    asmlib, device paths not showing?

    885820

      Hi

       

      Iv just created a test system running 11.2.0.1  RAC on Linux:

      uname -a

      Linux collabn1.vm.ardentperf.com 2.6.18-238.el5 #1 SMP Tue Jan 4 15:24:05 EST 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

       

      Iv never actually worked with Oracle on Linux and am a bit confused with the following:

       

      I want to check the paths of the disks I have configured in the +DATA diskgroup im using:

       

      SQL> select group_number, name from v$asm_diskgroup;

      GROUP_NUMBER NAME
      ------------ ----------
                 1 BACKUP
                 2 DATA
                 3 FRA

       

      SQL> col path for a30
      SQL> col name for a10
      SQL> /

      GROUP_NUMBER NAME            LABEL                           PATH                             TOTAL_MB
      ------------ ---------- ------------------------------- ------------------------------ ----------
                 1                     BACKUP     BACKUP                       ORCL:BACKUP                       8189
                 2                     DATA          DATA                            ORCL:DATA                            8189
                 2                     DATA2        DATA2                          ORCL:DATA2                          8189
                 3                     DATA3        DATA3                          ORCL:DATA3                          16378

       

      collabn1:/home/oracle[+ASM1]$ asmcmd

      ASMCMD> lsdsk -G DATA

      Path

      ORCL:DATA

      ORCL:DATA2

      ASMCMD> exit

      collabn1:/home/oracle[+ASM1]$ /etc/init.d/oracleasm querydisk -p DATA

      Disk "DATA" is a valid ASM disk

      /dev/sdb1: LABEL="DATA" TYPE="oracleasm"

      collabn1:/home/oracle[+ASM1]$ /etc/init.d/oracleasm querydisk -p DATA2

      Disk "DATA2" is a valid ASM disk

       

      For the second disk DATA2 no information is shown for the device path.....?

       

      Any ideas why not?

       

      Any help would be appreciated
