OS ---> RHEL 5.8

After the storage team attached the LUNs, our Linux admin team succesfully ran the following command from root
# oracleasm createdisk DISK127 /dev/sdm1
But v$asm_disk.HEADER_STATUS still shows PROVISIONED as shown below. Shouldn't this be of the status CANDIDATE ? If so, what did we miss?
set lines 200
col name format a20
col path format a26
col mount_status format a20
col header_status format a20
select name, path, state, mount_status, header_status, total_mb,free_mb from v$asm_disk order by 1 ;

NAME                 PATH                       STATE    MOUNT_STATUS         HEADER_STATUS          TOTAL_MB    FREE_MB
-------------------- -------------------------- -------- -------------------- -------------------- ---------- ----------
                     ORCL:DISK127               NORMAL   CLOSED               PROVISIONED                   0          0
