That method still works.

  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
