Hi Riyaj, Yes, The page number of the installation guide .. I'm reading the Oracle Grid Infrastratucture Installation Guide 11gR2 for linux. Chapter 3 -- configuring storage -- pages 3-18 thru 3-20. Thanks again.

You might create a third disk group for FRA and so on.     Also, minimal installation can be done with just one disk group too, probably, not a preferred solution for a production environment.
