    OL 6 RAC 11.2.0.3 ASM lib - directory modified after reboot

    User489552
      Hi All,

      Can someone tell me why this is happening.

      I am installing 11.2.0.3 grid software and want to created 2-node rac database on ol 6.3 hosted on 2 virtual machines using virtualbox on window 7 PC.

      I use asmlib to create my shared disk. and stored in /dev/oracleasm/disks/ directory.

      I installed the grid cluster software successfully and run the following commands to check the grid installation and seems OK.

      crsctl status res -t

      [root@c8rac1 ~]# crsctl check crs
      CRS-4638: Oracle High Availability Services is online
      CRS-4537: Cluster Ready Services is online
      CRS-4529: Cluster Synchronization Services is online
      CRS-4533: Event Manager is online
      [root@c8rac1 ~]# srvctl status asm
      ASM is running on demo2,demo1


      What I don't understand is after reboot, I found the /u01 /dev/oracleasm are modified.

      #cd /
      #ls -l
      drwxr-xr-x.   3 root oinstall  4096 Nov 12 22:33 u01
      #ls -l /dev/oracleasm
      drwxr-xr-x  4 root    root           0 Nov 15 17:17 oracleasm

      I following the installation guide and do the following:
      # mkdir -p /u01/app/11.2.0/grid
      # mkdir -p /u01/app/grid
      # chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01
      # mkdir /u01/app/oracle
      # chown oracle:oinstall /u01/app/oracle
      # chmod -R 775 /u01/

      So, which process has modified the original setting? Should I continue with database installation? or should I change back the original setting then install database?
