Purpose

Use the tempfileSpec subclause to specify a tempfile by name or absolute file number.

Syntax

tempfileSpec::=

Description of tempfilespec.gif follows
Description of the illustration tempfilespec.gif

Semantics

Syntax Element Description
'filename' Specifies the datafile by using either the full path or a relative filename. If you specify a relative filename, the filename is qualified in a platform-specific manner by the target database.

You can specify an absolute path name, or a path name relative to the Oracle home. Double and single quotes are both valid (although only single quotes are shown in the diagram). Use a question mark (?) to represent the Oracle home and the at sign (@) for the Oracle SID.

integer Specifies the datafile by absolute file number. Obtain the file number from the V$TEMPFILE view or REPORT SCHEMA output.

Examples

Example 3-34 Specifying a Tempfile by Filename

This example renames tempfile /disk1/oradata/prod/temp01.dbf to /disk2/temp01.dbf, specifying it by filename:

SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE
STARTUP MOUNT
RUN
{
  SWITCH TEMPFILE '/disk1/oradata/prod/temp01.dbf'
               TO '/disk2/temp01.dbf';
}
ALTER DATABASE OPEN;

Note that the database must be mounted when performing this example.
