Creating the Fast Recovery Area Disk Group

Procedure to create the fast recovery area disk group.

  1. Go to the Grid_home/bin directory, and start Oracle ASM Configuration Assistant (ASMCA).

    For example:

    $ cd /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2.0/grid/bin
    $ ./asmca

    ASMCA opens at the Disk Groups tab.

  2. Click Create to create a new disk group.
    The Create Disk Groups window opens.
  3. Provide configuration information for the fast recovery area as prompted:

    In the Disk Group Name field, enter a descriptive name for the fast recovery area group. For example: FRA.

    In the Redundancy section, select the level of redundancy you want to use. For example: Normal

    In the Select Member Disks field, select eligible disks you want to add to the fast recovery area, and click OK.

    The Diskgroup Creation window opens and provides disk group creation status.

  4. When the Fast Recovery Area disk group creation is complete, click OK, and then click Exit.
