ASM Installation

Oracle Automatic Storage Management installation (ASM) on Linux Steps

We’re here Installing ORACLE ASM in Linux Operation System via Virtual Box.

Important installation ASM

Important packages




1. oracleasm-support

2. kmod-oracleasm

3. rpm oracleasmlib

4. oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall (according to version)

5. oracle 11g r2 grid

First we need to go to etc yum repository

[root@asmqp ~]# cd /etc/yum.repos.d

So now we will install required libraries

Here need to edit yum public oracle 6 repository because we’re installing in Linux 6

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# vi public-yum-ol6.repo

Search it via /u4

You will get

Install it

[root@querypanelasm ~]# wget

[root@querypanelasm ~]# yum localinstall oracleasmlib-2.0.12-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# wget

Here we’re installing required asm libraries

[root@querypanelasm yum.repos.d]# wget

oracleasm-support installation

in oracle support installation they will ask you are you sure to continue need to type yes

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# yum install  oracleasm-support

Kmod installation

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# yum install kmod-oracleasm

Also need to install oracleasmlib

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# wget

Here we are installing oracleasm rpm packages

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# wget

Here we need to give the access permission

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# chmod 777 oracleasmlib-2.0.12-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

Also need to install asmlib support files

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# wget

RPM Packages installation method rpm –Uvh and filename 

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# rpm -Uvh oracleasmlib-2.0.12-1.el6.x86_64.rpm.1

If you have not used the “oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall” package to perform all prerequisites, you will need to manually perform the following setup tasks.

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# rpm -Uvh oracleasm-support-2.1.8-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# yum install

[root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# yum update

Here we’re use to install  preinstall

[root@asmqp ]# yum install oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall

Here change oracle user password

 [root@asmqp yum.repos.d]# passwd oracle

Here we need to disabled selinux

[root@asmqp ~]# vi /etc/selinux/config

Create new directory and give the access permission

[root@asmqp ~]# mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1

[root@asmqp ~] chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1

[root@asmqp ~]# mkdir -p /u01/app/grid/product/11.2.0/grid_1

[root@asmqp ~]# chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01/app/grid/product/11.2.0/grid_1

[root@asmqp ~]# chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01

[root@asmqp ~]# chown -R 775 /u01/app/oraInventory

[root@asmqp ~]# chmod -R 775 /u01

Here we can check oracleasm library have installed

[root@asmqp ~]# oracleasm

Here need to configure oracleasm

[root@asmqp ~]# oracleasm configure –i

Default user to own the driver interface []: oracle

Default group to own the driver interface []: oinstall

Start Oracle ASM library driver on boot (y/n)

Scan for Oracle ASM disks on boot (y/n) [y]: y

Writing Oracle ASM library driver configuration: done

[root@asmqp ~]# oracleasm init

Here scanning the disks

[root@asmqp ~]# oracleasm scandisks

Disk partition 

we need to create Disks so go to machine setting click on storage and click to create a new disk if you want to create more disk follow same steps

Whatever we can mention the disks name so check on attached screen i have mention NewVirtualDisk1 and 2

Now we have mention here disks creation process disk 1 and disk 2

[root@asmqp ~]# fdisk /dev/sdb

So here we have create a new disks

[root@asmqp ~]# oracleasm createdisk DATA1 ‘/dev/sdb1’

Now again creating disk 2

Disk two partition 

[root@asmqp ~]# fdisk /dev/sdc

[root@asmqp ~]# oracleasm createdisk DATA2 /dev/sdc1

After creation we can view created disks via /dev/oracleasm/disks or lisdisks

[root@asmqp ~]# oracleasm listdisks

Need to login oracle user

[root@asmqp ~]# su oracle

Transfer linux grid zip file via winSCP or direct download like curl  “url” –o filename

Need to download according to version now I am installing 11gr2 so I have select

here we have mention the access permission to grid file

[oracle@asmqp ~]$ chmod 777

After permission the color will be green

[oracle@asmqp ~]$ unzip

Now here we have unzip asm grid

So now need to login vi GUI window now we’re using MobaXterm

After unzip grid file we will ge grid folder in home directory so we will use to open the file in it there is a runInstaller so we need to run

[oracle@asmqp grid]$ ./runInstaller

After the command a new window will be open

Need to edit this library

[root@asmqp install]# cd /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid_1/crs/install/

my $UPSTART_OHASD_SERVICE = “oracle-ohasd”;
my $INITCTL = “/sbin/initctl”;

($status, @output) = system_cmd_capture (“$INITCTL start $UPSTART_OHASD_SERVICE”);
if (0 != $status)
error (“Failed to start $UPSTART_OHASD_SERVICE, error: $!”);
return $FAILED;

add this before # Start OHASD

Also need to add this line

[root@asmqp install]# vi /etc/init/oracle-ohasd.conf

[root@asmqp install]# ./ -deconfig -force -verbose

Need to be run both script into same mention file loca


  1. /u01/app/oraInventory/

[root@asmqp oraInventory]# ./

[root@asmqp grid_1]# ./

Now here successfully oracle ASM have installed 

We can check here in environment variable

Here we’re use to set the environment variable

[root@asmqp ~]# cat /etc/oratab

[root@asmqp ~]# . oraenv

We can check here asm is active

Crsctl owner of the root

(has) high availability services

[root@asmqp ~]# crsctl start has

[root@asmqp ~]# crsctl start has

    Usually I do not read post on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, very great post.
