when:

  • The resource group has a hard dependency on a non-existing resource.

  • The owner of the resource group does not have execute permissions on one or more hard dependencies.

  • The modification results in servers being moved into the Generic pool and resources being stopped or relocated to accomplish the server move.

–delete

If you specify the -delete parameter, then Oracle Clusterware deletes the named attribute.

Usage Notes

You can modify the name of the resource group and add or change existing attributes.

crsctl relocate resourcegroup

Relocates online resource groups from a source server to a target server.

This command first stops the resource groups you specify on the source server and then starts them on the target server.

Syntax

crsctl relocate resourcegroup {group_name [...] [-k cid] | -all | -w "filter"}
   [-env "attr=val[,...]"] [-f] [-i]

Parameters

Table E-28 crsctl relocate resourcegroup Command Parameters

Parameter Description
group_name

Specify a resource group or a number of resource groups in a space-delimited list that you want to relocate.

-k cid

Optionally, you can specify the resource group cardinality ID. If you specify this parameter, then CRSCTL relocates the resource instances that have the cardinality you specify.

-all

Specify this parameter to relocate all resource groups on the source server.

-w "filter"

Specify a resource group filter surrounded by double quotation marks ("") that CRSCTL uses to match resource groups. For example, -w "TYPE = ora.database.type" or -w "NAME = cs1".

See Also: Filters for more information about filters

-s source_server_name

Specify the name of the source server on which the resource groups reside that you want to relocate. This parameter is required.

-n target_server_name

Optionally, you can specify the name of the server to which you want to relocate the resource groups. If you do not specify a target server, then CRSCTL relocates the resource groups on the best server according to the attribute profile of each resource group.

-env "attr=val[,...]"

You can optionally override one or more resource group profile attribute values with the -env command parameter. If you specify multiple environment name-value pairs, then you must separate each pair with a comma and enclose the entire list in double quotation marks ("").

–f

Specify this option force the relocation of the resource groups you specify.

–i

If you specify -i, then the command returns an error if processing this command requires waiting for Oracle Clusterware to unlock the resource or its dependents. Sometimes, Oracle Clusterware locks resources or other objects to prevent commands from interfering with each other.

Example

To relocate all resource groups running on node1 to node2:

$ crsctl relocate resourcegroup resGrp1 -s node1 -n node2

crsctl restart resourcegroup

Restarts resource groups on the server where they currently reside.

Syntax

crsctl restart resourcegroup {group_name [...] | -w "filter"} [-k cid]

-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."

You can optionally override one or more resource group profile attribute values with the -env command parameter. If you specify multiple environment name-value pairs, then you must separate each pair with a comma and enclose the entire list in double quotation marks ("").

–f

Use the -f parameter to restart a resource, running on the server on which the resource group resides that you want to restart, that has a hard start dependency on another resource. If you do not specify the force parameter in this case, then the start command fails.

–i

If you specify -i, then the command returns an error if processing this command requires waiting for Oracle Clusterware to unlock the resource or its dependents. Sometimes, Oracle Clusterware locks resources or other objects to prevent commands from interfering with each other.

Example

The following command restarts resource group resGrp1:

$ crsctl restart resourcegroup resGrp1

crsctl start resourcegroup

 | -file file_path,TYPE={string | int} [,DEFAULT_VALUE=default_value][,FLAGS=typeFlags"} [-i]

Parameters

Table E-36 crsctl add type Command Parameters

Parameter Description
type_name

Specify a name for the resource type in the form of xxx.yyy.type. Resource type names must be unique and cannot be changed after the resource type is registered.

-basetype base_type_name

The name of an existing base type. Any resource type that you create must either have local_resource or cluster_resource as its base resource type.

-attr "ATTRIBUTE=attribute_name

You can specify the resource type attributes using the -attr argument. Each type attribute definition can contain up to four type attribute keywords that must be displayed in the order shown. Enter a comma-delimited description of one or more resource type attributes enclosed in double quotation marks (""). The keywords for an attribute include:

  1. ATTRIBUTE: Specify a name for the attribute. The name is case-sensitive and cannot contain spaces.

  2. TYPE: Specify whether the attribute type is integer or string.

  3. DEFAULT_VALUE: (Optional) If the attribute is required, then a default value is not required. For attributes that are not required, you must specify a default value that Oracle Clusterware uses when you create resources based on this resource type.

  4. FLAGS: (Optional) Specify one or more of the following types, separated by a vertical bar (|):

    CONFIG: After you register a resource with this resource type, you can configure the attribute.

    READONLY: After you register a resource with this resource type, you cannot modify this attribute.

    REQUIRED: You must specify the name and value of this attribute when you create a resource that is based on this resource type. If you specify that this attribute is not required, then Oracle Clusterware uses the default value of this attribute that you specify.

    HOTMOD: If you change the value of an attribute for resources of this type, then the changes are applied immediately with the need to restart the resource.

You cannot use multiple -attr arguments to define multiple arguments for the resource type. Instead, you can specify multiple types within the double quotation marks after the -attr flag. For example:

"ATTRIBUTE=FOO,TYPE=integer,DEFAULT_VALUE=0,
FLAGS=REQUIRED|HOTMOD,ATTRIBUTE=BAR,TYPE=string"

The preceding example defines two type attributes, FOO and BAR. When you specify the ATTRIBUTE keyword, it ends the previous type attribute (if any) and begins a new type attribute.

-file file_path

Path name (either absolute or relative) for a text file containing line-delimited resource type keyword-value pairs that define the resource type. An example of the contents of the file is:

ATTRIBUTE=FOO
TYPE=integer
DEFAULT_VALUE=0
FLAGS=REQUIRED
ATTRIBUTE=BAR
TYPE=string

Note: The keywords must be in the following order: ATTRIBUTE, TYPE, DEFAULT_VALUE, and FLAGS. When you specify the ATTRIBUTE keyword, it ends the previous type attribute (if any) and begins a new type attribute.

