    How to add a datafile to a tablespace

    I've run out of space in my TS1D tablespace. How do I add a file to the tablespace?

    Note: The following describes the use of Aleph util O. It can also be done directly, natively in Oracle. Though util o/14/1 displays the tablespaces correctly in a Two-Task set-up, util o/13 can't be used to add a file to a tablespace in this arrangement. If you have an Oracle database administrator, that person should be doing this.

    The following is an abbreviated description of this process. To see a longer, complete description, click on the Attachments tab.

    In UTIL-O-13-1 ("List of Database Files") we see this for the TS1D tablespace:

    TS1D /exlibris1/oradata/aleph2/aleph2_ts1d_01.dbf 2014208 8

    That is, one two-gig datafile.

    "df -k /exlibris1" shows us that there is space available, so I suggest adding a second 2-gig file:.

    You would do this through UTIL-O-13-3:.

    Enter Tablespace name: TS1D.
    Enter new file name: /exlibris1/oradata/aleph2/aleph2_ts1d_02.dbf.
    Enter file size (MB): 2000
