Comments for Read-Only Oracle Homes in Oracle Database 18c
Bradd said...What’s the point of the dbs directory under the Homes when there is a more global dbs directory?
A more global "dbs" directory? You mean the "$ORACLE_HOME/dbs" directory? The directory that is under the ORACLE_HOME, which is now read-only, so you don't want to write stuff there...
Bradd said...I was referring to the $ORACLE_BASE/dbs and $ORACLE_BASE/homes//dbs directories , not to the $ORACLE_HOME/dbs directory. I like the idea of the $ORACLE_BASE/dbs directory as it is less prone to issue when migrating to new homes (i.e. patching, upgrades, etc), but including a dbs in $ORACLE_BASE/homes/ seems redundant and could be confusing on which one to use.
Oh, I see what you mean. Yes. It seems a bit redundant. I suspect this will either disappear in future, or a specific reason for it will become obvious over time... :)
I'm still in play phase at the moment. So far I've only seen files appear in the $ORACLE_BASE/dbs directory...
