While using DBCA to create a new database, you try to enter an ACFS filesystem (for example, /u03) for the Fast Recovery Area (FRA), but it doesn't accept it. Instead it gives you the message "Selected location "/u03" is on ASM Cluster File System (ACFS). ACFS location is not allowed as shared storage for cluster database. You should specify an ASM diskgroup or any other supported shared storage location."
The ACFS is set up correctly.
