Information in this document applies to any platform.
In a SOACS instance, when a user other than the oracle user tries to access the dbfs directory, there is a "Permission denied" error.
Only the oracle user is able to access the dbfs directory.
eg. The dbfs directory is /u01/soacs/dbfs
The oracle user is able to access the /u01/soacs/dbfs directory :-
[oracle]$ cd /u01/soacs/dbfs
However then a different user, in this example the peterw user, tries to access the dbfs directory, they get a "Permission denied" error. :-
[peterw]$ cd /u01/soacs/dbfs
-bash: cd: /u01/soacs/dbfs: Permission denied
The same peterw user can access non dbfs directories fine. eg :-
[peterw]$ cd /u01/soacs
