Creating DB on partition > 2TB
Date: Thu, 6 Mar 2008 13:30:02 -0800
I have installed Oracle 10.2.0.3.0 on a server running Centos 4, 2.6.9-67.0.4.Elsmp. This is a new server and installation. I am using the DBCA to create the database which initially will only be 2GB. The partition on which I am attempting to create the database has nearly 3TB of space and when I attempt to create the database dialogue box is presented with the message...
You do not have enough free space
You need 1845248KB
You have -1570091008KB
Oracle is telling me that the DBCA is unable to properly compute space on a partition > 2TB and suggests either creating the database manually, the scripts were created, or dividing the disk into partitions < 2TB. I haven't yet tried to create the database manually as I am concerned about whether or not if the DBCA gets confused with such a large partition that Oracle will also get confused.
So, I'm looking for suggestions or experiences with similar situations.
