Last updated on OCTOBER 22, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

During install of 11.2.0.2.0 Grid Infrastructure software, Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) displays no disks at all under STORAGE OPTION > CREATE ASM DISK GROUP.

Note: See attached screen shot

However:
* ASMLIB ('oracleasm listdisks', either from /usr/sbin or /etc/init.d directories) across all nodes, shows all ASM disks.
* Also kfod ('asm_diskstring=/dev/oracleasm/disks/* disks=all' or 'asm_diskstring=ORCL:* disks=all', or 'disks=all'), does show all the ASM disks
* Checked that no ORA* or TNS* OS environments set for the session that launched the runInstaller.
* OS owner and file permissions on these asmlib devices seem proper (oracle:dba and 660).
* The asmlib devices using emcpower multipath devices. From the contents of /etc/sysconfig/oracleasm, appears these are properly configured.
