I just start to learn Oracle database, very inexperienced in Oracle.
I have a problem to create an ASM instance. My environment is SUSe Linux Enterprise 11 64 bit, I am trying to create an ASM instance 11.2.0
1. When I create ASM instance, I could not find ASM Disks, so an ASM Instance could not be created.
2. When I search the internet about how to create ASM disk, it seems that I need to login to ASM instance as ASMSYS, but I don't have an ASM instance is runing, so the ASM DISK groups could not be created.
I feel I am in a deadlock.
Could anybody help me?
You may have to configure the udev subsystem to set device permissions and configure the ASM diskstring parameter, or install Linux ASMLib, which takes care of both and more. Anyway, you will need to provide more details and probably do some homework to learn about basic concepts. To setup Oracle ASM isn't click and play.
