    vgdisplay -v
    mount
    df -h

    if you have / and /u01 what mount point are you needing ?

    So very many question in just a few short number of weeks.
    Maybe you need to go back and work all your forum threads through to a conclusion before you post new questions.

    Why would you want another mount point - on the same disk? Having 3 partitions as 3 mounts on the same disk, is not somehow better/faster/more robust than 2 partitions with 2 mounts on the same disk.

    One needs to justify mounts and partitions - and not blindly follow documentation that, for example, recommends 2 or 3 mount points. Understand the reasons for that recommendation. Understand the limitations and restrictions in your environment. Determine how to best meet business requirements, given that recommendation and these limitations.

    As for the /u01 mount recommendations from Oracle for RDBMS - that is in my view old and out of date with respect to server and storage and database technology of today. I prefer ASM and raw devices for stand-alone database servers too - provides superior storage management, more flexibility, and direct I/O on a raw device is faster than I/O via a kernel file system driver to a file on a cooked device.

    The reason people ask for a 'business need' is because people often have pre-conceived and ill-conceived solutions to an unstated problem. If we know what the real problem is we can often give a better solution that what the OP as heading for. Even as a student, some issues are purely academic (I want to learn how to do this) and some still relate to a "business" problem (I'm running out of space on /u01).

    Not in itself, but at some point it starts to look like you are doing no research on your own and are just looking to the forum to be your own private tutor.
    And when you leave old questions marked as 'unanswered' it does two things:
    1) gives the appearance that you don't consider the help here to be useful. It is a slap in the face of those who tried to help
    2) People waste their time opening and reading threads that have been long dormant with no resolution.

    You cannot.
    Only Site Administrators and some forum moderators can do that.

    ... then perhaps you should go back and work on them until you have resolved them. You would then be able to complete each of those forum threads.

    Alternatively, you can go back and add a post into each of them and describe why you are abandoning the issue. Then toggle the thread to "Answered" because a deliberate abandoning is still some sort of an answer.

    People who come here for help often have a goal in mind and get stuck on what they think is the path towards the solution, but often do not realize the implications or complexity of the solution. And unfortunately, many of these people often do not have a clue about what information is actually necessary to answer their questions. Ignorance is bliss.

    There is no forum rule here that suggests to answer any question in any way the poster demands, or to provide any answer at all. There are other forum rules though you might want to keep in mind: https://forums.oracle.com/forums/ann.jspa?annID=1278.

    If you request step by step information regardless of whether it is the best way to solve your problem, then you should better say so in your initial posting or explain it in a friendly manner when the matter occurs.

    There is no good excuse to demonstrate lack of feedback or to leave past questions orphaned without providing a final conclusion. It is sometimes difficult and means to work towards a solution. However, to my understanding, the forum does not exist to make other people work at your fingertip. Trying to provide a clear question and final conclusion that can be useful for other forum members is a matter of courtesy and a necessary token of appreciation.

    For what it's worth:

    I have edited your most recent post to include a link to what your were referring to.
    That helps everyone else understand your statements a bit better.
    i think you are not getting my question
    I most definitely "got" your question.
    Go back and read the response in that thread.
    so these are two different questions and demands different threads
    No. It's the same gosh-darn procedure and you need to spend more time reading documentation instead of posting to online forums. That is why a product's documentation exists -- for you to teach yourself about something.

    Edit:
    Now that you have edited your original post of this thread to become something absolutely different, and therefore unrelated to the responses you got in this thread, it is now also locked.
