1.3.6.1 Mark ASM Candidate Disk Partitions

For OUI to recognize partitions as Oracle ASM disk candidates, you must log in as root and mark the disk partitions that Oracle ASM can use. To mark a disk for use by ASM, enter the following command syntax, where ASM_DISK_NAME is the name of the Oracle ASM disk group, and candidate_disk is the name of the disk device that you want to assign to that disk group:

oracleasm createdisk ASM_DISK_NAME candidate_disk
For example:

# oracleasm createdisk data1 /dev/sdf
