    Hi Michael, thanks for the article

    Another nice trick using ASM (or AST) is that you can setup HADR and the standby does not necessarily needs to have the same db storage paths and it works!!. Just for cases where you need to test anything in particular and have enough space available to contain your database on the standby server but don’t have the time for Unix admins to allocate and create the original filesystems/paths.


  3. Nice article, confusing abbreviation. Every time I think “Ah, you are going to write about the new taks scheduler” http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/data/library/techarticle/dm-0809see/. But that is ATS and you talk about AST…

    b.t.w. I found out that new storage paths do not need to be “altered” to the database 1st. You can add a new path to a stogroup directly. I that is a “bug or a ferature” I do not know 🙂

      I believe data is not rebalanced when you add a path. I think it is only available for new containers, and you still have to be careful about having differing container sizes.
