5. Create Shared Disk:

5.1. Create the disks and associate them to VM as virtual media:

VBoxManage createhd --filename "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk01.vdi" --size 7168 --format VDI --variant Fixed
VBoxManage createhd --filename "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk02.vdi" --size 5120 --format VDI --variant Fixed
VBoxManage createhd --filename "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk03.vdi" --size 5120 --format VDI --variant Fixed
VBoxManage createhd --filename "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk04.vdi" --size 5120 --format VDI --variant Fixed

5.2. Convert Disk to Shareable:

VBoxManage modifyhd "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk01.vdi" --type shareable
VBoxManage modifyhd "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk02.vdi" --type shareable
VBoxManage modifyhd "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk03.vdi" --type shareable
VBoxManage modifyhd "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk04.vdi" --type shareable

5.3. Connect Disk to VM:

VBoxManage storageattach racnode1 --storagectl "SATA" --port 1 --device 0 --type hdd --medium "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk01.vdi" --mtype shareable
VBoxManage storageattach racnode1 --storagectl "SATA" --port 2 --device 0 --type hdd --medium "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk02.vdi" --mtype shareable
VBoxManage storageattach racnode1 --storagectl "SATA" --port 3 --device 0 --type hdd --medium "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk03.vdi" --mtype shareable
VBoxManage storageattach racnode1 --storagectl "SATA" --port 4 --device 0 --type hdd --medium "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk04.vdi" --mtype shareable

5.4. Format disk for Creating ASM:

[root@racnode1 dev]# ls sd*
sda  sda1  sda2  sdb  sdc  sdd  sde

[root@racnode1 dev]# fdisk /dev/sdb
Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.23.2).

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 <ENTER> without typing an
answer will keep that current value.  Ctrl-C will abort.

6. Clone the Virtual Machine for Node2:

6.1. You can clone VM using command prompt or GUI.

C:\Users\samad>cd "c:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox"
VBoxManage clonehd "C:\VM\racnode1\racnode1.vdi" "C:\VM\racnode2\racnode2.vdi"

6.2. Add all shareable disks to Node 2.

VBoxManage storageattach racnode2 --storagectl "SATA" --port 1 --device 0 --type hdd --medium "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk01.vdi" --mtype shareable
VBoxManage storageattach racnode2 --storagectl "SATA" --port 2 --device 0 --type hdd --medium "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk02.vdi" --mtype shareable
VBoxManage storageattach racnode2 --storagectl "SATA" --port 3 --device 0 --type hdd --medium "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk03.vdi" --mtype shareable
VBoxManage storageattach racnode2 --storagectl "SATA" --port 4 --device 0 --type hdd --medium "C:\VM\racnode1\asmdisk04.vdi" --mtype shareable

6.3. Change hostname and IP on Node2:

[root@racnode2 ~]# cat /etc/hostname
racnode2.localdomain

[root@racnode2 ~]# ifconfig
