How to solve the issue "OEL 5.6 boot Oracle ASMLib driver: FAILED" ?

Folks,

Hello. I am installing Oracle 11gR2 RAC using 2 VMs (rac1 and rac2) whose OS are Oracle Linux 5.6 in VMPlayer.

I downloaded Oracle Linux 5.6 Media Pack for x86_64 (file name V24479-01) from https://edelivery.oracle.com/linux.

I have installed OEL 5.6 for VM rac1 and done the follows:

1) install rpm and oracleasm packages for rac1.
2) edit /etc/hosts to set up IP addresses for eth0 and eth1 for rac1 and rac2.
3) edit eth0 and eth1 for rac1 by using command [root@rac1 \]# neat

But when boot the OS, I see "initializing Oracle ASMLib driver: FAILED".

When configure Oracle ASM library driver by running the command:

[root@rac1 /]#/etc/init.d/oracleasm configure -i

Its output "initializing Oracle ASMLib driver: FAILED"

I think the reason is the OS cannot initialize Oracle ASMLib driver. My question is:

Do any folk understand how to solve the issue "OEL 5.6 boot Oracle ASMLib driver: FAILED" ?


Thanks.
