I am new to HP-UX, and want to install and configure Oracle RAC 11g r2 on HP-UX 11.31 IA64. I have below five shared devices on which i want to configure ASM for grid installation;
On Host 1 :
bash-4.2# ioscan -m dsf
If i am not wrong Service Guard is not mandatory for this configuration, could you please tell me the step's to configure these five volumes as ASM volumes ? Also one more question ; Is SLVM configuration is mandatory to configure ASM ?
I just want to configure normal ASM devices like we do in Linux.

ASMLib is only available on Linux: so you cannot use it on HP-UX.
Did you read "Configuring Disk Devices for Oracle ASM section" from Oracle® Grid Infrastructure Installation Guide 11g Release 2 (11.2) for HP-UX
The easiest way should be to install Grid Software in the interactive way and let the installer:
1. discover your ASM disks
2. create the ASM instance
Note that in ASM there is no ASM volume: there are ASM disks and ASM disk groups made up of ASM disks.
I am little confused in this document;
Suppose i ran "ioscan -m dsf", and the out put is
So here for "Native" devices like;
we have to run below command's or for */dev/rdisk/disk183* ?
# chown grid:asmadmin /dev/rdsk/cxtydz
# chmod 660 /dev/rdsk/cxtydz
Please let me know i am missing something here.

Sorry but I cannot really help more.
If you have a Oracle support contract you can try to use documents mentioned in MOS note "RAC and Oracle Clusterware Best Practices and Starter Kit (HP-UX) [ID 811303.1]"
(although there are only documents for 10gR2 and 11gR1: 11gR2 is missing ... ).
If you know some Oracle Corp. employee or HP employee you may try to get access to http://www.hporaclectc.com which should have the right documentation named "cookbook".
You can find cookbook for RAC 11gR1 on HP-UX on RAC SIG site: http://www.oracleracsig.org/pls/apex/APEX_UTIL.COUNT_CLICK?p_url=RAC_SIG.download_my_file?p_file=1003667&p_id=1003667&p_cat=documents&p_user=nobody&p_company=994323795175833.
