Well, the directory where all the audit files are appearing is not the default Oracle audit directory. So, he changed the location when he enabled auditing. We never had this before he switched the auditing on and off. We are using a control file, not a repository.

Is it possible that RMAN needs some sort of change also? And, the database has been bounced since then.

Worst case, put it back and remove the files daily, do not want that solution though.
