Have you looked to see if its in /dev/oracleasm/disks yet?

Can I assume you did the oracleasm createdisk to mark it as asm disk(I know i'm stating the obvious to you but someone else might benefit) :P

ASM not discovering disks after workaround for bug 6605620 Sent by:

Today is our lucky day. =)

We attempted to add a new LUN to our ASM, only to find that ASM no longer talks "properly" to our version of EMC. I am a bit miffed that Oracle thinks the problem is with EMC and has dismissed the bug from 2007. But, that aside. We forced the disk to be added with asmtool, however ASM does not discover the new disk. There are no relevant error messages in the alert.log. So... how do we add this disk to a diskgroup? The disk is named using the exact same formats that 4 pre-existing disks have (and which are in active use by ASM), and I know it is not an issue with asm_diskstring.

For those who are interested, the SRs are: 7486153.992
