Where is oratab Location

  • by

Here is the list to show Oracle oratab location in some operating systems.

oratab location in operating systems
Operating Systemoratab Location
Linux/etc/oratab
AIX/etc/oratab
HP/UX/etc/oratab
Solaris/var/opt/oracle/oratab
WindowsIn Windows, there's no such oratab, because it uses registry to keep all necessary information about Oracle database(s). Please refer to Oracle Software Registry (regedit)

Let's see an example of oratab in Linux.

[oracle@test ~]$ cat /etc/oratab
...
ORCL:/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1:Y

Database servers of a newer RAC system may not contain useful information in oratab because OCR already has it.