The preceding example defines two type attributes, FOO and BAR.

Note: All operators must be surrounded by spaces.

See Also: "Filters" for more information about operators

–i

If you specify -i, then the command fails if Oracle Clusterware cannot process the request immediately.

See Also:

"Oracle Clusterware Resource Types" for more information about resource types

Usage Notes

  • Both the type_name and base_type_name parameters are required

  • You can either specify a file containing the type information or you can specify the type information on the command line

  • Do not use this command for any resource types with names that begin with ora because these resource types are Oracle resource types

  • You must have read permissions on the base type

Example

To create a resource type for demoActionScript:
# crsctl add type test_type1 -basetype cluster_resource -attr
  "ATTRIBUTE=FOO,TYPE=integer,DEFAULT_VALUE=0"

crsctl delete type

Removes resource types from the Oracle Clusterware configuration.

Syntax

crsctl delete type type_name [-i]

Usage Notes

  • The type_name parameter is required. You can specify more than one type by separating each type by a space.

  • If you specify -i, then the command fails if Oracle Clusterware cannot process the request immediately.

  • Do not use this command for any resource types with names that begin with ora because these resource types are Oracle resource types.

Example

To delete two resource types, run the following command as a user who has write permissions on the resource type:
$ crsctl delete type test_type1 test_type2

crsctl getperm type

Obtains permissions for a particular resource type.

Syntax

  • CHECK_INTERVAL > 10: This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to perform actions on only resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute

  • (CHECK_INTERVAL > 10) AND (NAME co 2): This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to perform actions on only resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute and the name of the resource contains the number 2

See Also: "Filters" for more information

-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."

You can optionally override one or more resource profile attribute values with the -env command parameter. If you specify multiple environment name-value pairs, then you must separate each pair with a comma and enclose the entire list in double quotation marks ("").

–i

If you specify -i, then the command fails if Oracle Clusterware cannot process the request immediately.

Usage Notes

The action_name must be a supported action, defined both in the agent and in the ACTIONS resource attribute, and the user must have permission to run the action. You can set permissions in the ACTIONS resource attribute.

Table E-49 crsctl start cluster Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-all

Use this parameter to start the Oracle Clusterware stack on all servers in the cluster.

-n server [...]

Optionally, you can specify one or more named servers in the cluster (separate multiple server names by a space), or the local server, if you do not specify either -all or -n.

-hub

Optionally, you can specify -hub to start the Oracle Clusterware stack on Hub Nodes in the cluster.

-w "filter"

Optionally, you can use this parameter to start only servers that match a filter, such as "ACTIVE_CSS_ROLE = hub".

See Also: Filters for more information about filters.

crsctl stop cluster

Stops the Oracle Clusterware stack on all servers in the cluster or specific servers when you run the command on any node in the cluster.

Syntax

crsctl stop cluster [[-all] | [-n server [...]] | -hub | -w "filter"] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-50 crsctl stop cluster Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-all

Use this parameter to start the Oracle Clusterware stack on all servers in the cluster.

-n server [...]

Optionally, you can specify one or more named servers in the cluster (separate multiple server names by a space), or the local server, if you do not specify either -all or -n.

-hub

Optionally, you can specify -hub to stop the Oracle Clusterware stack on a specific Hub Node in the cluster.

-w "filter"

Optionally, you can use this parameter to stop only servers that match a filter, such as "ACTIVE_CSS_ROLE = hub".

See Also: Filters for more information about filters.

Usage Notes

  • If you do not specify -all or one or more space-delimited server names, then Oracle Clusterware stops the Oracle Clusterware stack on the local server.

  • You can use this cluster-aware command on any node in the cluster.

  • This command attempts to gracefully stop resources managed by Oracle Clusterware while attempting to stop the Oracle Clusterware stack.

    If any resources that Oracle Clusterware manages are still running after you run the crsctl stop cluster command, then the command fails. Use the -f parameter to unconditionally stop all resources and stop the Oracle Clusterware stack.

  • If you intend to stop Oracle Clusterware on all or a list of nodes, then use the crsctl stop cluster command, because it prevents certain resources from being relocated to other servers in the cluster before the Oracle Clusterware stack is stopped on a particular server. If you must stop the Oracle High Availability Services on one or more nodes, then wait until the crsctl stop cluster command completes and then run the crsctl stop crs command on any particular nodes, as necessary.

Example

To stop the Oracle Clusterware stack on a particular server:

# crsctl stop cluster -n node1

Syntax

crsctl stop crs [-f]

Usage Notes

  • You must run this command as root.

  • This command attempts to gracefully stop resources managed by Oracle Clusterware while attempting to stop Oracle High Availability Services on the local server.

    If any resources that Oracle Clusterware manages are still running after you run the crsctl stop crs command, then the command fails. Use the -f parameter to unconditionally stop all resources and stop Oracle High Availability Services on the local server.

  • If you intend to stop Oracle Clusterware on all or a list of nodes, then use the crsctl stop cluster command, because it prevents certain resources from being relocated to other servers in the cluster before the Oracle Clusterware stack is stopped on a particular server. If you must stop the Oracle High Availability Services on one or more nodes, then wait until the crsctl stop cluster command completes and then run the crsctl stop crs command on any particular nodes, as necessary.

  • Before attempting to shut down the Oracle Clusterware technology stack on all nodes with an Oracle ASM instance running in parallel in an Oracle Clusterware standard Cluster with Oracle Flex ASM enabled, you must first relocate at least one Oracle ASM instance to another node where Oracle ASM is not running.

  • CRSCTL uses a shutdown abort stop option when running this command to improve high availability and failover times.

  • If you shut down the database with SRVCTL, before you run crsctl stop crs, then you must restart the resources after Oracle Clusterware comes up.

