Re: Is it possible to add existing datafiles to an oracle database?

Oracle has a very expensive tool that will do this for you. I also believe there is a third party tool out there somewhere that will do this too, don't know what that costs, but I doubt it's cheap.
The question is, why wont your database come up? What kind of error are you getting? Are you sure it can not be recovered?

I ended up with a crashed Oracle db, which refuses to start. I have all the datafiles for this database and was wondering if it is possible to somehow "Load / Import" the data in these datafiles into another working database. If yes, it will save me quite a lot of re-work. Can somebody help me on this please ....
