When adding Oracle Database to cluster configuration "Pacemaker" the following errors could be reported in system's log: 

WARNING: Unable to login as "C##OCFMON", using "sysdba" user instead 
ERROR: monprofile must start with C## for container databases

which result in Oracle Listener and Oracle Database resource agents failing to startup. 


To avoid above errors, Oracle resource need to be configured with following two options:

monuser="C##OCFMON" monprofile="C##MONPROFIL"


Oracle Monitor user is not being created correctly for being used in Oracle Container Database. Also, monitor user's profile need to start with C## for container database. Not defining monprofile parameter will fallback to default value. 

Additional Information

Oracle Resource Agent will create monitor user as well monitor profile if they are not exists. Keeping them to default values doesn't work with new Oracle Multitenant "Container" Database. 

Default values are: 
monuser : "OCFMON"
monprofile : "OCFMONPROFILE"

So, pacemaker configuration should looks like following: 

primitive lsn-oracle oralsnr \
params sid=orcl 
primitive oracle-db oracle \
params sid=orcl home="/opt/oracle/SW/database" user=oracle monuser="C##OCFMON" monprofile="C##MONPROFIL"
