(Doc ID 1085146.1)
Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018
Applies to:Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 [Release 11.2]
ACFS tools and utilities - acfsroot, acfsdriverstate, acfsload, etc report that the installed Linux release does not support ADVM/ACFS.
After the Grid Infrastructure installation of 126.96.36.199 binaries, starting ACFS might be failing saying that the installed Linux release does not support ADVM/ACFS, like in the following example:
$ acfsload start
ADVM/ACFS is not supported on dhl-release-DHLPRG5AS64B2-5-1
The problem can be seen in both single instance and cluster installations.
The ACFS install would be on a supported Linux release - either Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 or Red Hat 5.
The output of 'rpm -qa | grep release' would show both redhat-release and some other <name>-release, i.e. something like this:
$ rpm -qa | grep release
