Is it related in any way to Sybase backup paths, or is it Oracle external data directories?

Hi Thom,

The External data directory is for Oracle external data directories. See this link for more infomation: https://docs.delphix.com/display/DOCS50/Specifying+External+Data+Directories+for+Oracle+dSources+and...

Sybase ASE does not support linking external file path. This option will be removed in the future.
