Last updated on NOVEMBER 11, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 to 11.2.0.4 [Release 11.2]
Oracle Database Cloud Schema Service - Version N/A and later
Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service - Version N/A and later

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

1. ASMCA can not "find" the new candidate partition by "show eligible".

2. The UDEV rule seems like no problem:

cat 99-oracle-asmdevices.rules

......
KERNEL=="sda1",BUS=="scsi",PROGRAM=="/sbin/scsi_id -g -u -d /dev/$parent",RESULT=="360a980004430753872244b6e4a376f70",NAME="data2",OWNER="grid", GROUP="asmadmin", MODE="0660"

 

3. The udev device could be found with right ownership and permission:

ls -l /dev |grep data
......
brw-rw---- 1 grid asmadmin 8, 1 Nov 1 09:36 data2

 

4. kfed can read the device without problem:

$ kfed read /dev/data2
