Adding a Tablespace to a PUM

Somehow I misplaced or mistyped the SYS password on the last PUM install that I did. I learned a few things as a result…

Oracle is using Container Database technology. It made things a little challenging.

I should have been able to connect with:

sqlplus SYS@HR92U092 as sysdba

Inspecting the environment, it looks like the database name is CDHCM.

[oracle2@ps ~]$ ps -ef | grep pmon
oracle2   3691     1  0 Sep26 ?        00:00:40 ora_pmon_CDBHCM
oracle2  32310 23161  0 01:35 pts/0    00:00:00 grep pmon
[oracle2@ps ~]$ cat /proc/3691/environ | xargs -0 -n1 | grep ORACLE
ORACLE_SID=CDBHCM
ORACLE_HOME=/opt/oracle/psft/db/oracle-server/12.1.0.2
ORACLE_SPAWNED_PROCESS=1

So, I can log in using OS security:

su - oracle2
export ORACLE_SID=CDBHCM
sqlplus / as sysdba

I can see where all of the data files are located at this point:

select file#, name from v$datafile

I can see that all of the data files are located in the directory:
/opt/oracle/psft/db/oradata/HR92U027

At this point, if you create the tablespace, it will go into the root container instead of the PeopleSoft database. If you already did it, you’ll need to delete the tablespace first:

drop tablespace GTCAPP including contents and datafiles;

You can see the list of databases in the root container:

SELECT PDB_ID, PDB_NAME, STATUS, CON_ID FROM CDB_PDBS;

You have to switch over to the PeopleSoft database with an alter session command:

SQL> show con_name;

CON_NAME
------------------------------
CDB$ROOT
SQL> alter session set container = HR92U027;    

Session altered.

SQL> show con_name;

CON_NAME
------------------------------
HR92U027

Here’s the tablespace that I am trying to create:

CREATE TABLESPACE GTCAPP DATAFILE '/opt/oracle/psft/db/oradata/HR92U027/gtcapp.dbf'
SIZE 50M
DEFAULT STORAGE (INITIAL 64K NEXT 128K MAXEXTENTS 110 PCTINCREASE 0)
/
ALTER DATABASE DATAFILE '/opt/oracle/psft/db/oradata/HR92U027/gtcapp.dbf' AUTOEXTEND ON NEXT 5M MAXSIZE UNLIMITED;

Now that the tablespace is created from the Oracle Database point of view, I can move on to the PeopleSoft point of view. The tablespace needs to be added on the page: PeopleTools > Utilities > Administration > Tablespace Utilities
