How to troubleshoot CRSCTL REPLACE VOTEDISK error | Oracle RAC

It took some time to investigate why CRSCTL REPLACE VOTEDISK command is not working.

[oracle@node1 ~]$ crsctl replace votedisk VDISK
CRS-4264: The operation could not be validated
CRS-4000: Command Replace failed, or completed with errors.

When you get an error during VOTEDISK replacement, make sure you check the following items:

- Make sure the disk group you’re moving the voting disk is mounted on all nodes.
- Make sure the compatibility parameter is set to the version of Grid software you’re using.

You can change it using the following command:

alter diskgroup VDISK set attribute ‘compatible.asm’=’11.2′;
Query V$ASM_DISKGROUP view to make sure it’s the same with the rest disk groups and with the version of the Grid Software:

select group_number, name, compatibility, database_compatibility from v$asm_diskgroup;

- Check alert.log file of an ASM instance, any available trace file of the ASM instance. Check /var/log/messages file and trace the replace command usint strace file. See if you can catch any error from the log file:
[grid@node5 ~]strace crsctl replace votedisk VDISK
- Make sure you’ve an odd number of votedisk
- Make sure there’s enough space in the diskgroup
- Make sure disk permissions is correct
- Make sure you’re running the command using Grid Software owner
