|Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Service for Oracle Real Application Clusters Guide|
Oracle ASM installation consists of installing and creating an Oracle ASM instance and configuring the required Oracle ASM disk groups. An Oracle ASM disk group is a collection of disk devices to store data files that Oracle ASM instances manage as a unit. Oracle ASM instances mount disk groups to make Oracle ASM files available to database instances.
Before You Begin
Ensure that the Oracle Clusterware software is already installed.
Ensure that the RAC framework is running on all nodes where the Oracle ASM instance is to be created.
Ensure that the file system where the Oracle ASM $ORACLE_HOME directory will reside is already created.
See the appropriate Oracle RAC installation documentation for instructions.
When you run Oracle Universal Installer, you have the option to configure and install Oracle ASM and create disk groups. For detailed information about installing and configuring Oracle ASM, see the Oracle documentation corresponding to the Oracle database version you are using.
