error ORA-27154: post/wait create failed - while starting ASM instance


Got the following issue while starting up ASM instance.

ORA-27154: post/wait create failed
ORA-27300: OS system dependent operation:semget failed with status: 28
ORA-27301: OS failure message: No space left on device
ORA-27302: failure occurred at: sskgpcreates

Cook Book:

Checked the sysctl.conf file and found the following entry

kernel.sem = 275  100

Updated the above with the following and executed command "sysctl -p"

kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 256

Started the ASM instance and it came up :)
