    asmlib and oracleasm permission question for 11gr2 RAC install

      Dear All,

      I am trying to install 11G RAC on 2 oracle linux 6 machines (it is 2 virtual machines but I hope the principle applied).

      I use asmlib package to create sharable disk.

      I encounter a lot of user/group permission issue, so I decide to use oracle:oinstall to install my grid software.

      Here are my questions:

      1. when run oracleasm configuration -iDefault user to own the driver interface []: oracle
      Default group to own the driver interface []: dba <<<<<<<<<< what group should I use? I see people use oinstall, dba...

      2. after mounting /dev/oracleasm directory by using /usr/sbin/oracleasm init, what directory permission should I set?
      it is root:root after mount.

      I tried to run installer for grid, if I don't change /dev/oracleasm to 766, the ASM disks don't even show up.

      Any suggestions?
