I'm installing a production Oracle Database 11g R2 EE on a RHEL 6.3 64-bit system and I'm a little confused by what the following doc quote means:

If you do not want to create a separate Oracle data file directory, then you can install the data files in a subdirectory of the Oracle base directory. However, this is not recommended for production databases."
*/dev/sda* = Linux OS partitions:
-sda1 = /boot
-sda2 = Swap
-sda3 = /
*/dev/sdb* = ORACLE_*
-sdb1 = /u01
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?
There are two physical drives as shown above.
- /dev/sda = 2 TB
- /dev/sdb = 2 TB
No RAID. The partition format is exactly as listed above and assume that both drives have ample space available for new partitions and or folders. How would you or someone who knows 11g more than I do proceed?
