Oracle ASMLib Availability and Support

Updated 2015-01-30T17:38:43+00:00


  • Oracle ASM (Automated Storage Management) is a data volume manager for Oracle databases. ASMLib is an optional utility that can be used on Linux systems to manage Oracle ASM devices. ASM assists users in disk management by keeping track of storage devices dedicated to Oracle databases and allocating space on those devices according to the requests from Oracle database instances.
  • I have tried installing Oracle ASM using the RPMs downloaded from the Oracle site. However, when attempting to install them, I get this error:
[root@host tmp]# rpm -ivh oracleasmlib-2.0.4-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
warning: oracleasmlib-2.0.4-1.el6.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID ec551f03: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
        oracleasm >= 1.0.4 is needed by oracleasmlib-2.0.4-1.el6.x86_64
