ASM Disk not Accessible and not Appearing in V$ASM_DISK

If you are using ASMLib for your ASM storage and it is working perfectly fine; then, after adding a new ASM Disk you suddenly realize that although new disk is being listed by “oracleasm listdisks” command, it is still not appearing in V$ASM_DISK view. As a result, you are not able to add this new disk in your diskgroup because disk is not accessible to ASM instance. One reason of this could be that ASMLib configuration is not as it should be. Reasons could be: OS patching, oracleasm kernel driver update etc.

Creating Weblogic Domain for Fusion Middleware

After we have installed the Fusion Middleware and completed its initial configuration, next step is to configure a weblogic domain. A weblogic domain is a logically related group of weblogic resources. Once we create a domain, and Administration Server instance is also gets created that is used to manage this domain. After this, we can add Managed Servers using this Administration Server by logging into the Administration Server using an admin user account through a console. Web Applications are then deployed on to the managed server(s). We can create multiple managed servers to work as a cluster for load balancing and fault tolerance
