Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.0 and later
Linux x86-64


After installation of ASMLib packages on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, found the same oracleasm file is shown in /sbin and /usr/sbin directory.

# ls -l /sbin/oracleasm
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 16856 Jul 10 2014 /sbin/oracleasm
# ls -l /usr/sbin/oracleasm
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 16856 Jul 10 2014 /usr/sbin/oracleasm


and the 2 files looks same. For example,

# cmp -s /usr/sbin/oracleasm /sbin/oracleasm
# echo $?



oracleasm-support-* RPM package was installed on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7
