Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax ASM_DISKGROUPS = diskgroup [, diskgroup ] ...
Default value There is no default value.
Range of values Comma-separated list of strings, up to 30 characters
Oracle RAC Multiple instances can have different values.


This parameter may only be specified in an Oracle Automatic Storage Management (Oracle ASM) instance.

ASM_DISKGROUPS specifies a list of disk group names that an Oracle ASM instance mounts when the ALTER DISKGROUP ALL MOUNT statement is issued. The Oracle ASM instance startup process executes ALTER DISKGROUP ALL MOUNT unless the NOMOUNT startup option is specified.

Oracle ASM automatically adds a disk group to this parameter when the disk group is successfully created or mounted, and automatically removes a disk group from this parameter when the disk group is dropped or dismounted.

Issuing the ALTER DISKGROUP...ALL MOUNT or ALTER DISKGROUP...ALL DISMOUNT command does not affect the value of this parameter.

Supporting Up to 511 Disk Groups for an Oracle ASM Instance

In Oracle Database 12c, Oracle ASM supports up to 511 disk groups for an Oracle ASM instance.
