Hi guys,  

          I'm migrating a number of 32 &64 bit DBs to new servers with "rman"

At some point we'll be upgrading them there.    

        They asked me to rename all files to new naming (directory) standards.

I'm not big "rman" user, but everything has gone well so far until I hit the largest DB.  

  It's about 800G and at first only 500 was allocated.

When it was pointed out we needed another 500 it was allocated but to another 500G directory.  

When doing the restore how can I get some files to go to the new FS?

Or do I have to have them increase old FS?  

  I've tried the SET NEWNAME command and when I run it it says it worked but the files always want to go to original place.    

 RUN     {

SET NEWNAME FOR DATAFILE '/x/system01.dbf' TO '/y/system01.dbf' ;


The others were easy. Just changed initora and moved controlfiles to new directory.

Then ran

ALTER DB RENAME (had linked old directories to new ones)  

            Again this is  

            THX             Larry
