I wonder if you can help. I have a couple of scenarios here and a bit confused.
I have 2 RedHat environments here 1) Redhat 5.9 and Redhat 6.3. Both have RAC cluster 18.104.22.168 /Grid/ASM. ( 2-node clusters)
We are planning to use ACFS to host a shared Oracle home on Redhat6.
On initial testing on RedHat 5
We configured ACFS, all was working fine, until we had to reboot the server. Every time the server is rebooted it would not mount the volume groups for ASM. The only workaround is to run the command "acfsroot install" command. Once we had that command set-up in /etc/init.d/acfsload, on server reboot everything is working fine. Note that the acfsload script was initially for loading the ASM drivers, but I discovered that these were loaded automatically on server reboot anyway. (this was checked and confirmed by issuing an lsmod|grep oracle.
On the other hand, when I proceeded to set up ACFS on Redhat 6 environment, the "acfsroot install" was not required, but we had to use "acfsload start -s".
Can you shed some light on the functionality of using "acfsroot install" and "acfsload start -s".
I cannot seem to understand why I have to use one in the 5.9 environment and the other in the 6.3 environment.
