Information in this document applies to any platform.
- For 18.104.22.168 and above, it can happen every 6 hours since ora.cvu resource is executed at that interval
- As "-getfileinfo" is called in a few different place, CVU can generate various errors but always with same error string "GetFileInfo command failed"
PRVF-4175 : OCR config file "/var/opt/oracle/ocr.loc" check failed on the following nodes:
racnode1:GetFileInfo command failed.
PRVF-4178 : Check for OCR location "/ocrvd/clu1/ocr" failed on the following nodes:
racnode1:GetFileInfo command failed
bug 9771737 - Core dump occurs if a non-existent file name is specified, fixed in 22.214.171.124
$ /tmp/CVU_126.96.36.199.0_oracle/exectask.sh -getfileinfo non-exist-file
bug 11816441 - Core dump happens when calling -getfileinfo, affects Solaris only, fixed in 188.8.131.52
The recommended solution is to apply patch set and patch set updates. If patch is not available, and ora.cvu keeps generating core, the workaround is to stop and disable the resource as grid user:
$ $GRID_HOME/bin/srvctl stop cvu
$ $GRID_HOME/bin/srvctl disable cvu
