OL 6 RAC ASM lib - directory modified after reboot

Hi All,

Can someone tell me why this is happening.

I am installing 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?
