-- Warning while upgrading to 11g RAC --

Recently while upgrading to 11gR2 one of our RAC databases it failed while running ASMCA which is now part of grid infrastructure, we found that we were hitting the Bug: 9818657 (11.2 UPGRADE FROM 10.2 FAILED WHEN RUNNING ASMCA), the issue was that we had set in the bash_profile the ORA_CRS_HOME environment variable pointing to the old 10g environment, we removed the parameter from the bash_profile and that solved the issue.
