Applies to:

Oracle Database Configuration Assistant - Version 10.1.0.2 to 11.2.0.2 [Release 10.1 to 11.2]
Linux x86
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

DBCA is not listing any asmlib disks from its Configure Automatic Storage Management screen.

Please find screen shots attached.

Different Disk Discovery Path strings ('ORCL:*' or '/dev/oracleasm/disks/*' or even '/dev/sd*') tried, but no disk are listed.

Checks were done from asmlib side (/etc/init.d/oracleasm listdisks), does list all disks but DBCA is not able to list the disks.
