Hi, guys
I met a problem when using dbca with ASM. I can't see any ASM disks while create a new ASM disk group.

Before installing, I have installed oracleasmlib related packages:
oracleasm-support 
oracleasm-2.6.18-194.el
oracleasm-2.6.18-194.el
oracleasm-2.6.18-194.el
oracleasm-2.6.18-194.el
oracleasm-2.6.18-194.el
oracleasmlib 


Here is the ASM instance pfile:
*.asm_diskstring='guilin:VOL*'
*.background_dump_dest='/u01/app/oracle/admin/+ASM/bdump'
*.core_dump_dest='/u01/app/oracle/admin/+ASM/cdump'
*.user_dump_dest='/u01/app/oracle/admin/+ASM/udump'
*.instance_type='asm'
*.large_pool_size=12M


The ASM instance can be started at nomount stage.
SQL> startup

The Cluster Manager is started:
[root@asm ~]# ps -ef | grep cssd

The ASM disks I have created:
[root@asm ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm listdisks
VOL1
VOL2
VOL3
[root@asm ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm scandisks
Scanning the system for Oracle ASMLib disks:               [  OK  ]

brw-rw---- 1 oracle dba 8, 65 03-09 01:20 /dev/oracleasm/disks/VOL3

I can't find where the problem is.
Could someone kindly help me find out the problem?
Thanks very much,

BR,Milo

I think your asm_diskstring could be the problem. As you are using the ASMlib, I would remove the parameter and rely on the default.

Hi, John
Thanks for helping.
Follow your tips, I am tried to use the full path of the disks
'/dev/oracleasm/disks/VOL*'

Then the disks show finally.

I am thinking if it's a bug related problem.

Thanks very much. Smile
BR,
Milo
