how to locate "reserved file" display by "vfast -l hotfiles"?

Hi,

how can I find the name of a "reserved file" display by the command
"vfast -l hotfiles domain"?

If got an oracle installation running on a 5.1b system.

Entering
# vfast -l hotfiles oracle_domain

633562 1 orafs1: tag = 1, 5, quota.group

I'm quite sure, that those files are oracle database files, but how to locate them.

Trying showfile didn't give me the result, but I can guess, which file it "may" be. But to be 100% sure, I'll need a reliable way to find out.

Thanks in advance,


with kind regards

Andreas,

my best guess would be that these files belong to the advfs file system.

Hi Michael,

no, they must be owned by the oracle instances. (Especially I can't find any of the dbf-Files in the hotfiles list. I only see the compressed ones, which are not open.)

The documentation doesn't give any further description.
