Yesterday i am installing Oracle 11g R2 ASM on windows server 2008 i use following steps to install.
1.installing windows 2008 server stand with os partition of 50gb.
2.I created 8 RAW partition of size 50g for ASM installation.
3.Next I Install Oracle 11g R2 Software only.
4.After that I Run asmtoolg from ORACLE_HOME\bin path.
5.I label all 8 drive using asmtoolsg.
6.Now i run dbca create db using ASM disk.
But DBCA unable to find ASM Group due this i unable complete database installation. Previously in Oracle 10g it's gives option to configure ASM group.
I am search on internet they told me use ASMCA to configure ASM group but when i run on command ASMCA it show command not found I also check in ORACLE_HOME\bin directory there is no any asmca(ASMCA missing) .
I am also try localconfig add it show same problem command not found I also check in ORACLE_HOME\bin directory
Kindly Help and guide me resolve this issue thanks in advance..............
Before installing Oracle Database (and execute DBCA), you should install Oracle Grid Infrastructure. ASM takes part of the Grid Infrastructure (in 11.2 it's a separate installation).
Please find enclosed a link to the Grid Installation Guide:
Hope this help.
