Hi,

I have a single instance database, version 10gR2 on linux - Cent Os, with the following settings for the audit trials
SQL> show parameter aud

NAME TYPE VALUE
audit_file_dest string /u/p3/admin/DB1/audit
audit_sys_operations boolean FALSE
audit_syslog_level string
audit_trail string NONE

The minimal audits that get generated with audit_trial = none are going to the proper destination "/u/p3/admin/DB1/audit".

The problem is that in addition to going to "/u/p3/admin/DB1/audit", some of the audit files (specifically those that get generated when i startup the database)
are also getting created in $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/audit/ directory.

What can be the reason for this and is there a way I can prevent this from happening?

Hi Swan, Thanks for your reply. Just to give you more info on what happens with audit_trial=none, I am posting contents of the audit file. This gets generated when I startup the database. All other audit files go to the location I had given using audit_file_dest except this one which goes to both audit_file_dest as well as to ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/audit .

The same thing is happening with audit_trial='db'. Every time I issue Startup, it generates a similar file that goes to both locations.
