ERROR:-  ORA-27154, ORA-27300, ORA-27301 & ORA-27302

After rebooting one cluster node, ASM instance came up fine but database instance failed with:

SYS@xxxx > startup nomount
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

The semaphore settings caused problems.
It turned out the kernel settings were insufficient. 


cat /etc/sysctl.conf
kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128

This line needs to be changed to:

kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 256

Note the change of the last number from 128 to 256.

After that applying the settings is done as root with:

sysctl -p

After that  instances came up just fine.

SYS@MRA> startup nomount
ORACLE instance started.
