This document will assist you with renaming virtual disks under a virtual machine to be used with ASM as well as setting permissions with the use of UDEV rules. In this document we will be using an OVM Guest as our example.

NOTE: This guide is only for virtual disks under a virtual machine (OVM Guests, etc). If you are presenting physical media to the virtual machine, for example HDD, LUNs, etc, or you are using a physical server, please search the knowledge base for the respective document matching your system/environment as this document does not apply to your system. Below are a just few example documents:
