    Can a SMB (server message block) be used as our file share in clustered OSB/SOA instance instead of a NAS?


      We like to know if a SMB (server message block) will be adequate as our file share as opposed to a NAS. The SMB will be used for hosting files (e.g.: plan.xml, jms persistent stores, adapter control files, property files, binary files,...) that our services (OSB, SOA, Java) will be accessing in a cluster.

      Also, is this a recommended approach that Oracle certifies?

      Let me know if you need more details.

      Current instance details:

      OS: AIX 6.1

      Type: 64-bit

      WLS: 10.3.6
