To simplify the maintenance of your Oracle installation, you can install the Oracle binary files and Oracle configuration files on a shared file system. The following shared file systems are supported:
The Sun StorEdge QFS shared file system
The cluster file system
A file system on a Network Appliance NAS device
If you are installing the Oracle binary files and Oracle configuration files on a shared file system, specify the absolute paths to the file system when the Oracle installation tool requests this information. Do not use a symbolic link whose target is the shared file system.
