    Asm configuration error

    I get following error when i'm configuring ASM.

    I'm using Enterprise Linux and Oracle 11.1.0.6.0

    Note:
    [root@RAC1 ~]# rpm -qa|grep asm
    oracleasm-2.6.9-78.0.0.0.1.EL-2.0.3-2
    oracleasm-support-2.0.3-2

    only these two packages in my server. should i have to install oracleasmlib??



    [root@RAC1 ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm configure
    Configuring the Oracle ASM library driver.

    This will configure the on-boot properties of the Oracle ASM library
    driver. The following questions will determine whether the driver is
    loaded on boot and what permissions it will have. The current values
    will be shown in brackets ('[]'). Hitting without typing an
    answer will keep that current value. Ctrl-C will abort.

    Default user to own the driver interface []: oracle
    Default group to own the driver interface []: dba
    Start Oracle ASM library driver on boot (y/n) [n]: y
    Fix permissions of Oracle ASM disks on boot (y/n) [y]: y
    Writing Oracle ASM library driver configuration: [ OK ]
    Loading module "oracleasm": Unable to load module "oracleasm"
    [FAILED]


    Kindly help me to solve this

    The oracleasm kernel module version does not exactly match the kernel version

    For example:
    kernel driver module (from rpm -qa command): oracleasm-2.6.18-8.0.0.4.1.el5-2.0.4-1.el5
    kernel version (from uname -r): 2.6.18-8.el5 #1 SMP

    Solution

    To implement the solution, please execute the following steps:

    For "Unbreakable Linux Network" customers using the "compatible" (with RHEL) kernel: obtain the appropriate driver with command:

    up2date -i oracleasm-`uname -r`



    For "Unbreakable Linux Network" customers using the "Unbreakable Enterprise kernel: this problem will not arise as the correct module will automatically be included (there is no separate kernel-driver rpm).

    when i executed up2date .... command, it asked me to register for support.

    moreover I'm using unbreakable enterprise linux for oracle... so you mean to say that it would automatically include all the required rpm, but i could not get it. is that my linux copy is incomplete copy?

    should i have to download the Unbreakable linux

    this is linux version and kernel version

    Linux RAC1 2.6.9-78.0.0.0.1.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Jul 25 14:41:56 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
