RE: Addition of Redo logfile onto RAW Device Failing

Folks

Bug 
6051728<mhtml:file://C:\Documents%20and%20Settings\vivek_sharma\Local%20Settings\Temporary%20Internet%20Files\OLK11\Error%20-%20invalid%20device%20type%20for%20ASM%20disk%20during%20Add%20Logfile.mht!https://metalink2.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/showdoc?db=Bug&id=6051728>
 in Ver 10.2.0.3 is the Cause

After initiating the following workaround, Addition of Redo Logfiles to RAW 
Devices was successful.

Cheers

P.S. Workaround is Rename the /usr/sbin/lvmchk binary:-

   cd /usr/sbin
   mv lvmchk lvmchk.no

Folks

Qs Should the "b" (block device) file - /dev/vg02/rawdb1 OR the "c" (character 
device) file - /dev/vg02/rrawdb1 be used?
Have used BOTH names without success.

NOTE - This is a NON-ASM, NON-RAC Oracle Setup with Database on Mounted 
Filesystem.

An Old Oracle ver 8 metalink Doc 1051188.6 indicates that Oracle uses only "c" 
- character device files as raw devices.

Oracle 10.2.0.3.0
HP-UX B.11.23

Cheers

P.S. Errors:-

SQL> alter database add logfile group 3 ('/dev/vg02/rrawdb1') size 500M ;
