Hi all,

with all the arguments pro and con different mount points I have to say
I love ASM.

All I need in 11.2 RAC is Grid Infrastructure and a (possibly shared)
RDBMS home. These can go to /u01/ or wherever people fancy. Then all
data files, data pump exports, data guard broker config files, control
files, ORLs, SRLs, flashback logs (and many more) can go to +DATA and
+FRA or whatever you named your disk groups. Brilliant-and it takes a
lot more to do a rm -rf in asmcmd than on the file system :). Once it
gets to a stable state you could even use ASM Cluster File System for
your storage needs.

My only concern is that it's difficult to adhere to a single ORACLE_BASE
in RAC 11.2.