  • In Oracle Clusterware 11g release 2 (11.2.0.3), when you run this command in Solaris Sparc and Solaris X64 environments, drivers remain loaded on shutdown and subsequent startup. This does not happen in Linux environments.

Example

To stop Oracle High Availability Services on the local server:

# crsctl stop crs

crsctl query crs activeversion

Displays the active version and the configured patch level of the Oracle Clusterware software running in the cluster.

During a rolling upgrade, however, the active version is not advanced until the upgrade is finished across the cluster, until which time the cluster operates at the pre-upgrade version. Additionally, during a rolling patch, the active patch level is not advanced until the patching is finished across the cluster, until which time the cluster operates at the pre-upgrade patch level.

Syntax

crsctl query crs activeversion [-f]

crsctl query crs softwareversion [node_name]

Usage Notes

If you do not provide a node name, then Oracle Clusterware displays the version of Oracle Clusterware running on the local server.

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
Oracle Clusterware version on node [node1] is [12.2.0.1.0]

crsctl get css

Obtains the value of a specific Cluster Synchronization Services parameter.

Syntax

crsctl get css parameter

Usage Notes

  • Cluster Synchronization Services parameters and their default values include:

    clusterguid
    diagwait
    disktimeout (200 (seconds))
    misscount (30 (seconds))
    reboottime (3 (seconds))
    priority (4 (UNIX), 3 (Windows))
    logfilesize (50 (MB))
  • This command does not display default values.

  • This command only affects the local server.

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
$ crsctl get css disktimeout
CRS-4678: Successful get disktimeout 200 for Cluster Synchronization Services.

crsctl pin css

Pins many specific nodes.

Pinning a node means that the association of a node name with a node number is fixed. If a node is not pinned, its node number may change if the lease expires while it is down. The lease of a pinned node never expires.

Syntax

crsctl pin css -n node_name [ node_name [...]]

Usage Notes

  • You can specify a space-delimited list of servers

  • Any pre-12c release 1 (12.1) Oracle software must reside on a pinned server.

  • A node may be unpinned with crsctl unpin css.

  • Deleting a node with the crsctl delete node command implicitly unpins the node.

Example

To pin the node named node2:
# crsctl pin css -n node2

crsctl set css

Sets the value of a Cluster Synchronization Services parameter.

Syntax

crsctl set css parameter value

Usage Notes

  • Do not use the crsctl set css command to set the following parameters unless instructed to do so by My Oracle Support.

  • Cluster Synchronization Services parameters include:

    diagwait
    disktimeout
    logfilesize
    misscount
    priority
    reboottime

crsctl unpin css

Unpins many servers.

If a node is not pinned, its node number may change if the lease expires while it is down.

Syntax

crsctl unpin css -n node_name [node_name [...exit]]

Usage Notes

  • You can specify a space-delimited list of nodes.

  • Unpinned servers that stop for longer than a week are no longer reported by olsnodes. These servers are dynamic when they leave the cluster, so you do not need to explicitly remove them from the cluster.

  • Deleting a node with the crsctl delete node command implicitly unpins the node.

  • During upgrade of Oracle Clusterware, all servers are pinned, whereas after a fresh installation of Oracle Clusterware 12c, all servers you add to the cluster are unpinned.

  • You cannot unpin a server that has an instance of Oracle RAC that is older than 12c release 1 (12.1) if you installed Oracle Clusterware 12c on that server.

Example

To unpin two nodes:
$ crsctl unpin css -n node1 node4

crsctl unset css

Unsets the value of a Cluster Synchronization Services parameter and restores it to its default value.

Syntax

crsctl unset css parameter

Usage Notes

  • You can specify the following Cluster Synchronization Services parameters:

    • diagwait

    • disktimeout

    • misscount

    • reboottime

    • priority

    • logfilesize

Example

To restore the reboottime Cluster Synchronization Services parameter to its default value:
$ crsctl unset css reboottime

crsctl get css ipmiaddr

Retrieves the address stored in the Oracle Local Registry of the local Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) device.

Syntax

crsctl get css ipmiaddr

Usage Notes

  • Run the command under the user account used to install Oracle Clusterware.

  • This command only obtains the IP address stored in the Oracle Local Registry. It may not be the IP address actually used by IPMI.

    Use either ipmiutil or ipmitool as root on the local server to obtain the IP address used by the IPMI device.

crsctl set css ipmiaddr

Stores the address of the local Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) device in the Oracle Local Registry.

Syntax

crsctl set css ipmiaddr ip_address

Usage Notes

  • Run the command under the user account used to install Oracle Clusterware

  • Obtain the IP address used by the IPMI device using either ipmiutil or ipmitool as root on the local server

  • Oracle Clusterware stores the IP address for IPMI in the configuration store, and distributes the address as required

  • This command only stores the IPMI IP address on the server from which you run it

  • This command fails if another server cannot access IPMI at the supplied address

Example

To store the IPMI IP address on a local server and distribute it to other cluster nodes:
$ crsctl set css ipmiaddr 192.0.2.244

crsctl set css ipmiadmin

Stores the login credentials of an Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) administrator in the Oracle Local Registry.

Syntax

crsctl set css ipmiadmin ipmi_administrator_name

Usage Notes

  • This command must be run under the user account that installed Oracle Clusterware.

  • When prompted, provide the new password to associate with the new administrator account name. Oracle Clusterware stores the name and password for the local IPMI in the configuration store, and distributes the new credentials as required.

  • This command only modifies the IPMI administrator on the server from which you run it.

  • This command fails if another server cannot access the local IPMI at the supplied address.

Example

To modify the IPMI administrator scott:
$ crsctl set css ipmiadmin scott

crsctl query css ipmiconfig

Determines whether Oracle Clusterware on the local server has been configured to use IPMI for failure isolation.

Note that this command detects the presence of configuration data, but cannot not validate its correctness.

