After migrate from asmlib to asm filter drive using the Doc ID 2172754.1 the ASM Filter drive not start automatically and I always need configure again using asmcmd afd_configure command to start it again.

What can be the possible reason for it?

Here is the current status of asm filter drive after rebooting the machine:

[root@server1 ~]# asmcmd afd_state
ASMCMD-9530: The AFD state is 'INSTALLED'
[root@server1 ~]#

I can start normally after issue the command asmcmd afd_configure

[root@server1 ~]# asmcmd afd_configure

AFD-627: AFD distribution files found.
AFD-632: Existing AFD installation detected.
AFD-634: Removing previous AFD installation.
AFD-635: Previous AFD components successfully removed.
AFD-9294: updating file /etc/sysconfig/oracledrivers.conf
AFD-636: Installing requested AFD software.
AFD-637: Loading installed AFD drivers.
AFD-9321: Creating udev for AFD.
AFD-9323: Creating module dependencies - this may take some time.
AFD-9154: Loading 'oracleafd.ko' driver.
AFD-649: Verifying AFD devices.
AFD-9156: Detecting control device '/dev/oracleafd/admin'.
AFD-638: AFD installation correctness verified.
Modifying resource dependencies - this may take some time.

[root@server1 ~]# asmcmd afd_state
ASMCMD-9526: The AFD state is 'LOADED' and filtering is 'ENABLED' on host 'server1' <<<<< LOADED AND ENABLE

[root@server1 ~]# asmcmd afd_lsdsk
Label                     Filtering   Path
DISCO1                      ENABLED   /dev/sde1
DISCO2                      ENABLED   /dev/sdf1
DISCO3                      ENABLED   /dev/sdg1

  • Try to locate the driver oracleafd.ko, check output of lsmod, also CRS should mention whether this module is loaded during startup or not
