Oracle ASM on Linux

ASM RPMs would be required to configure ASM utility on Linux.

This demo has been done on RHEL 5 x86_64 bit.

1. Install RPMs.

#rpm -ivh oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
#rpm -ivh oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5debug-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
#rpm -ivh oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5xen-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
#rpm -ivh oracleasm-support-2.1.4-1.el5.x86_64.rpm

2. Configure ASM 

#/etc/init.d/oracleasm configure

Here we have to provide which user and group would be configured for ASM disk. Also it required to mention whether ASM driver should be auto-start or not.

Now ASM utility has been installed and configured on Linux.

You can also configure YUM Repository to install rpms for ASM utility.
