Required ACFS Driver Updates

Install updated ACFS drivers before updating Exadata database servers to 18.1.5.0.0 or 12.2.1.1.7. Note the following:


1. Updated ACFS drivers are needed for the most efficient CVE-2017-5715 mitigation to be in place once 18.1.5.0.0 or 
   12.2.1.1.7 is installed.
2. Updated ACFS drivers are needed whether or not ACFS is in use.
3. In an OVM configuration dom0 may be updated to 18.1.5.0.0 or 12.2.1.1.7 before the ACFS drivers are updated in domU.
4. Updated drivers are delivered via an ACFS patch that is installed in the grid infrastructure home. 
   
GI Home guidelines - The following patches are available at publication time:

1. Grid infrastructure 18.2 and 12.2.0.1 - Patch 27463879
2. Grid infrastructure 12.1.0.2.180417 - Patch 27942938 (merge patch containing fixes for bug 27463879 and bug 23312691)
3. Grid infrastructure 12.1.0.2.180116 - Patch 27942821 (merge patch containing fixes for bug 27463879 and bug 23312691)

How to check ACFS drivers installed based on Grid Infrastructure Version

1. Login as 'grid' user and check the patches


2. Check "ACFS" drivers Information on Oracle Exadata Compute Nodes
