I have just installed 10gR2 on SLES9. I am using ASM for database file storage. During the install I specified the following directory for storage of all files:

+data/ehrtest

All of my files appear to be there. (control files, redo logs, datafiles)

However, the following directories were also created by Oracle:

ARCHIVELOG/
CONTROLFILE/
DATAFILE/
ONLINELOG/
PARAMETERFILE/
TEMPFILE/

There seem to be files in each of the above directories. Example, in the DATAFILE/ directory:

SYSAUX.264.593105775
SYSTEM.262.593105673
UNDOTBS1.263.593105765
USERS.266.593105803

I guess my question is, if I specified the directory "+data/ehrtest" to store my files, why did Oracle create the extra directories and also put files in them?
