What is the best way to change the location of the controlfiles incase the db is already in existance.
A new disk is added (disk#3) on the solaris box and already I have 2 controlfiles in each disk. How would I react.. My steps are: Shudown the DB, Edit the init.ora with the 3rd location, copy the controlfile for disk2 to disk3, then bring the database up.. Is this correct.
In my another db I have 2 disks but controlfiles 2 and 3 are in the same disk #2, same directory.. If I have to change the path of the 3rd file alone, I should.. Bring down the db, change the location of the 3rd file by editing the pfile and bring up the database.