Syntax

crsctl query css ipmiconfig

Usage Notes

  • This command attempts to locate and access the IPMI configuration stored in the Oracle Cluster Registry (OCR) and should be executed under the account used to install Oracle Clusterware, or an authorization failure may be reported.

  • An authorization failure may not result when executed under another account, if the registry contains no IPMI configuration data.

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
CRS-4236: Oracle Clusterware configured to use IPMI
Or:
CRS-4237: Oracle Clusterware is not fully configured to use IPMI

crsctl unset css ipmiconfig

Clears all previously stored IPMI configuration (login credentials and IP address) from the Oracle Local Registry.

Prerequisites

This is appropriate when deconfiguring IPMI in your cluster or if IPMI configuration was previously stored by the wrong user.

Syntax

crsctl unset css ipmiconfig

Usage Notes

  • This command must be run under the user account originally used to configure IPMI or by a privileged user.

  • This command only clears the IPMI configuration on the server on which you run it.

  • If Oracle Clusterware was able to access and use the configuration data to be deleted by this command, then it will continue to do so until you restart Oracle Clusterware.

Example

To clear the IPMI configuration data from the Oracle Local Registry and restart Oracle Clusterware to prevent further use of IPMI, log in as root or a member of the Administrator's group on Windows and run the following commands:
# crsctl unset css ipmiconfig
# crsctl stop crs
# crsctl start crs

crsctl query css ipmidevice

Determines the presence of the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) driver on the local system.

Syntax

crsctl query css ipmidevice

Usage Notes

  • This command performs a pre-check during IPMI installation, and is normally issued only by the installer.

  • This command performs a perfunctory check and a success return does not guarantee that the IPMI hardware is fully configured for use.

  • There are no special privileges required to run this command.

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
CRS-4231: IPMI device and/or driver found
Or:
CRS-4218: Unable to access an IPMI device on this system

crsctl get css noautorestart

Parameters

Table E-68 crsctl status policy Command Parameters

Parameter Description
policy_name [...]

Specify the name of the policy or a space-delimited list of policy names for which you want to view the status.

-w "filter"

Alternatively, you can specify a policy filter preceded by the -w flag.

See Also: "Filters" for more information

-active

Alternatively, you can specify this parameter to display the status of the active policy.

Usage Notes

Privileges necessary to run this command depend on the value of the ACL attribute of the policy set.

crsctl create policyset

Creates a single policy set, in the form of a text file, that reflects the server pool configuration.

After you create a policy set, you can copy the contents of the text file to create other policy sets.

Syntax

crsctl create policyset -file path_to_file

Usage Notes

Specify a path to where CRSCTL creates a file that you can edit and then send back using crsctl modify policyset to add, delete, or update policies.

Example

To create a policy set:
$ crsctl create policyset -file /tmp/ps

crsctl modify policyset

Modifies an existing policy set.

Syntax

crsctl modify policyset {-attr "attr_name=attr_value[,attr_name=attr_value[, ...]]"
   | -file file_name} [-ksp] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-69 crsctl modify policyset Command Parameters

Parameter Description
attr_name

The name of a policy attribute you want to modify following the -attr flag. With this command, you can specify any of the following attributes:

  • ACL
  • LAST_ACTIVATED_POLICY
  • SERVER_POOL_NAMES
attr_value

A value for the policy attribute.

Note: The attr_name and attr_value parameters must be enclosed in double quotation marks ("") and separated by commas. For example:

-attr "ACL='owner:mjkeenan:rwx,pgrp:svrtech:rwx,other::r--',
SERVER_POOL_NAMES=sp1 sp2 Free"
-file file_name

If you specify this parameter instead of -attr, then enter a name of a file that contains policy set definitions.

-ksp

If you specify this parameter, then CRSCTL keeps the server pools in the system, which means that they are independent and not managed by the policy set.

–f

Specify this parameter to force enable policy set modifications.

Usage Notes

  • Privileges necessary to run this command depend on the value of the ACL attribute of the policy set

  • You can only specify policy definitions using the -file parameter or by running the crsctl modify policy command

Example

To modify an existing policy set, run the following command as root or the Oracle Clusterware installation owner:

# crsctl modify policyset –file my_policy_set.def

crsctl status policyset

Obtains the current policies in the policy set, including the access control list, which governs who can modify the set, the last activated policy, and the configuration which is now in effect, which is known as the Current policy.

Syntax

crsctl status policyset [-file file_name]

Usage Notes

  • You can specify this parameter to create a file that you can edit and then send back using crsctl modify policyset to add, delete, or update multiple policies. If you do not specify this optional parameter, then CRSCTL displays the Current configuration.

  • Privileges necessary to run this command depend on the value of the ACL attribute of the policy set.

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
ACL=owner:'mjkeenan:rwx,pgrp:g900:rwx,other::r--'

crsctl check resource

Initiates the check action inside the application-specific agent of a particular resource.

Oracle Clusterware only provides output if something prevents the system from issuing the check request, such as a bad resource name.

Syntax

crsctl check resource {resource_name [...] | -w "filter"} [-n node_name]
   [-k cardinality_id] [-d degree_id]

Parameters

Table E-70 crsctl check resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name [...]

Specify a particular resource. You can check multiple resources by entering a space-delimited list of resource names.

-w "filter"

Specify a resource filter that Oracle Clusterware uses to limit the number of resources checked. The filter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (""). Examples of resource filters include:

  • "TYPE == cluster_resource": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to check only resources of cluster_resource type

  • "CHECK_INTERVAL > 10": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to check resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute

  • "(CHECK_INTERVAL > 10) AND (NAME co 2)": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to check resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute and the name of the resource contains the number 2

See Also: "Filters" for more information

-n node_name

Check the resource instance on a specific node. If you do not specify the -n parameter, then Oracle Clusterware checks the resource instances only on the local server.

-k cardinality_id

Specify the resource cardinality ID.

-d degree_id

Specify the resource degree ID.

