How To Configure ASM Disks In Windows

We assume that is already configured disk partitions, in this example we will see how to make the pattern for use the disks as a valid device for asm. We will focus on the graphical environment, to be more visual and simple do it from the command mode but use prompt is not complicated.

We must be in the media, where are the binaries for asm. In my case C: \ MEDIA_GRID\grid\asmtool.

It show me the disks seen by the operating system, in this case there are two formatted (NTFS) that can not be modify, and three if you can. We will always be indicated in the status field to “Candidate device” value.

To check the result. If we run the asmtoolg command, you will appear with name and status is “Stamped ASM device” what indicating that it is a device that can be used by a diskgroup.
