$ ls -ld TEST*

drwxr-xr-x 2 orastg oinstall 4096 Apr 16 10:59 TEST1

drwx------ 2 orastg oinstall    6 Apr 16 10:58 TEST2        <<<<<<   This directory has been created

 

Node 2 (instance : TEST2)

 audit_file_dest          = "/u01/app/oracle/audit/TEST2

$ ls -ld TEST*

drwx------ 2 orastg oinstall    6 Apr 16 10:54 TEST1   <<<<<< This directory has been created

drwxr-xr-x 2 orastg oinstall 4096 Apr 16 11:00 TEST2

 

When we deleting this extra folder, it automatically recreate at db restart.
