Lately, I’ve stumbled upon this error while trying to create ADVM volume equal 100Tb.
I’ve got applied “DATABASE BUNDLE PATCH: 184.108.40.206.170117 (24732088)” and this attributes for disk group.
ASMCMD> lsattr -G data -l Name Value access_control.enabled FALSE access_control.umask 066 appliance._partnering_type NULL au_size 1048576 cell.smart_scan_capable FALSE cell.sparse_dg allnonsparse compatible.advm 220.127.116.11 compatible.asm 18.104.22.168.0 compatible.rdbms 22.214.171.124 content.check FALSE content.type data disk_repair_time 48h failgroup_repair_time 48h idp.boundary auto idp.type dynamic logical_sector_size 512 phys_meta_replicated true sector_size 512 thin_provisioned FALSE
The documentation tells me that.
Oracle ASM supports file sizes greater than 128 TB in any redundancy mode when the COMPATIBLE.RDBMS disk group attribute is set greater than 10.1.
Also if I use “ASMCMD HELP” it confirms that the oracle documentation tells us.
ASMCMD> help volcreate -s size - Size of the volume to be created in units of K, M, G, T, P or E. The unit designation must be appended to the number specified. No space is allowed. For example: 20G The current maximum size of a volume is 127T.
But I couldn’t create ADVM volume greater than 47Tb.
SQL> /* ASMCMD */alter diskgroup data add volume 'local' size 100T Thu Feb 16 01:58:55 2017 ORA-15032: not all alterations performed ORA-15095: reached maximum ASM file size (48000 GB) for this disk group
The same situation when I’ve tried to increase already existing ADVM volume.
acfsutil size +10T /local acfsutil size: CLSU-00100: operating system function: ioctl failed with error data: 1 acfsutil size: CLSU-00101: operating system error message: Operation not permitted acfsutil size: CLSU-00103: error location: OI_0 acfsutil size: ACFS-03005: unable to resize /local
So, the reason is hiding in AU_SIZE (Allocation Unit Size). When you creating the disk group, usually you are not setting au_size with special size, and disk group is creating with default value 1M. For example, au_size=1M is working up to 47Tb volumes, au_size=4M is working up to 60Tb. In my situation for ADVM volume equal 100Tb, I have to use au_size=16M. Unfortunately, I haven’t enough disk spaces to finding all au_size’s. But I and Bane Radulovic (asmsupportguy.blogspot.com) is working to make changes in the Oracle Documentation to clear this situation.
