    11gR1 RAC Shared Disk Issue on re-boot

    jgabay Novice

      I'm setting up a test RAC environment with the following.

       

      WMware Server 2.0

      Host OS Windows 7

      Guest OS OEL 5.4

      Oracle ASMLib

       

      I have been able to do the initial install of the clusterware software on the 2 nodes.  My issue appears on reboot.  The ASM disks that I created using oracleasm command disappear.  As long as I don't reboot I'm fine. 

       

      Below is my latest configuration on the vmware side.  Any thoughts out there on how to get this to work?