Usage Notes

  • You must have read and execute permissions on the specified resources to check them.

  • Do not use this command for any resources with names that begin with ora because these resources are Oracle resources.

  • If this command is successful, it only means that a check was issued; it does not mean the CHECK action was completed.

Example

To initiate the check action inside the application-specific agent of a particular resource:
$ crsctl check resource appsvip

crsctl relocate resource

Relocates resources to another server in the cluster.

Syntax

crsctl relocate resource {resource_name [-k cid] | {resource_name | -all}
   -s source_server | -w "filter"} [-n destination_server] [-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."]
   [-i] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-71 crsctl relocate resource Command Parameters

Parameter Description
resource_name [-k cid]

Specify the name of a resource you want to relocate.

Optionally, you can also specify the resource cardinality ID. If you specify this parameter, then Oracle Clusterware relocates the resource instance that have the cardinality you specify.

resource_name | -all -s source_server

Alternatively, you can specify one particular resource or all resources located on a particular server that you specify from which you want to relocate those resources.

-w "filter"

Alternatively, you can specify a resource filter that Oracle Clusterware uses to limit the number of resources relocated. The filter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (""). Examples of resource filters include:

  • "TYPE == cluster_resource": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate only resources of cluster_resource type

  • "CHECK_INTERVAL > 10": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute

  • "(CHECK_INTERVAL > 10) AND (NAME co 2)": This filter limits Oracle Clusterware to relocate resources that have a value greater than 10 for the CHECK_INTERVAL resource attribute and the name of the resource contains the number 2

See Also: "Filters" for more information

-n destination_server

Specify the name of the server to which you want relocate resources. If you do not specify a destination server, then Oracle Clusterware relocates the resources to the best server according to the attribute profile of each resource.

-env "env1=val1,env2=val2,..."

You can optionally override one or more resource profile attribute values for this command. If you specify multiple environment name-value pairs, then you must separate each pair with a comma and enclose the entire list in double quotation marks ("").

–i

If you specify -i, then the command returns an error if processing this command requires waiting for Oracle Clusterware to unlock the resource or its dependents. Sometimes, Oracle Clusterware locks resources or other objects to prevent commands from interfering with each other.

–f

Specify the -f parameter to force the relocating of the resource when it has other resources running that depend on it. Dependent resources are relocated or stopped when you use this parameter.

Note: When you are relocating resources that have cardinality greater than 1, you must use either -k or -s to narrow down which resource instances are to be relocated.

Usage Notes

  • Any one of the three following options is required to specify which resources you want to relocate:

    • You can specify one particular resource to relocate.

    • Or you can specify one particular or all the resources to relocate from a particular source server.

    • Thirdly, you can specify a resource filter that Oracle Clusterware uses to match resources to relocate.

  • If a resource has a degree ID greater than 1, then Oracle Clusterware relocates all instances of the resource.

  • You must have read and execute permissions on the specified resources to relocate them.

  • Do not use this command for any resources with names that begin with ora because these resources are Oracle resources.

Example

To relocate one particular resource from one server to another:
# crsctl relocate resource myResource1 -s node1 -n node3

crsctl get resource use

Checks the current setting value of the RESOURCE_USE_ENABLED server configuration parameter.

Syntax

crsctl get resource use

Usage Notes

The possible values are 1 or 0. If the value for this attribute is 1, which is the default, then the server can be used for resource placement. If the value is 0, then Oracle Clusterware disallows starting server pool resources on the server. The server remains in the Free server pool.

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
CRS-4966: Current resource use parameter value is 1

crsctl set resource use

Sets the value of the RESOURCE_USE_ENABLED server configuration parameter for the server on which you run this command.

Syntax

crsctl set resource use [1 | 0]

Usage Notes

  • The possible values are 1 or 0. If you set the value for this attribute to 1, which is the default, then the server can be used for resource placement. If you set the value to 0, then Oracle Clusterware disallows starting server pool resources on the server. The server remains in the Free server pool.

  • You must run this command as root or a cluster administrator, or an administrator on Windows systems.

Example

To set the value of the RESOURCE_USE_ENABLED server configuration parameter:
# crsctl set resource use 1

crsctl start rollingpatch

Transitions Oracle Clusterware and Oracle ASM into rolling patch mode.

In this mode, the software tolerates nodes having different patch levels.

Syntax

crsctl start rollingpatch

Usage Notes

  • This command queries the Oracle Clusterware rolling patch state and Oracle ASM cluster state. If either one is not in rolling patch mode, then it will use the appropriate method to transition Oracle Clusterware or Oracle ASM to rolling patch mode.

  • If Oracle Clusterware and Oracle ASM are both in rolling patch mode when you run this command, then this command does nothing.

  • The rolling patch mode is not persistent. If all the nodes in a cluster are shut down and restarted, then the cluster transitions out of rolling patch mode when it is restarted. Similarly, if Oracle Clusterware is stopped and then restarted on all nodes in the cluster, then the rolling patch mode is lost.

  • This command does not transition Oracle ASM to rolling patch mode if issued within an Oracle ASM Client Cluster.

crsctl stop rollingpatch

Transitions Oracle Clusterware and Oracle ASM out of rolling patch mode.

Once the software transitions out of rolling patch mode, it does not tolerate nodes having different patch levels.

Syntax

crsctl stop rollingpatch

Usage Notes

  • This command queries the Oracle Clusterware rolling patch state and Oracle ASM cluster state. If either one is in rolling patch mode, then it will use the appropriate method to transition Oracle Clusterware or Oracle ASM out of rolling patch mode.

  • This command verifies that all the nodes in the cluster have a consistent patch level, and returns an error otherwise.

  • If neither Oracle Clusterware or Oracle ASM are in rolling patch mode when you issue this command, then this command does nothing.

  • This command does not transition Oracle ASM out of rolling patch mode if issued within an Oracle ASM Client Cluster.

crsctl start rollingupgrade

Transitions Oracle Clusterware and Oracle ASM into rolling upgrade mode.

