    Exclamation Unanswered: utl_file_dir


    I'm accesing to a database that outside of my company (Client's one) using a DBLINK, and I ran a query, Now I want to generate a trace file to use tkprof later, but I dont have access to the utl_file_dir of my client. I would like to generate those trace files in my local server.

    Is it possible ?

    Thanks !

    Theoretically yes, but I seriously recommend that you do NOT do it.
    Yes, open up your system & firewall so that the client can mount your filesystem across the unsecured Internet & give them the ability to write to your volume. Also you'd have to change the destination for the dump/trace files.

    A wiser plan would be to simply have them email the trace file to you.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
