Hello Experts,

This may seem a very basic/ stupid question to you, but please take time to answer this.

For RAC with ASM, user can not browse the ASM files. From within NTFS or ext2( for linux) they are not seen.
Similarly, for OCFS2 , are these oracle files not seen through ext2 , linux file system?
Also, for RAC with ASM if I query v$datafile, it returns +diskgroup/dbname/datafile.dbf.
What will be the file name returned for datafiles in OCFS2 by this view?

Thanks for your valuable time and inputs.

Regards,
swaorclser

Whatever file name you specified when you created the file. OCFS2 is just a file system like any other. I see no point in using it now, though. I think it is just an historical anomaly.

Thanks for your time and replying.

I am keen to know the full file name that will be returned. Along with the path on the system OCFS2, Fully qualified File Name Form as Oracle calls it.
