I'm new to 10G and trying to read through the migration documentation but I just wanted to pinch your brains also....

We are planning to migrate to Oracle 10g from 8.1.7 (on a new server). I want to know, Can we keep the disk layout similar to Oracle 8i (Please see below) i.e does it use the same file structure?. What other things do we need to consider for installing 10g?.

Disk Layout for Oracle 8i is :-

Disk01 /disk01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7
Disk01 /disk01/oradata/MYDB - oracle files (adump,cdump,udump etc.
Disk02 /disk02/oradata/MYDB - control files,tools,system
Disk03 /disk03/oradata/MYDB - Temp01.dbf ... Temp04.dbf
Disk04 /disk04/oradata/MYDB - RBS01.dbf .. RBS_BATCH02.dbf
Disk05 /Disk05/oradata/MYDB - MYDB_IDX01.dbf .. MYDB_IDX05.dbf
Disk06 /Disk06/oradata/MYDB - MYDB_IDX06.dbf ... MYDB_IDX10.dbf
Disk07 /Disk07/oradata/MYDB - MYDB_TAB01.dbf .. MYDB_TAB05.dbf
Disk08 /Disk08/oradata/MYDB - MYDB_TAB06.dbf .. MYDB_TAB10.dbf
Disk09 /Disk09/oradata/MYDB - redo11.log .. redo41.log
Disk10 /Disk10/oradata/MYDB - redo12.log .. redo42.log
Disk10 /dump

All help and advice will be appriciated.

Thanks in advance
