Last updated on DECEMBER 05, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Database Service - Version N/A and later
Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When archive log destination is using DNFS, Oracle creates the archives with READ ONLY permissions.
All other database files have correct permissions.

The problem is seen only when using DNFS .
