DBCA Does Not Let You Specify an ACFS Filesystem for the Flash Recovery Area (FRA)
Last updated on APRIL 07, 2013
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 [Release 11.1 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
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.
