I have installed Oracle 8.1.6 on NT and created a database on drive C. Now I need to add additional databases on other drives ( 1 per drive). How do I go about this? How do I get Oracle to recognize that the database is not on the same drive as Oracle?
Just create the database in drive. Then change the ORACLE_SID to the new database. Then startup the database. Oracle recognises it through its control file about the new database.
Do you want to move the installation of Oracle or just the database?
If you just want to move the database, then just create the directories for it on the new drive,
then one at a time with your tablespaces....
alter tablespace x offline normal;
(then move the files for this tablespace)
alter database rename datafile x to y
alter tablespace x online;
with SYSTEM and some other tablespaces you will have to pu the database in a NOMOUNT state instead of just taking the tablespaces online and offline
