Restrictions on the MySQL Database Directory

Regardless of which MySQL delivery method you have chosen, that is from or from other source, the following restrictions apply.

Each MySQL instance must have a unique Database directory. You can mount this Database directory as either a Failover File System or Global File System.

Note –

It is always a good practice to mount the Global File Systems with the /global prefix and to mount the Failover File Systems with the /local prefix.
