Error adding voting disk on grid installation

Hello together,

I am installing Oracle Grid Infratructure 11.2.0.3 on OEL 6.3
I reached the final step, running the root.sh. It succsessfully started the services but then I got this error:

Failed to create voting files on disk group CR.
Change to configuration failed, but was successfully rolled back.
CRS-4000: Command Replace failed, or completed with errors.
Voting file add failed
Failed to add voting disks at /opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/crsconfig_lib.pm line 6780.
+/opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/perl/bin/perl -I/opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/perl/lib -I/opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/crs/install /opt/oracle/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/rootcrs.pl execution failed+

CR Diskgroup is configured using oracleasm:

oracleasm createdisk CR /dev/sdb1

/dev/sdb1 is a partition and has been created ot the LUN /dev/sdb using fdisk.

Any idea what might be wrong? Any answers are highly appreciated. Thanks!

Here is part of logfile of the root.sh - tool. Meanwhile I tried deinstalling the clusterware and cleaning up, then I verified the server configuration with cluvfy and all was OK. I used also another Disk Group name. Same problem..
