I have recently configured ILM Assistant v1.3 under a 22.214.171.124 Database (testing purpose). I realized everytime when a partition is moved from a higer storage tier to a low storage tier. It always suggests merging the partition with the existing one in the lower tier. Is there a way to avoid the merge? I set the 'Merge Partition Threshold' to 0 already.
At the moment, the only way to avoid merges is to set the target device for the lifecycle stage as a WORM. This will avoid the merges, but it will also cause tablespace cloning to receive the partition.
I am working on a kit as we speak, so I will fix this so that merging will be avoided when the threshold is zero.
