ASMlib for Aix??

Postby jnrpeardba » Fri May 25, 2012 9:40 am

Hi Tim,

for this new RAC implementation on AIX, it will be using ASM for data storage. In my past builds on LInux for example,
I normally download and configure ASMlib before I proceed with the implementation. However after searching around, first I do not see a package for ASMLib on AIX and secondly many articles online indicate this is not required, without explaining why.

Do you have any ideas whether ASMLib is required as a pre-requisite for RAC on AIX systems?

Much appreciated

Hi.

ASMLib is a Linux only library, so it is not available for any other platform. That's the reason it is not mentioned for any other OSes. Even on Linux it is no necessary.

Cheers
