Hello :

I need to rename an existing database (10.2.3). In the past (about 10 years ago and oracle 7) I was able to take the create controlfile command (via alter database rebuild controlfile to trace), replace the filesystem name and the database name with a new instance name, rename all the filesystems accordingly, execute the create controlfile command and be done.

As I said I have not done it in about 10 years. Can this still be done like that? Am I missing anything?

thank you

Gene Gurevich
