[ODA] How to create and delete an Oracle Cloud FS (a.k.a. ACFS)

This is other post that can help you with ODA Systems.

For upgrade purpose I need to create another filesystem, cause my dmp file is almost 200GB, and I don't have enough space in the other ones.

Enough talking, let's get started.

From your Node 1 (my-oda1) and with grid user execute the next steps:

1. If this is a new ODA you "must" have plenty space in your Diskgroups (+DATA, +REDO, +RECO) so, space is not a topic you should be worry about. But if you have database created in your ODA, you should take a look around how much space you have available in your diskgroups.

Query the space available, in ASM instance :

su - grid
sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL> select name,total_mb,free_mb from v$asm_diskgroup;

NAME                             TOTAL_MB    FREE_MB
------------------------------ ---------- ----------
DATA                              7372800    2320020
RECO                              9796800    9714460
REDO                               763120     729800

I recommend you, create the volume in +DATA disk group.
