    Question

    Hi,

    I want to move system tablespace's datafiles from one disk to another. Can I put the tablespace system offline. Is it safe to do it


    Thanks

    You can't do this.

    1. Shutdown normal your database.
    2. Copy the system datafile where you want
    3. Startup mount
    4. Alter database rename datafile 'old_path_for_system_datafile' to 'new_path'
    5. Startup open

    Regards

    1. backup
    2. create a backup controlfile script
    "alter database backup controlfile to trace"
    this file will be in the udump directory
    copy it, modify it with the new system tblspace file locations
    remove the comments - svrmgrl/sqlplus don't like them

    3. shutdown the database
    4. move the system tblspace data file(s)
    5. run the script modified in step 2

    Instead of

    ALTER DATABASE RENAME DATAFILE ...

    I used

    ALTER DATABASE RENAME FILE ...

    That's funny. I'm on Unix and it's ALTER DATABASE RENAME FILE also...
