Symptoms

After replacing a disk, the disk goes into NewDiskInserted status. This does not mean that the new disk is a bad disk, this simply means that it has failed to integrate into the software, either because there is an old entry in asm, afd, in /etc/multipath.conf, in /dev/mapper, or in asmappl.config file.

Most likely the issue is with afd, this is the first to check.

Changes

 Replaced disk, and instead of disk going to Good status, it is in NewDiskInserted status.
