Goal

While users are using the export functionality or querying large amounts of data, the /tmp is filling up full of deleted files locked by active form sessions.
When people log off the files are removed.

Trying to get forms to write to /u03/tmp where there is more storage space and have changed every temp variables ( APPLTMP, APPLPTMP, TMP,TMPDIR, etc.) to point elsewhere:

applprod@<user>:/home/applprod # env | grep -i tmp
TMPDIR=/tmp
TEMP=/tmp
REPORTS60_TMP=/oracle/prodcomn/temp
APPLPTMP=/oracle/prodcomn/temp
TMP=/tmp
APPLTMP=/oracle/prodcomn/temp
applprod@<user>:/home/applprod #
Removed /tmp from utl_file_dir.

None of the changes have made any difference and forms is still writing to /tmp.

How to get forms to write to a different than the local /tmp directory?
