    To configure ASM disk you need to perform following steps:

    1. Find out kernel version of your OS using " *# uname -a*"

    2. Download related ASMlib rpms from OTN


    3. RPM like this:


    4. Install RPM using this command:

    # rpm -ivh --nodeps oracleasm*

    5. Configure ASMlib RPMs

    [root@host01 ~]# oracleasm configure -i
    Configuring the Oracle ASM library driver.

    Default user to own the driver interface [grid]: grid
    Default group to own the driver interface [asmdba]: asmadmin
    Start Oracle ASM library driver on boot (y/n) [y]: y
    Scan for Oracle ASM disks on boot (y/n) [y]: y
    Writing Oracle ASM library driver configuration: done

    [root@host01 ~]*#oracleasm exit*

    [root@host01 ~]*#oracleasm init*

    6. Create ASM disk using ASMlib:

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK01 /dev/sdb1

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK02 /dev/sdb2

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK03 /dev/sdb3

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK04 /dev/sdb5

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK05 /dev/sdb6

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK06 /dev/sdb7

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK07 /dev/sdb8

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK08 /dev/sdb9

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK09 /dev/sdb10

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK010 /dev/sdb11

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK011 /dev/sdb12

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK012 /dev/sdb13

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK013 /dev/sdb14

    oracleasm createdisk ASMDISK014 /dev/sdb15

    *7. Reload ASMlib driver:*

    [root@host01 ~]# oracleasm scandisks

    [root@host01 ~]# oracleasm listdisks
