|Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Service for Oracle Guide Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0|
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.
When you run Oracle Universal Installer, you have the option to configure and install Oracle ASM and create disk groups. For detailed information on installing and configuring Oracle ASM, see the Oracle documentation corresponding to the Oracle database version you are using.
Note - Before starting the Oracle Universal Installer, ensure that the Oracle Solaris library/motif package is installed.
For zone clusters, also ensure that the group/system/solaris-large-server package is installed.
Note - Set up and configure the file system, where the Oracle ASM ORACLE_HOME resides, before performing the Oracle ASM installation. Use only a local file system for the Oracle ASM home.
