Demos are being upgraded to reflect the new Container paradigm as well as EBR (Edition Based Redefinition) and may contain references to CDBs, PDBs, and other objects you may not be familiar with such as CDB_OBJECTS_AE: Welcome to 12c.

Subprograms
 
MAKE_ORACLE_FS
Creates a file system of type specified by file system type and name similar to mkfs on Unix dbms_fs.make_oracle_fs(
fstype    IN VARCHAR2,
fsname    IN VARCHAR2,
fsoptions IN VARCHAR2); -- comma separated file system create options
exec dbms_fs.make_oracle_fs('FUBAR', 'FUBAR', 'FUBAR');

The fact that this runs successfully, and there are no dependencies, unfortunately tells us nothing about it.
 
MOUNT_ORACLE_FS
Mount an Oracle file system on the specified mount point similar to mount in Unix dbms_fs.mount_oracle_fs (
fstype        IN VARCHAR2,
fsname        IN VARCHAR2,
mount_point   IN VARCHAR2,
mount_options IN VARCHAR2);
exec dbms_fs.mount_oracle_fs('FUBAR', 'FUBAR', '/fubar', 'FUBAR');

-- Doing this hang the session and the system ... SYSDBA can log on but a SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE does not work forcing an ABORT.
 
UNMOUNT_ORACLE_FS
Unmount an Oracle file system on the specified mount point similar to umount in Unix dbms_fs.unmount_oracle_fs(
fsname      IN VARCHAR2,
mount_point IN VARCHAR2);
exec dbms_fs.unmount_oracle_fs('FUBAR', '/fubar');

-- Doing this hang the session and the system ... SYSDBA can log on but a SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE does not work forcing an ABORT.
