HI,1 person found this helpful
What is your kernel version ? ( try uname -rm)
What is your oracleasmlib version ?
ASMLib kernel driver version must be the match your kernel version.
If not try to download the exact version and try again.
Hello. Thanks a lot for replying. OEL 5.6 comes with 2 kernels: uek and red hat
I have chosen to use red hat kernel for 64-bit. I run the following command:
[root@rac1 /]# uname -rm
I have downloaded 4 files for this version of kernel from
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/linux/downloads/rhel5-084877.html as below:
I have installed the 4 files and got the error messages for the first 2 files as below:
[root@rac1 /]# rpm -ivh /home/oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5xen-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
Error: Failed dependencies: kernel-xen=2.6.18-238.el5 is needed by oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5xen-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
[root@rac1 /]# rpm -ivh /home/oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5debug-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
Error: Failed dependencies: kernel-debug=2.6.18-238.el5 is needed by oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5debug-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
The last 2 files have been installed successfully. But when reboot Oracle Linux Server-Base 2.6.18-238.el5, I still see :
"Initializing ASMLib driver: FAILED."
[root@rac1 /]#/etc/init.d/oracleasm configure -i
Its output "initializing Oracle ASMLib driver: OK "
My questions are:
Does the issue OS "Initializing Oracle ASMLib driver: FAILED" have effect later ? Do we need to solve it ?
Hello. After edit kernel parameters, OS "Initializing Oracle ASMLib driver: OK" .
The issue is solved. Thanks.
Nice to hear :)
