This issue has been solved. See solution.

Scenario: Two node Oracle RAC cluster

The node we  need to go for a reboot is CVM Master node.

Cluster have one fail over service group too. I have plan to switch-over to other running node. We do not anticipate outage

Please provide any pre checks need to be done before reboot of node in CVM cluster ( Oracle RAC)

I don't think there is much to precheck, but when rebooting, rather than just running "shutdown" with VCS running, I would:

  1. Run"hastop -local"
  2. Check other node is ok (for exampe, check that it is now the CVM master)
  3. Then reboot node.
