OHASD Fails To Start RAC Components…Or..”Please Continue,Sir”!

On Oracle 11.2.0.4, when a node crashes, and the storage disks are a bit late to the party (as being the cause of the crash!), when starting OHASD the manual way, it can happen it says it’s starting, kicks in “reboot” mode…and does nothing else..

Root cause is easy to find on Google, when the cause is known.

When having this issue: stop and start the following script:

/etc/init.d/gcstartup

This script can cause the /etc/init.d/ohasd script to hang..

It’s a short hint, but sometimes short hints can help out in a pinch..

My experiences touches lot of Oracle products like Forms and Reports 9/10, JDAPI, Application Server, Weblogic Fusion and of course: Oracle Enterprise Databases, JavaFX, Swing and other Java components.
