    You have to recreate you controlfile with changed maxdatafiles parameter.

    Follow these steps to recreate your control file:

    As SYS;

    SVRMGR> alter database backup controlfile to trace;

    Shutdown the database (immediate or normal - not abort)
    *** Take a Full Cold Backup ***

    Goto your user dump dest and find the control file produced by the above command (will be a .trc file - sort by date/time to find).
    You will need to move/rename your existing control files at this point - also make sure you have sufficient space to create new ones as they will be bigger than the old.

    Modify this trace file (call it control.sql or something as well) -
    Delete any header information prior to the words Startup nomount.
    Increase your maxdatafiles parameter and save the file.

    Run:
    svrmgrl
    connect internal
    @/patch/control.sql

    **Shut down the database and take a full offline backup**

    Hope this helps

    Terry.
