To enable Hybrid Columnar Compresstion(HCC) on AXIOM pillar storage, we need to set the storage.type attribute to AXIOM, and this could fail with ORA-15285

alter diskgroup DATA_DM01 set attribute 'storage.type'='AXIOM'

ORA-15032: not all alterations performed
ORA-15242: could not set attribute storage.type
ORA-15287: could not set disk group attribute storage.type due to incompatible disks
ORA-15285: disk '/dev/oracleasm/disks/DISK1' violates disk group attribute storage.type
