Grid Infrastructure Software Installation – Part 6

This is the post being followed by my previous posts for ASM and ASM Disk Groups, all perquisites has been performed already, please follow my previous post for the steps.

This will contain step by step per GUI perspective:


Execute the runInstaller from the Grid Software:2

Skip Software updates.3

As we are planning to get this GRID configured for Single Instance, I selected for a Standalone Server.4

Language – English.5

For now we will be configuring only CRS, rest Disk Groups will be assigned using the ASMCA utility.6

Specify the password that’s suits your environment.7

We have already created required user for ASM, those will be picked up automatically if not then select the users as per above image.8

In this case if you will notice, ORACLE_BASE for GRID and directory to keep the GRID Software is different, it has done for a purpose, if you will try to configure GRID Software on top of GRID Oracle Base, Oracle Installer will report an warning, its up to you completely how you would like to continue. Create the directory for Grid Software to keep the files along with the GRID BASE, if all environment variables are set, then it will picked up by default.9

We are good with this configuration, press Yes.10

We can ignore swap memory related warning for TEST Instances, however you can consider this warning for your Production Installation.11

Press Yes.12Verify the installation and click on Install.13

Let the process move forward…14

Now, it asks to execute the script from root user, do that in next step and Press OK.15

Once you click on OK, it will move on to the next steps..1617

Click close, and verify the Cluster Status using the below command.18

Now for now we only have CRS Configured, we need to have two more disk groups – DATA and LOGS.

Execute ASMCA utility, make sure ORACLE_HOME for Grid is Configured.


So CRS is configured. Click on Create:19

Create a Disk Group – DATA and select the DATA from the below Disks which was configured during the configuration for ASM Disk Groups.20

Click OK and it will start the process of creating the Disk Group DATA.21

Once the Process is Done, you will get the below POP UP Message – Disk Group DATA Created. Click OK.22

So now we have two – DATA and CRS.23

Click on create and create Disk Group for LOG.24

Let the process create the Disk Group – LOG.25

Click OK and we are ready with 3 Disk Groups now.26

Verify once all 3.27

Click EXIT and Press Yes for the confirmation.28

So now we are all set now. Check from the back end too:


So we are good for now..

We will be creating the Database on top of this GRID.

Thanks for watching…
