Hi all,
I initially put plan to layout my FS for a new 11gR2 grid infrastructure layout as follows:
1) For 'gird' user:
2) For 'db01' user:

However, the UG states clearly that grid infrastructure should NOT be placed under any oracle base directory. quote ...

"If you choose to create an Oracle grid infrastructure home manually,
then do not create the Oracle grid infrastructure home for a cluster under either the grid installation owner Oracle base or the Oracle Database installation owner Oracle base."

The install UG, however, in the example listed had both base and home for 'grid' set to the same values, quote ...

"A *Grid home /u01/app/11.2.0/grid* owned by grid:oinstall with 775
(drwxdrwxr-x) permissions. These permissions are required for installation, and are changed during the installation process to root:oinstall with 755 permissions (drwxr-xr-x).

An *Oracle base for the grid installation owner /u01/app/11.2.0/grid* owned by grid:oinstall with 775 permissions

I then reviewed some web pages on the pythian site and others showing both of the above configurations.

If you installed 11gR2, can you please reply showing your environment / FS setup for both 'grid' and 'oracle'.

Thank you.
