ASMLIB INSTALLATION AND CREATING ASM DISKS USING ASMLIB

Posted by ssgottik on 20/10/2013

 REFERANCE : Doc ID 580153.1

There are two different methods to configure ASM on Linux:

ASM with ASMLib I/O: This method creates all Oracle database files on raw block devices managed by ASM using ASMLib calls. RAW devices are not required with this method as ASMLib works with block devices.
ASM with Standard Linux I/O: This method creates all Oracle database files on raw character devices managed by ASM using standard Linux I/O system calls. You will be required to create RAW devices for all disk partitions used by ASM.

You can download the ASMLIB rpm’s from below URL:

STEP 01: LOG IN AS ROOT USER AND INSTALL THE RPMS

[root@node1 ASMLIB]# rpm -Uvh oracleasm-2.6.18-164.el5-2.0.5-1.el5.i686.rpm \

> oracleasmlib-2.0.4-1.el5.i386.rpm \
> oracleasm-support-2.1.8-1.el5.i386.rpm

STEP 02: CONFIGURE ASMLIB


[root@node1 ASMLIB]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm configure
Configuring the Oracle ASM library driver.

This will configure the on-boot properties of the Oracle ASM library
driver. The following questions will determine whether the driver is
loaded on boot and what permissions it will have. The current values
will be shown in brackets (‘[]’). Hitting <ENTER> without typing an
answer will keep that current value. Ctrl-C will abort.

Default user to own the driver interface []: oracle
Default group to own the driver interface []: dba
Start Oracle ASM library driver on boot (y/n) [n]: y
Scan for Oracle ASM disks on boot (y/n) [y]: y
Writing Oracle ASM library driver configuration: done
Initializing the Oracle ASMLib driver: [ OK ]
Scanning the system for Oracle ASMLib disks: [ OK ]

STEP 03 :CREATE ASM DISK 

[root@node1 ASMLIB]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm listdisks
[root@node1 ASMLIB]#
[root@node1 ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm createdisk VOL1 /dev/sdb1
Marking disk “VOL1” as an ASM disk: [ OK ]
[root@node1 ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm createdisk VOL2 /dev/sdc1
Marking disk “VOL2” as an ASM disk: [ OK ]
[root@node1 ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm createdisk VOL3 /dev/sdd1
Marking disk “VOL3” as an ASM disk: [ OK ]
[root@node1 ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm createdisk VOL4 /dev/sde1
Marking disk “VOL4” as an ASM disk: [ OK ]
[root@node1 ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm createdisk VOL5 /dev/sdf1
Marking disk “VOL5” as an ASM disk: [ OK ]
[root@node1 ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm listdisks
VOL1
VOL2
VOL3
VOL4
VOL5
[root@node1 ~]#
