Symptom #1]

1. This issue only happens with ASMLib installation on Linux server.

2. ASMLib is installed properly.

5. From ASM alert.log, ASM diskgroups are not mounted with ORA-15186 error.

6. On GRID installation, OUI does not show ASMLib devices and ASMLib devices are discoverable only with discovery string "/dev/oracleasm/disks/*".  In this case, it's impossible to check  v$asm_disk.header_status as Oracle ASM is not installed yet.
