srvctl enable volume

Enables Oracle Clusterware management for a specific volume or all volumes.

This command allows a volume device to be started by operating on the Oracle Clusterware resource for the volume. This command does not start the volume device, and is different from the SQL command ALTER DISKGROUP ENABLE VOLUME or the ASMCMD command volenable, because these two commands bring the volume device online, in a running state, making the volume device accessible.


This command is only available with Oracle Clusterware.

Syntax and Parameters

Use the srvctl enable volume command with the following syntax:

srvctl enable volume {-volume volume_name -diskgroup disk_group_name |
    -device volume_device}

Table A-64 srvctl enable volume Parameters

Parameter Description
-volume volume_name

Specify the name of the volume that you want to enable. This parameter is required.

-diskgroup disk_group_name

Specify the name of the disk group in which the volume that you want to enable resides.

-device volume_device

Usage Notes

  • You must specify a particular volume that you want to enable. You can specify a volume that resides in either a particular disk group or on a particular volume device.


The following example enables a volume named VOLUME1 that resides in a disk group named DATA:

$ srvctl enable volume -volume VOLUME1 -diskgroup DATA
