Port conflict with “Oracle Remote Method Invocation (ORMI)” during Grid Infrastructure install

After years of installing Grid Infrastructures, today I have got for the first time an error on something new:

Looking at the logs (which I do not have now as I removed them as part of the failed install cleanup 🙁 ), the error is generated by the cluster verification utility (CVU) on this check:

The components verified by the CVU can be found inside $ORACLE_HOME/cv/cvdata/. In my case, precisely:

This check is critical, so the install fails.

In my case the port was used by mcollectived.

The port has been taken dynamically, and previous runs of CVU did not encounter the problem.

A rare port conflict that might happen when configuring GI 🙂

  1. So what did you do to resolve this? I got the same error and simply killed the processes….

  2. Depending on what process holds the port, the solution might be different. If it is a port taken dynamically by non-critical process (like mcollectd in my case), killing it is the good solution.
