    Thank you!

    • Install of Clusterware fails while running root.sh on OL7 – ohasd fails to start (Document ID 1959008.1)

      Oracle Database – Standard Edition – Version to [Release 11.2 to 12.1]
      Linux x86-64

      Grid Install fails when running root.sh on OL7, this affects both Oracle Clusterware and Oracle Restart Installation.

      Rootcrs.log / roothas.log confirms that ohasd / crsd failed to start

      There is a known issue where OL7 expects to use systemd than initd for running processes and restarting them and root.sh does not handle this currently.

      This was reported in the following Unpublished Bug


      Because Oracle Linux 7 (and Redhat 7) use systemd than initd for starting / restarting processes and runs them as a service the current software install of both & will not succeed because the ohasd process does not start properly.

      In OL7 it needs to be set up as a service so the following step is required BEFORE you run root.sh when prompted

      1. As ROOT user

      Cd / etc / systemd / system /
      Touch ohasd.service

      Nb this should create a file called ohasd.service

      2. Edit the file ohasd.service and add the following text

      Description = Oracle High Availability Services
      After = syslog.target

      ExecStart = / etc / init.d / init.ohasd run> / dev / null 2> & 1 Type = simple
      Restart = always

      WantedBy = multi-user.target

      3. Run the following commands (as root):

      Systemctl daemon-reload
      Systemctl enable ohasd.service
      Systemctl start ohasd.service

      4. Now run root.sh from the Grid $ OH and it should succeed
