This illustration shows two CDBs. Both CDBs have a
CDB$ROOT container, a
PDB$SEED container plugged into the root, and several PDBs plugged into the root. The top CDB has one PDB that is being relocated. The bottom CDB has one new PDB that was relocated from the top CDB. The illustration shows a database link going from the CDB root in the bottom CDB to the CDB root in the top CDB. The illustration shows the files of the PDB being relocated. The illustration shows the PDB’s files moved to a new location. The illustration shows the moved files associated with the new PDB. A
RELOCATE statement uses these moved files to create the new PDB.
