Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 10.3.2 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


WebLogic Domain is installed on NFS mounted filesystem.
There is some issue in deleting an application from the source location after undeploying the application.
Following is the scenario in which the issue occurs:
1) Deploy an application on any server in exploded format.
2) Access the application.
3) Un-deploy the application.
4) Try to delete the application (using rm –rf) from the source location.
The delete process fails.
When  we list the files in the different directories of the application it consists of only files named .nfsXXX, where XXX is any random number.
