On an upgraded Grid Infrastructure environment( from or newly installed cluster in, the output of “ocrconfig –showbackuploc” command truncates the last sub directory.  For example, the OCR backups are stored in /u01/app/

But, we see this truncated output with a missing last subdirectory (dba-cl3, in this case):

ocrconfig -showbackuploc
The Oracle Cluster Registry backup location is [/u01/app/]

While,on one 12.1 cluster, when we set the OCR backup location manually, we see the FULL path:

ocrconfig -backuploc /u01/app/
ocrconfig -showbackuploc
The Oracle Cluster Registry backup location is [/u01/app/]

The output from “ocrconfig –showbackuploc” is not consistent.

But at the same time,ocrconfig –local -showbackuploc’ shows the FULL (correct) path of the OLR backup location everywhere, for example:

ocrconfig -local -showbackuploc
The Oracle Local Registry backup location is [/u01/app/]



Basically, on all the grid infrastructure (new or upgraded) shows OCR backup location truncated, except for the one on which we run “orconfig –backuploc”; this one shows a full path.