Syntax

crsctl start rollingupgrade version

Usage Notes

  • This command queries the Oracle Clusterware rolling upgrade state and Oracle ASM cluster state. If either one is not in rolling upgrade mode, then it will use the appropriate method to transition Oracle Clusterware or Oracle ASM to rolling upgrade mode.

  • If Oracle Clusterware and Oracle ASM are both in rolling upgrade mode when you run this command, then this command does nothing.

  • The rolling upgrade mode is not persistent. If all the nodes in a cluster are shut down and restarted, then the cluster transitions out of rolling upgrade mode when it is restarted. Similarly, if Oracle Clusterware is stopped and then restarted on all nodes in the cluster, then the rolling upgrade mode is lost.

  • This command does not transition Oracle ASM to rolling upgrade mode if run within an Oracle ASM Client Cluster.

crsctl eval add server

Simulates the addition of a server without making changes to the system.

This command may be useful to cluster administrators.

Syntax

crsctl eval add server server_name [-file file_path] | [-attr "attr_name=attr_value[,...]"]
    [-admin [-l level [-x] [-a]] [-explain]

Parameters

Table E-72 crsctl eval add server Command Parameters

Parameter Description
server_name

The name of the server you want to add.

-file file_path

Fully-qualified path to a file containing server attributes.

-attr "attr_name=attr_value[,...]"

Alternatively, you can specify the name of a server attribute you want to modify preceded by the -attr flag, followed by a value for the server attribute.

Note: The attr_name=attr_value name-value pairs must be enclosed in double quotation marks (""). Multiple name-value pairs must be separated by commas. For example:
-attr "MAX_SIZE=30,IMPORTANCE=25"
-admin [-l level] [-x] [-a]

If you specify this parameter, then CRSCTL displays output for the cluster administrator.

If you specify the -l parameter, then you can choose one of the following three output levels:

  • serverpools: Restricts the output to servers running in a server pool

  • resources: Restricts the output to resources running on servers in a server pool

  • all: Displays all available output

If you specify the -x parameter, then CRSCTL displays the differences.

If you specify the -a parameter, then CRSCTL displays all resources.

Note: To specify either the -l, -x, or -a parameters, or any combination of the three, you must specify the -admin parameter.

-explain Specify this parameter to display reasoned command evaluation information.

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:

$ crsctl eval add server scott_node5_0

If you specify -i, then the command fails if Oracle Clusterware cannot process the request immediately.

-f

If you specify the -f parameter, then Oracle Clusterware stops resources running on a server in another server pool and relocates that server into the server pool you are adding. If you do not specify the -f parameter, then Oracle Clusterware checks whether the creation of the server pool results in stopping any resources on a server in another server pool that is going to give up a server to the server pool you are adding. If so, then Oracle Clusterware rejects the crsctl add serverpool command.

Usage Notes

  • The server_pool_name parameter is required.

  • If an attribute value for an attribute name-value pair contains commas, then the value must be enclosed in single quotation marks ('').

  • Do not use this command for any server pools with names that begin with ora because these server pools are Oracle server pools.

  • Running this command may result in Oracle Clusterware relocating other servers between server pools to comply with the new configuration.

  • You must run this command as root or a cluster administrator.

  • Use the crsctl add serverpool command to create server pools that host non-database resources. To create server pools that host Oracle databases, use the SRVCTL command utility.

    See Also:

    Oracle Real Application Clusters Administration and Deployment Guide for information about using the SRVCTL command utility to create server pools

Examples

To add a server pool named testsp with a maximum size of 5 servers, run the following command as root or the Oracle Clusterware installation owner:

# crsctl add serverpool testsp -attr "MAX_SIZE=5"

Create the sp1_attr file with the attribute values for the sp1 server pool, each on its own line, as shown in the following example:

IMPORTANCE=1
MIN_SIZE=1
MAX_SIZE=2
SERVER_NAMES=node3 node4 node5
PARENT_POOLS=Generic
EXCLUSIVE_POOLS=testsp
ACL=owner:oracle:rwx,pgrp:oinstall:rwx,other::r--

Use the following command to create the sp1 server pool using the sp1_attr file as input:

$ crsctl add serverpool sp1 -file /tmp/sp1_attr

crsctl delete serverpool

Removes a server pool from the Oracle Clusterware configuration.

Syntax

crsctl delete serverpool server_pool_name [server_pool_name [...]] [-i]

See Also:

"How Server Pools Work" for more information about server pools and server pool attributes

Usage Notes

  • The server_pool_name parameter is required

    . Use spaces to delimit multiple server pool names.
  • If you specify -i, then the command fails if Oracle Clusterware cannot process the request immediately.

  • Do not use this command for any server pools with names that begin with ora because these server pools are Oracle server pools.

  • While you can use this command in either environment, it is only useful in the Oracle RAC environment.

Example

To delete a server pool, run the following command as root or the Oracle Clusterware installation owner:
# crsctl delete serverpool sp1

crsctl eval add serverpool

Predicts the effects of adding a server pool without making changes to the system.

This command may be useful to cluster administrators.

Syntax

crsctl eval add serverpool server_pool_name [-file file_path | -attr "attr_name=attr_value[,...]"]
    [-admin [-l level [-x] [-a]] [-explain] [-f]

Parameters

Table E-79 crsctl eval add serverpool Command Parameters

Parameter Description
server_pool_name

Specify a short, descriptive name for the server pool.

-file file_path

Specify a fully-qualified path to an attribute file to define the server pool.

-attr "attr_name=attr_value[,...]"

Alternatively, specify the name of a server pool attribute for the server pool you are adding preceded by the -attr flag, followed by a value for the server pool attribute.

