ASMlib for RHEL6

Dear all,

Oracle has not yet released ASMlib for RHEL6 yet.

Oracle’s policy about this
can be found in the metalink document id 1089399.1

Regarding ASMLIB Oracle mentioned in note 1089399.1 :

For RHEL 6, Oracle will provide ASMLib software and updates
only when configured with a kernel distributed by Oracle.

Oracle will not
provide ASMLib packages for kernels distributed by Red Hat as part of RHEL 6.

ASMLib updates will be delivered via Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN), which is
available to customers with Oracle Linux support.

ULN works with both Oracle
Linux or Red Hat Linux installations, but ASMLib usage will require replacing
any Red Ha
t kernel with a kernel provided by Oracle.


Instead of ASMLIB , We can use Udev for oracle 11G clusters. you can refer to ID 371814.1
