Enable ASMCA to Configure Flex ASM on an Existing NAS Configuration

This feature enables you to install Oracle Flex ASM on a configuration previously configured on network file storage (NFS). In particular, Oracle ASM Configuration Assistant (ASMCA) can be run in silent mode to configure Oracle ASM after an Oracle Clusterware installation has been performed using network attached storage (NAS) for Oracle Cluster Registry (OCR) and Voting disks.

The business value of this feature is that it provides an easy way for you to transition from NFS storage over to Oracle ASM managed storage. Without this feature, you would have to do a complete fresh installation and move all databases.
