Exadata: ORA-07445: exception encountered: core dump [ocl_lock_get_waitobj_owner()+26] [11] [0x000000000] [] [] []

Hello all,

This is because the error is generated by an unpublished bug 17891564, as per described in MOS ORA-7445 [ocl_lock_get_waitobj_owner] on an Exadata storage cell (Doc ID 1906366.1).

It affects Exadata storage cell with image version between 11.2.1.2.0 and 11.2.3.3.0. The CELLSRV process crash with this error as per:

Cellsrv encountered a fatal signal 11
Errors in file /opt/oracle/cell11.2.3.3.0_LINUX.X64_131014.1/log/diag/asm/cell//trace/svtrc_11711_27.trc  (incident=257):
ORA-07445: exception encountered: core dump [ocl_lock_get_waitobj_owner()+26] [11] [0x000000000] [] [] []
Incident details in: /opt/oracle/cell11.2.3.3.0_LINUX.X64_131014.1/log/diag/asm/cell//incident/incdir_257/svtrc_11711_27_i257.trc

The CELLSRV process should auto restart after this error.

It affects Exadata storage cell and should not cause any ASM or database downtime, nor any service interruption for the (database) end users.

The fix for this is basically apply Exadata image version 11.2.3.3.1 or later.

See you next week!
