Try this...
find / -name "DUMP_EXADATA" -print

Open in new window

You also might want to pipe it to more to pause after each screenful, especially if you start getting access denied messages.
find / -name "DUMP_EXADATA" -print | more

Open in new window

If you know that the directory is under a particular part of the systems file directory tree, (e.g. if you know that it is under /export) then you can "cd" to that directory (cd /export) and then use the find command above, but instead of "/" use "."

Or you can replace the "/" with the actual path so that you get

find /export -name DUMP_EXADATA

In this case you don't need the quotes or the "-print" since "-print" is the default.

The best solution in a unix system is to combine the utils in your case you need to combine find and grep so to find your DUMP_EXADATA do:
cd /
find * | grep "DUMP_EXADATA" | less

Open in new window
