Manipulating ASM on Solaris

Hameed, Amir


I am trying to add an ASM disk group on Solaris 9. The ASM instance is
based on I already have the raw partitions created and I have
already validated that the raw partitions are working fine by adding one
of the raw volumes to a tablespace on another instance running on the
same server. When I issue the command to add a disk group in the ASM
instance, I am getting the following error:

Show parameter asm_diskstring
asm_diskstring               string

create diskgroup DATA
external redundancy disk '/dev/vx/dsk/ux016_RAW/volraw_10'

create diskgroup DATA external redundancy disk
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-15018: diskgroup cannot be created

ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status
SVR4 Error: 25: Inappropriate ioctl for device
Additional information: 16

I had no issues doing the same activity on Linux. Is there some special
configuration needed for the raw volumes created for ASM on Solaris? Is
anyone already using ASM on Solaris 9?

Any help will be appreciated.
