How to Change Hostname of a Standalone Oracle Restart ( ASM )

Hi,

I will explain How to Change Hostname of a Standalone Oracle Restart ( ASM ) in this article.

 

If you don’t know what is the ASM ( Automatic Storage Management ), you should read following article before this.

 

Sometimes Hostname can be requested to be changed on where Oracle ASM is installed,  in which case there are steps to be taken on Oracle ASM and HAS ( High Availability Services ). Any database which ASM is not installed, you can change the hostname, then reboot and register and open the listener. However, when Oracle ASM is installed for database, some configurations are required.

Now let’s explain them step by step below.

 

Set ASM Profile and go to $ORACLE_HOME/crs/install directory.

 

[root@deveci ~]# . oraenv
ORACLE_SID = [root] ? +ASM
The Oracle base has been set to /u01/app/oracle
[root@deveci ~]#
[root@deveci ~]#
[root@deveci ~]# cd /u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/grid/crs/install
[root@deveci install]#
[root@deveci install]#

 

 

Execute roothas.pl script and deconfigure Oracle Restart and High Availability Services

 

[root@deveci install]# ./roothas.pl -deconfig -force
Using configuration parameter file: ./crsconfig_params
CRS-4639: Could not contact Oracle High Availability Services
CRS-4000: Command Stop failed, or completed with errors.
CRS-4639: Could not contact Oracle High Availability Services
CRS-4000: Command Delete failed, or completed with errors.
CLSU-00100: operating system function: opendir failed with error data: 2
CLSU-00101: operating system error message: No such file or directory
CLSU-00103: error location: scrsearch1
CLSU-00104: additional error information: cant open scr home dir scls_scr_getval
CRS-4639: Could not contact Oracle High Availability Services
CRS-4000: Command Stop failed, or completed with errors.

Change hostname in this step. I have changed my hostname from deveci to MehmetSalih in the /etc/hosts and /etc/sysconfig/network files.

[root@deveci ~]$ cat /etc/hosts
192.168.56.75 deveci deveci.localdomain

[root@deveci ~]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network
NETWORKING_IPV6=no
NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=deveci.localdomain
NOZEROCONF=yes

 

 

Reboot server and then check Hostname.

 

[root@MehmetSalih ~]$ cat /etc/hosts
192.168.56.75 MehmetSalih  MehmetSalih .localdomain



[root@MehmetSalih ~]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network
NETWORKING_IPV6=no
NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=MehmetSalih.localdomain
NOZEROCONF=yes

 

 

Set ASM Profile and go to  $ORACLE_HOME/crs/install directory. Execute roothas.pl script and configure High Availability Services again.

 

[root@MehmetSalih install]# ./roothas.pl
Using configuration parameter file: ./crsconfig_params
LOCAL ADD MODE
Creating OCR keys for user 'oracle', privgrp 'oinstall'..
Operation successful.
LOCAL ONLY MODE

CRS-4123: Oracle High Availability Services has been started.
2018/09/27 10:56:57 CLSRSC-327: Successfully configured Oracle Restart for a standalone server

 

 

Change Auto Start parameter of ora.cssd ( Cluster Syncronization Services Daemon ) as 1 like following.

 

[root@MehmetSalih install]# crsctl modify resource "ora.cssd" -init -attr "AUTO_START=1"
[root@MehmetSalih install]#
[root@MehmetSalih install]#

 

 

Stop Oracle High Availability Services like following.

 

[root@MehmetSalih install]# crsctl stop has
CRS-2791: Starting shutdown of Oracle High Availability Services-managed resources on 'MehmetSalih'
CRS-2673: Attempting to stop 'ora.evmd' on 'MehmetSalih'
CRS-2677: Stop of 'ora.evmd' on 'MehmetSalih' succeeded
CRS-2793: Shutdown of Oracle High Availability Services-managed resources on 'MehmetSalih' has completed
CRS-4133: Oracle High Availability Services has been stopped.
[root@MehmetSalih install]#

 

Start Oracle High Availability Services like following.

[root@MehmetSalih install]# crsctl start has
CRS-4123: Oracle High Availability Services has been started.
[root@MehmetSalih install]#

 

 

Now you can startup Oracle ASM Instance like following.

 

[oracle@MehmetSalih dbs]$ sqlplus / as sysasm
