6.2.1 Viewing Control File Information

You can use Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Express (EM Express) to view location and status information about control files.


In a multitenant container database (CDB), EM Express provides control file information only in the root, not in the pluggable databases (PDBs).

To view control file information:

  1. In EM Express, from the Storage menu, select Control Files.

    The Control Files page appears.

    This page shows whether your database has a multiplexed control file. The List of Control Files and Control Files sections give you more detailed information about your control files.

  2. To back up the current control file to a trace file, click Backup to Trace.

    See Oracle Database Backup and Recovery User's Guide for more information about backing up the control file to a trace file.
