    Does any one know how to rename a database instance? I felt that it is a lot of rework. Please suggest.

    Cool

    steps to rename ur instance
    # shutdown your instance
    #delete your current service using "oradim -delete -sid in OS level
    #create a new service using
    oradim -new -sid -intpwd -startmode -pfile
    #rename your pfile to new sid as "init.ora"
    #start your new instance
    #select instance_name from v$instance;

    try this.

    bye
