HI,

Using, database configuration assistant,I created a new database on a user's laptop with database name as CORREST.(I tried dbname as CORRESTDEV, but it gave me error saying the database name should be between 1 and 8 characters).The user wants me to rename the database to CORRESTDEV.
Can somebody help me how to rename the database? Oracle is running on 9.2.0.1 and OS is windows XP.

Thank you,all.

Hi,
Your db name should be of 8 characters only, you can not put more then 8 characters. If you want to rename your database you have to create controlfile in textual format and then edit with new db name and start up your database.

Hi, Once you get your controlfile trace after that you have to shutdwon database and modify the text file like here below

REATE CONTROLFILE REUSE DATABASE "TIGER" RESETLOGS NOARCHIVELOG
to
CREATE CONTROLFILE SET DATABASE "LION" RESETLOGS NOARCHIVELOG
.... Make sure your database mode, either it's archive log or no-archive log mode.

Harsh

Hi,
Your db name should be of 8 characters only, you can not put more then 8 characters


You can create more than 8 character DATABASE_NAME not INSTANCE_NAME/SERVICE_NAME/ORACLE_SID it is must in 8 character.

or you can rename dbname through DBNEWID utility.

Taj
