Problems running root.sh

How to Proceed from Failed 11gR2 Grid Infrastructure (CRS) Installation (Doc ID 942166.1)

  • Identify cause of root.sh failure by reviewing logs in $GRID_HOME/cfgtoollogs/crsconfig and $GRID_HOME/log
  • Once cause is identified and problem is fixed, deconfigure and reconfigure with steps below – keep in mind that you will need wait till each step finishes successfully before move to next one:
Step 0: For 11.2.0.2 and above, root.sh is restartable.
  Once cause is identified and the problem is fixed, root.sh can be executed again 
  on the failed node. If it succeeds, continue with your planned installation procedure; 
  otherwise as root sequentially execute
      "$GRID_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.pl -verbose -deconfig -force"
  and 
      $GRID_HOME/root.sh on local node
  If it succeeds, continue with your planned installation procedure, otherwise proceed to 
  next step (Step 1) of the note.
  ....
  For  complete deconfiguration steps read note   942166.1.
