Last updated on MARCH 26, 2010

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 9.0.1.0 to 11.1.0.7
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Why there is no AUTOBACKUP directory under {FRA}/{DB_NAME} or $ORACLE_HOME/dbs even though the default device type is to DISK?

Note: The {FRA} stands for flash recovery area and {DB_NAME} means the database name.
