Hello Experts,

i want to create tablespace in raw partion on windows.

I have added a hard disk and added extended partition to it. Then created 4 logical partitions of 256 MB with diskpart.exe.
I have assigned a drive letter to one of them as X:

However, I am having trouble in creating tablespace on it. I referred to http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/win.111/b32010/ap_raw.htm

I get following error,

1. The default unit for file size is bytes.

2. Since you gave the partition a drive letter, that is what you must specify. You can't add '\accounting_1' to it, there is no file system on a raw partition.

3. Raw devices will be desupported in relase 12.

4. No DBA has used raw devices for decades, unless there was absolutely no alternative.
