Oracle and /,/usr,/var

Hello,

I am wondering if anyone has a nice comprehensive list of all the OS partition places that Oracle database installations stuff their special files. I am not asking about ORACLE_BASE,_HOME,_TMPDIR,etc... I want to know about stuff that gets tucked into /usr,/var,

e.g. it looks like:

Some systems have stuff in: /etc/oracle/*

All systems that I have available have stuff in: /var/opt/oracle/*

Anywhere else? Thanks. Also, configurable?

I think those are configurable as long as you maintain a separate mount points for Oracle during installation. But /usr is already part of vg00 and you may need less 1GB space for Oracle.

Re: Oracle and /,/usr,/var

Adam,
a quick scan of one of my systems shows,
beside the ORACLE_ directories you mentioned:

./etc/rc.config.d/oracle
./opt/hpws/apache
./opt/mysql/sql-bench/limits
./var/opt/oracle
./var/tmp/hsperfdata_oracle
./var/jail/wp_internet/opt/hpws/apache/htdocs./var/jail/wp_intranet/opt/hpws/apache/htdocs./sbin/init.d/oracle
./sbin/rc3.d/S710oracle

Re: Oracle and /,/usr,/var

Thanks, points to come later.

Any advice on approach for ServiceGuard installations (as regards all these side-show files?)? Is there a good doc link that you can provide.

Line of thought is that you need all that "stuff" on each node in an SG cluster to allow failover/startup to work.

Additional context:

I am used to SSI systems like trucluster. Now I am trying to remind myself about package based HA systems like SG.

Re: Oracle and /,/usr,/var

Hi Adam,

My results are similar to Peter's with the addition of /etc/oratab, as well as the usual OS files for the "oracle" user (e.g. /var/spool/cron/crontabs/oracle).

I made use of this command:
# find /var -user oracle -group dba -print
