ORACLE SAP DATAFILE

Hello All,

Oracle is 10G.

Currently system is running 4 sap datafiles .

oracle/SID/sapdata1

oracle/SID/sapdata2

oracle/SID/sapdata3

oracle/SID/sapdata4

Now can we make it as one datafile (we required to only one file system - oracle/SID/sapdata1).

Please let me know it is possible to make single sapdata1 ?

Please advise and provide steps also .

    Hi John

    for this , you need to follow the simple steps as below :

    a) Note down location of the current data files and where you want to move them

    SQL> select name from v$datafile;

    b) shutdown the SAP and DB -

    c) Copy the files physically from the different sapdata's to the single location u want ..

    d) then mount the DB - Startup mount

    e) alter database rename file '<old file location>' to '<new file location>' ;

    Please note that u have to give the complete name of the file including path..

    f) Then alter database open;

    use the query in a) to check the location of the data files now.

    Thanks

    Rishi
