This article applies to Neverfail for Oracle Database. It describes Neverfail Group's policy with respect to deploying Neverfail Heartbeat in conjunction with Oracle Automatic Storage Management.
In addition to allowing the Windows NTFS File System to manage Oracle database files, Oracle implements Automatic Storage Management as an alternative storage mechanism for its databases. Automatic Storage Management uses disk groups that are not managed by NTFS.
Neverfail for Oracle Database supports only databases that are configured to use Windows NTFS as the storage mechanism. The Neverfail for Oracle Database installation will not be allowed to continue if Automatic Storage Management is detected.
