Hello Good people!
I have SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64) and grid infrastucture 11.2.
I have installed ASMlib, and made
***********************************
/etc/init.d/oracleasm status
Checking if ASM is loaded: yes
Checking if /dev/oracleasm is mounted: yes

/etc/init.d/oracleasm querydisk ASMDISK1
Disk "ASMDISK1" is a valid ASM disk
**********************************

Then i am trying install grid infrastucture, on step CONFIGURE ORACLE GRID nfrastucture for Standalone Server,
i can`t find my Disk "ASMDISK1"

Why grid infrastucture can`t find my Disk "ASMDISK1"?

    Hi,

    maybe wrong permissions?
    What did you use for oracleasm configure and what credentials (espially the group) did you specify during GI install?

    Regards
    Sebastian

    Hi,
    you can overwrite the header of the disk.
    #>dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/[DISK/LUN] bs=1024k count=50