Note: The attr_name=attr_value name-value pairs must be enclosed in double quotation marks (""). Multiple name-value pairs must be separated by commas. For example:

-attr "MAX_SIZE=30,IMPORTANCE=3"

Server pool attributes include:

  • IMPORTANCE

  • MIN_SIZE

  • MAX_SIZE

  • SERVER_NAMES

  • PARENT_POOLS

  • EXCLUSIVE_POOLS

  • ACL

-admin [-l level] [-x] [-a]

If you specify this parameter, then CRSCTL displays output for the cluster administrator.

If you specify the -l parameter, then you can choose one of the following three output levels:

  • serverpools: Restricts the output to servers running in a server pool

  • resources: Restricts the output to resources running on servers in a server pool

  • all: Displays all available output

If you specify the -x parameter, then CRSCTL displays the differences.

If you specify the -a parameter, then CRSCTL displays all resources.

Note:To specify either the -l, -x, or -a parameters, or any combination of the three, you must specify the -admin parameter.

-explain Specify this parameter to display reasoned command evaluation information.
-f

If you specify this parameter, then CRSCTL predicts the effects of forcibly adding a server pool.

Example

The following example evaluates adding a server pool named sp1:

$ crsctl eval add serverpool sp1 -explain

Examples

Example E-9 Example 1

To display the full configuration of the server pool sp1:
$ crsctl status serverpool sp1 -f

NAME=spl
IMPORTANCE=1
MIN_SIZE=0
MAX_SIZE=-1
SERVER_NAMES=node3 node4 node5
PARENT_POOLS=Generic
EXCLUSIVE_POOLS=

crsctl query socket udp

Verifies that a daemon can listen on a specified address and port.

Syntax

crsctl query socket udp [-address address] [-port port]

Parameters

Table E-86 crsctl query socket udp Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-address address

Specify the IP address on which the socket is to be created. If you do not specify an address, then CRSCTL assumes the local host as the default.

-port port

Specify the port on which the socket is to be created. If you do not specify a port, then CRSCTL assumes 53 as the default.

Usage Notes

You must run this command as root to verify port numbers less than 1024.

Examples

The command returns output similar to the following:
$ crsctl query socket udp

CRS-10030: could not verify if port 53 on local node is in use

# crsctl query socket udp

CRS-10026: successfully created socket on port 53 on local node
The first of the preceding two commands was not run as root, and in both commands no port was specified, so CRSCTL assumed the default, 53, which is less than 1024. This condition necessitates running the command as root.
$ crsctl query socket udp -port 1023

CRS-10030: could not verify if port 1023 on local node is in use

# crsctl query socket udp -port 1023

CRS-10026: successfully created socket on port 1023 on local node

Similar to the first two examples, the first of the preceding two commands was not run as root, and, although a port number was specified, it is still less than 1024, which requires root privileges to run the command.

In this last example, a port number greater than 1024 is specified, so there is no need to run the command as root:
$ crsctl query socket udp -port 1028

CRS-10026: successfully created socket on port 1028 on local node

crsctl start testdns

Starts a test DNS server that will listen on a specified IP address and port.

The test DNS server does not respond to incoming packets but does display the packets it receives. Typically, use this command to check if domain forwarding is set up correctly for the GNS domain.

Syntax

crsctl start testdns [-address address [-port port]] [-once] [-v]

Parameters

Table E-87 crsctl start testdns Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-address address

Specify a server address in the form IP_address/netmask[/interface_name].

-port port

The port on which the server listens. If you do not specify a port, then it defaults to port 53.

–once

Specify this parameter to indicate that the DNS server should exit after it receives one DNS query packet.

–v

Verbose output.

Example

To start a test DNS server on the local server, run the command similar to the following:
$ crsctl start testdns -address 192.168.29.218 -port 63 -v

crsctl status testdns

Queries the test DNS server running on a specified address and local host name.

Syntax

crsctl status testdns [-server DNS_server_address] [-port port] [-v]

Parameters

Table E-88 crsctl status testdns Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-server DNS_server_address

Optionally, you can specify the DNS server address for which you want to check the status.

-port port

Optionally, you can specify the port on which the DNS server listens. If you do not specify a port, then it defaults to port 53.

–v

Verbose output.

Parameter Description
+asm_disk_group

Specify the Oracle ASM disk group (preceded by a plus sign (+))where you want to locate the voting file.

path_to_voting_disk [...]

Alternatively, you can specify a space-delimited list of voting file paths for voting files that reside outside of Oracle ASM.

Usage Notes

  • You must be root, the Oracle Clusterware installation owner, or a member of the Administrators group to run this command.

  • Specify to replace a voting file in either an Oracle ASM disk group or in some other storage device.

  • You can run this command on any node in the cluster.

Examples

Example E-12 Example 1

To replace a voting file that is located within Oracle ASM:

# crsctl replace votedisk +diskgroup1

Example E-13 Example 2

To replace a voting file that is located on a shared file system:

# crsctl replace votedisk /mnt/nfs/disk1 /mnt/nfs/disk2

Oracle Restart Environment CRSCTL Commands

You can only use these commands in the Oracle Restart environment.

The commands listed in this section control Oracle High Availability Services. These commands manage the Oracle High Availability Services stack in the Oracle Restart environment, which consists of the Oracle High Availability Services daemon (ohasd), Oracle ASM (if installed), and Cluster Synchronization Services (if Oracle ASM is installed). These commands only affect the local server on which you run them.

Note:

Oracle does not support using crs_* commands in an Oracle Restart environment.

Each server in the cluster is in one of two possible states:

  • The whole stack is up, which means that Oracle High Availability Services is active

  • The whole stack is down, which means that Oracle High Availability Services is inactive

crsctl query has releaseversion

Displays the release version of the Oracle Clusterware software that is stored in the binaries on the local node.

Syntax

crsctl query has releaseversion

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
Oracle High Availability Services release version on the local node is [12.2.0.1.0]

crsctl query has softwareversion

Displays the software version on the local node.

