Subject: New database ID - NID!

Quite A funny utility name I thought! Anyway

Linux Redhat 4 Oracle 10 - trying to change database name

Anyone got NID (New database ID) to work?

I always get this

NID-00135: There are 1 active threads

DB has been up for a day so it cant be recovery threads.

I will go back to the old fashioned way of achieving this but just wondered if it ever works?
