    Question

    Im trying to delete a file on solaris 2.6 and I get this error message
    rm: crmsa2_data01_01.dbf not removed: Permission denied

    I am the owner of the file but somehow the operating system does not allow me to delete this file.

    -rw-r----- 1 oracle dba 838862848 Oct 3 16:32 crmsa2_data01_01.dbf.

    Has anyone got any ideas why this is occuring?

    Is this file online? If it is online, then turn offline and dropped if you this is you want:

    alter database datafile 'entire_path' offline;

    Then in SO rm ...

    I think, but not sure now, you can do this too:

    alter database datafile 'entire_path' offline drop;

    Regards
