This action builds and submits an ALTER DISKGROUP... MOUNT or ALTER DISKGROUP... DISMOUNT FORCE/NOFORCE statement. This lets you manually make disk groups available or unavailable to all database instances running on the same node.

Note: Before this object action is available you must have a direct connection to the ASM instance. For details, see Manage ASM Connection.

Action options

All - Selected, an ALTER DISKGROUP ALL... statement is generated, letting you the mount or dismount operation to occur in all disk groups. Dismount - select this check box to make the disk group unavailable. Deselect this check box to have the disk group mounted. Force - only available with Dismount selected. If Force is selected, ASM will dismount the disks even if some files in the disk group are open. If deselected, a NOFORCE option is used. Restricted (available as of Oracle 11GR1) - When selected, a RESTRICTED clause is included in the generated ALTER DISKGROUP statement, mounting the disk in single-instance exclusive mode, making the disk group unusable by any ASM client. When unselected, a NORMAL clause is included in the generated ALTER DISKGROUP statement, mounting the disk group in shared mode, and other ASM instances and clients can access the disk group.
