After installing ACFS/ADVM you created mount points. Everything is fine but while checking the ASMCA and Grid Control, ADVM Driver status showed as Not Installed. 

On ASMCA navigate to ASM Instances tab

Node            Instance Name           Status             ADVM Driver Status
Node 1          +ASM1                     UP                 Not Installed

When you try to check the acfsdriverstate as Grid Owner we got the below error:

Node1*+ASM1:/home/grid>acfsdriverstate installed
find: /lib/modules/2.6.18-8.el5: Permission denied
find: /lib/modules/2.6.18-238.el5/weak-updates: Permission denied
ACFS-9204: false

If we check the same as root user:

[root@Node1]# /app/oracle_grid/11.2.0/grid/bin/acfsdriverstate -orahome /app/oracle_grid/11.2.0/grid installed
ACFS-9203: true
