Changing Adr Base with "diagnostic_dir" but ADRCI Shows Old Base (Doc ID 1435987.1)

Last updated on MAY 01, 2013

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.0.7 to 11.2.0.2 [Release 11.1 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Trying to change the diagnostic_directory to a file system outside $ORACLE_BASE for multiple databases.

Modified each database's diagnostic_directory parameter using "alter system set diagnostic_directory='/new/filesystem' scope=both".

This was successful and it is writing to the new destination correctly.


However when trying to remove the old destination, Oracle recreates the previous default diag directory structure.

Changes

Changing the diagnostic_dest for the database.
