Hi
OS = Window 2003 server
ORACLE= EE-10.1.0.2.0

I set AUDIT_TRAIL=DB it works well, I could see
all audit information in DBA_AUDIT_TRAIL table

Now I wanted to store all audit information
in os file.I set these two parameters

1)AUDIT_TRAIL=OS
2)AUDIT_SYS_OPERATIONS=TRUE

3)Restarted the server.

4)There is no any folder/file like AUDIT
in my Oracle_home\rdbms\--- (or)
Oracle_base\product\10.1.0\admin\orcl\---


5)There is no any such parameter like
AUDIT_FILE_DEST

6)How to set audit file Destination path ?

What is audit_trial_dest?
Arju talked about audit_file_dest.
Do you see the difference?

In addition, this is a static parameter you have to specify scope=spfile or modify it in init.ora and restart.

What part of "scope=spfile" don't you understand?
Curious you are able to do it for audit_trail or audit_sys_operations but not for audit_file_dest.
You know you can do it in 3 statements not only 2.

Michel

SQL> ALTER SYSTEM SET AUDIT_FILE_DEST='C:\ORACLE\ADMIN\MIKA\ADUMP' SCOPE=SPFILE;

System altered.

I just copy and paste your statement changing the directory to an existing one and this works.
Check your ' are correct ones.
As you don't format we can't see it.

No, you didn't have, you gave version.
And even if it the case, answer my questions.

Try:
ALTER SYSTEM SET AUDIT_FILE_DEST='E:\Oracle\product\10.1.0\admin\orcl\adump' deferred SCOPE=xxx;
with xxx is in (BOTH,MEMORY,SPFILE) that is try the 3 syntaxes.
