The DROP DATABASE command isn't available in 9i. However, you can you DBCA to delete a database in 9i.

As already said drop database does not exist in 9i.
Use "rm" if you don't want to use dbca.

C:\>del /?
Supprime un ou plusieurs fichiers.

DEL [/P] [/F] [/S] [/Q] [/A[[:]attributs]] noms
ERASE [/P] [/F] [/S] [/Q] [/A[[:]attributs]] noms

  noms          Spécifie une liste d'un ou plusieurs fichiers ou répertoires.
                Les caractères génériques peuvent être utilisés pour
                supprimer plusieurs fichiers. Si un répertoire est spécifié,
                tous les fichiers qu'il contient seront supprimés.

  /P            Demande une confirmation avant de supprimer un fichier.
  /F            Force la suppression de fichiers en lecture seule.
  /S            Supprime les fichiers dans tous les sous-répertoires.
  /Q            Pas de confirmation avant suppression avec car. génériques.
  /A            Suppression en fonction des attributs
  attributs     R  Fichiers en lecture seule   S  Fichiers système
                H  Fichiers cachés             A  Fichiers prêts pour archive
                -  Préfixe de négation

Si les extensions de commandes sont activées, DEL et ERASE sont modifiées
comme suit :
La logique d'affichage du commutateur /S est inversée. Elle
n'affiche que les fichiers supprimés, et pas ceux qui n'ont pas été trouvés.

Sorry for french but you can do the same on your platform.

Michel

C:\>DEL /?
Deletes one or more files.

DEL [/P] [/F] [/S] [/Q] [/A[[:]attributes]] names
ERASE [/P] [/F] [/S] [/Q] [/A[[:]attributes]] names

  names         Specifies a list of one or more files or directories.
                Wildcards may be used to delete multiple files. If a
                directory is specified, all files within the directory
                will be deleted.

  /P            Prompts for confirmation before deleting each file.
  /F            Force deleting of read-only files.
  /S            Delete specified files from all subdirectories.
  /Q            Quiet mode, do not ask if ok to delete on global wildcard
  /A            Selects files to delete based on attributes
  attributes    R  Read-only files            S  System files
                H  Hidden files               A  Files ready for archiving
                -  Prefix meaning not

If Command Extensions are enabled DEL and ERASE change as follows:

The display semantics of the /S switch are reversed in that it shows
you only the files that are deleted, not the ones it could not find.

Hi Arju,

I think you're referring to this:

Quote:

Yah, was thinking about what Michael posted:

Or use the rm command!

Regards
Michel




is he referring to rm command of unix or RMAN?

how about the database registered in RMAN? do we have to manually unregister it before deleting the database? or just delete the database upfront? Smile

rm command of OS. Available in Unix. If you have windows you can use graphical window to delete or command prompt.

You will use OS command. Don't bother about RMAN register or unregister.
