RAC Attack - Oracle Cluster Database at Home/Setup ASM


  1. As the oracle user, use the oenv macro (from Ardent Performance Computing) to set your environment for the SID +ASM1. Then, type asmca to launch ASMCA.

    collabn1:/home/oracle[RAC1]$ oenv
    SIDs here are: grid +ASM1 
    ORACLE_SID = [RAC1] ? +ASM1
    The Oracle base for ORACLE_HOME=/u01/grid/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid_1
      is /u01/app/oracle
     
    collabn1:/home/oracle[+ASM1]$ asmca
    


  2. Make sure you're on the Disk Groups tab and then right-click on the DATA diskgroup and choose Edit Attributes.
