My ORACLE_BASE would be = /u01/app/oracle
My ORACLE_HOME would be = /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2/db1
Based on that folder structure which seems very traditional in the Oracle realm, how would one create a separate data directory. I'm guessing the data directory is the $ORACLE_BASE/oradata, right? Anyone have an example of how this would be configured to Oracle preferred standards? Should I throw it on a separate disk partition on /dev/sda?
