Well, actually, as of version 8.1.6, you CAN migrate a dictionary managed tablespace to locally managed. To do so you invoke a PL/SQL script in the DBMS_SPACE_ADMIN package called "TABLESPACE_MIGRATE_TO_LOCAL". If you are on 8i release 2 or above, check it out!

The tablespace cannot be changed from Data Dictionary to Locally Managed after it's been created (according to some documentation I found). The tablespace must be created that way from the begining:

DATAFILE '/BLAH/BLAH/BLAH.DBF' SIZE 100M EXTENT MANAGEMENT LOCAL ONLINE PERMANENT; It also appears that the rollback tablespace MAY NOT be locally managed. After creating it as such it would not let me create rollbacks in the tablespace until I recreated it as data dictionary managed.

Thanks to all who replied,
