causes the ORA-15124 error:
ORA-15124: ASM file name 'XXX'
contains an invalid alias name
Answer: The oerr utility shows
this for the ORA-15124 error:
ORA-15124: ASM file
name 'string' contains an invalid alias name
Cause: A file name was specified which did not
contain a valid ASM alias name. The ASM alias name, if
present, follows immediately after the diskgroup name, in
place of the ASM file number. It must be preceded by a
slash, start with an alphabetic character, and consist of up
to 48 characters which are alphabetic, numeric, or the
characters '$', '_', '-', or '#". A space can separate two
parts of an alias name.
Correct the file name specification.
As we see, the ORA-15124 is caused by an invalid file
