Re: ASM Disk


You do it with raw disk.

I recommend you learn how to do this without the gui (sam)

Basically, lvcreate,lvextend, change ownerhip to oracle user and don't do newfs.

I've not heard the greatest reports about Oracle ASM, you may find just regular raw disk without ASM is easier to grasp and complete.
