The only supported technique for converting an EE database to SE is export-inport, as documented in note 139642.1. Our client is reluctant to do this because of the downtime involved. It is however possible to open the EE database from an SE home, no problem.
Can anyone come up with solid reason why this should not be done? Perhaps an example of a problem? The note says only Quote:
When you just install the Standard Edition software, you will end up with Data Dictionary objects which are of no use (or perhaps even invalid) and possibly create problems when maintaining the database.
and this isn't really strong enough for me to refuse to do it.

You should better ask Oracle but this sentence is just a way for Oracle to say that if you do so then you are on your own as they no more support your configuration.
So if the fact that Oracle will no more support you is not sufficient enough to not do so then proceed.

Michel

Thank you for replying. We have a TAR open. Not nice situation, but nothing to be done about it.
John.
