      I am using 11.2.0.1.0 on RHEL5. There is a database that is running on ASM. Database is properly working. Now I want to create additional asm disks . And, for I have configured new loop back devices. oracelasm craetedisk comamnd fails by saying:


      [oracle@host1 ~]$ oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK08 /dev/xvd8
      Writing disk header: done
      Instantiating disk: failed
      Clearing disk header: done
