This issue is about Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Grid Infrastructure installation on linux Red Hat 5 x86_64
The error “ADVM/ACFS is not supported on epel-release-5-4” is one bug related a installed packages.
Bug Evidence – Look the packages (root user)
rpm -qa |grep release
NOTE: The Grid installation verify in your system the packages with name like “release” and wait exception only for three packages “redhat-release”, “rpmforge-release” and “release-notes”, if you have installed more then three packages with name like “release” the script of verification will fail, in this example the package is “epel-release-5-4”. Please follow bellow the workaround:
1. Clear the temp file of system version:
echo > /tmp/.linux_release
2. Backup of script :
cp -rp osds_acfslib.pm BKP_osds_acfslib.pm
NOTE: $ORACLE_HOME is grid path installation, eg: “/u01/app/11.2.0/grid”
3. Edit the script (this example with epel-release-5-4 package):
if ($release =~ /release-notes/)
if ($release =~ /epel-release/)
4. Try to install again
God Luck !
