Hi All

I am having standalone (NON-RAC) box with Linux AS3 (Kernel Ver. and oracle 10G installed on it. It is having one database as ORCL. Now I went to configure ASM on it. For that I did the following activities.

mkdir -p /u03

mkdir -p /u03/asmdisks

dd if=/dev/zero of=/u03/asmdisks/disk0 bs=1024k number=100

dd if=/dev/zero of=/u03/asmdisks/disk1 bs=1024k number=100

dd if=/dev/zero of=/u03/asmdisks/disk2 bs=1024k number=100

dd if=/dev/zero of=/u03/asmdisks/disk3 bs=1024k number=100

chown -R oracle:oinstall /u03

chmod -R 777 /u03

Then I chose to create the database through DBCA. Where i gave database Sid as ASM and selected AUTOMATIC STORAGE MANAGEMENT for the storage. In the parameter of asm instance i set the parameter ASM_DISKSTRING as */u03/asmdisks/*'

ASM Instance gets started with this as when i do "ps -aux | grep +asm" then it shows the ASM processes.

Now when I create the diskgroup as DGROUP1 with normal redundancy, I am not able to see member disks which i have defined in ASM instance parameter "asm_diskstring". Though I tried to change the location of the ASM_DISKSTRING but all was in vain.

Is there any need to install ASM libraries on OS or any special service should be started on the OS?

Kindly Help as I am struck up in this past 5 days.
