11gR2 envitronment setup -- where to put $ORACLE_BASE?
« on: April 06, 2011, 08:47:13 AM »
We are starting our process to move to 11g. Our current $ORACLE_BASE is set to <mount_point>/app/oracle, which by default creates the new diag directory and its sub dirs as follows: <mount_point>/app/oracle/diag/...
 
has anyone found a reason to move $ORACLE_BASE or to use the pfile parameter "Diagnostic_dest" to create the diag structure somewhere else?
 
i had an Oracle SR response that suggested i create a new base/home combination for each new oracle home i created and establish oracle_base above the version directory, i.e <mount_point>/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/<base_name1>/<home_name1>
<mount_point>/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/<base_name2>/<home_name2>
 
any thoughts?
