or do the same as temp tablespaces: assign a set of schemas to each. I do multiple temps all the time, one for each application set. Why can't I do the same for undo?

Yes, sure: cross schema access could present a problem. But that's what assigning undo per schema, like we do for temp, would be for.

Just pick all relevant schemas and assign them the same undo. And another for the next set. Exactly the same as for temp. Received on Sun Jan 15 2012 - 19:28:03 CST