Syntax

crsctl query has softwareversion [server_name]

Usage Notes

If you do not provide a server name, then Oracle Clusterware displays the version of Oracle Clusterware running on the local server.

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
Oracle High Availability Services version on the local node is [12.2.0.1.0]

crsctl start has

Starts Oracle High Availability Services on the local server.

Syntax

crsctl start has [-nowait] [-noautostart] [-wait]

Usage Notes

  • Use the -nowait parameter to skip waiting for Oracle High Availability Services to start.
  • Use the -noautorestart parameter to start only Oracle High Availability Services.
  • Use the -wait parameter to wait for Oracle High Availability Services to start.

Example

To start Oracle High Availability Services on the local server:
# crsctl start has

crsctl stop has

Stops Oracle High Availability Services on the local server.

This command attempts to gracefully stop resources managed by Oracle Clusterware while attempting to stop Oracle High Availability Services.

Syntax

crsctl stop has [-f]

Usage Notes

If any resources that Oracle Clusterware manages are still running after you run the crsctl stop has command, then the command fails. Use the -f parameter to unconditionally stop all resources and stop Oracle High Availability Services.

Example

To stop Oracle High Availability Services on the local server:
# crsctl stop has

Troubleshooting and Diagnostic Output

You can use crsctl set log commands as the root user to enable dynamic debugging for Cluster Ready Services (CRS), Cluster Synchronization Services (CSS), and the Event Manager (EVM), and the clusterware subcomponents.

You can dynamically change debugging levels using crsctl debug commands. Debugging information remains in the Oracle Cluster Registry (OCR) for use during the next startup. You can also enable debugging for resources.

This section includes the following topics:

Dynamic Debugging Using crsctl set log

Setting log levels for Oracle Clusterware.

Syntax

crsctl set log module_name "component1=level1,..."

Usage Notes

  • You can set log levels for various components of the following modules:

    • mdns: Multicast domain name server
    • gpnp: Grid Plug and Play service
    • css: Cluster Synchronization Services
    • crf: Cluster Health Monitor
    • crs: Cluster Ready Services
    • ctss: Cluster Time Synchronization Service
    • evm: Event Manager
    • gipc: Grid Interprocess Communication

    Use the crsctl lsmodules command to obtain a list of components for each module.

  • You can specify multiple component name/log level pairs in a comma-delimited list enclosed in double quotation marks ("").

  • Separate component name/log level pairs with an equals sign (=) in Oracle Clusterware 11g release 2 (11.2.0.3), and later. Previous Oracle Clusterware versions used a colon (:).

  • The log_level is a number from 1 to 5 that sets the log level for the component or resource, where 1 is the least amount of log output and 5 provides the most detailed log output. The default log level is 2.

Example

To set log levels for the CRSRTI and CRSCOMM components of the CRS module:

$ crsctl set log crs "CRSRTI=1,CRSCOMM=2"

Component Level Debugging

You can use crsctl set log and crsctl set trace commands as the root user to enable dynamic debugging for the various Oracle Clusterware modules.

Enabling Debugging for Oracle Clusterware Modules
You can enable debugging for Oracle Clusterware modules and their components, and for resources, by setting environment variables or by running the crsctl set log command.

Use the following syntax to enable debugging for various Oracle Clusterware modules:

crsctl set {log | trace} module_name "component:debugging_level[,...]"

Run the crsctl set command as the root user, and supply the following information:

  • module_name: Specify the name of one of the following modules:

    • mdns: Multicast domain name server
    • gpnp: Grid Plug and Play service
    • css: Cluster Synchronization Services
    • crf: Cluster Health Monitor
    • crs: Cluster Ready Services
    • ctss: Cluster Time Synchronization Service
    • evm: Event Manager
    • gipc: Grid Interprocess Communication
  • component: Specify the name of a component for one of the modules. See Table E-91 for a list of all of the components.

  • debugging_level: Specify a number from 1 to 5 to indicate the level of detail you want the debug command to return, where 1 is the least amount of debugging output and 5 provides the most detailed debugging output. The default debugging level is 2.

The following examples show how to enable debugging for the various modules:

  • To enable debugging for Oracle Clusterware:

    # crsctl set log crs "CRSRTI:1,CRSCOMM:2"
    
  • To enable debugging for OCR:

    # crsctl set log crs "CRSRTI:1,CRSCOMM:2,OCRSRV:4"
  • To enable debugging for EVM:

    # crsctl set log evm "EVMCOMM:1"
  • To enable debugging for resources

    # crsctl set log res "resname:1"

To obtain a list of components that can be used for debugging, run the crsctl lsmodules command, with the following syntax:

$ crsctl lsmodules {mdns | gpnp | css | crf | crs | ctss | evm | gipc}

Note:

You do not have to be the root user to run the crsctl lsmodulues command.

Table E-91 shows the components for the CRS, CSS, and EVM modules, respectively. Note that some component names are common between the CRS, EVM, and CSS daemons and may be enabled on that specific daemon. For example, COMMNS is the NS layer and because each daemon uses the NS layer, you can enable this specific module component on any of the daemons to get specific debugging information.

Enabling Debugging for Oracle Clusterware Resources

You can enable debugging for Oracle Clusterware resources by running the crsctl set log command, using the following syntax:

crsctl set log res "resource_name=debugging_level"

Run the crsctl set log command as the root user, and supply the following information:

  • resource_name: The name of the resource to debug.

  • debugging_level: A number from 1 to 5 to indicate the level of detail you want the debug command to return, where 1 is the least amount of debugging output and 5 provides the most detailed debugging output.

    Note:

    After you resolve an issue that required additional debugging, you can reset the debug level to default, as follows:
    # crsctl set log crs resource_name=default

To obtain a list of resources that can be used for debugging, run the crsctl status resource command.

Example

To generate a debugging log for the VIP resource on node1, issue the following command:

# crsctl set log res "ora.node1.vip:1"
