Re: add raw device for oracle 10g r2

At a high level and with no consideration to SG and other cluster constraints:

8GB addition...
lvcreate -L 8192M -n lv_new VG_QDB_ORA02
chown oracle: /dev/VG_QDB_ORA02/rlv_new

... then in oracle ...

alter tablespace add datafile
'/dev/VG_QDB_ORA02/rlv_new' size 8192M;
-- may need to decrease the size here by 4k or so.

Have a look at your current datafiles and duplicate what you see there in terms of naming and placement ( Oracle may be using links to the raw device file ):

select file_name from dba_data_files;
