Recently our Storage Array LUN was extended by our Sys Admin group, to allow my DBA team to increase the size of “OCR_VOTE” disk group. Apparently, this is a new requirement for Oracle Database 12c. Unfortunately, the Sys Admin group did not format this new extended LUN.
The DBA team has determined we need 50Gig, and this has been confirmed running the Solaris, “format -e” command, and also the “prtvtoc” command. So, am I totally wrong thinking, my DBA team could just run “format”, select the correct disk, partition, then label, then save?
