Last updated on SEPTEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.4 and later
Oracle Database - Standard Edition - Version 11.2.0.4 and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)

Symptoms

Many exspad<PID>.err files are created under "%TEMP%\CVU_<PSR>_<Server_name>$\scratch" directory after executing exectask.exe and they remain there forever, each file size is 0 byte.

If Oracle Clusterware is monitored by Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM), exspad<PID>.err files can be accumulated because OEM frequently uses exectask.exe.
