Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Ops Center - Version 12C to 12cR3 (12.3) [Release 12.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 The Oracle DB backup needs the OC_DUMP_DIR directory to save the backup file(.dmp). Sometimes, due to size there is a need to change the location of OC_DUMP_DIR.

See also document 1507660.1 for a backup that fails due to the default OC_DUMP_DIR(/var/tmp/ocdumpdir) that is missing.
