I'm running out of space in the /oracle/oradata/sid1 dir. Can you show me how to recover it back? Following are the actual commands used on my server:


$ls -ltr
total 1045906
-rw-r----- 1 oracle dba 512512 Aug 11 19:46 redosid101.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle dba 1050624 Aug 11 19:48 users01.dbf
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle dba 26216448 Aug 11 19:48 tools01.dbf
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle dba 109840384 Aug 11 19:48 temp01.dbf
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle dba 262146048 Aug 11 19:48 system01.dbf
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle dba 134219776 Aug 11 19:48 rbs01.dbf
-rw-r----- 1 oracle dba 1484800 Aug 11 20:54 control01.ctl

$df -k /oracle/oradata/sid1
Filesystem kbytes used avail capacity Mounted on
/dev/vx/dsk/nfsss1_dg/vol42 524288 524183 104 100% /oracle1

As you can see, the system is getting full and I really NEED some help. Your help is much appreciated.

Hi Trau Con

U relocate some of u'r datafiles some other disks.
Locate the disks where u hv sufficent disk space.
I think users or temp temp tablespace bring it offline
sql > alter tablespace users offline
sql> alter tablespace users rename datafile '/oracle/oradata/sid1/users01.dbf' to
sql> alter tablespace users online;
U'r Job is done. But I would sugest is use
ln -s command to link datafiles from various locations to this /oracle/oradata/sid1 disk. Then U can control u'r i/o activities also better.
