Cannot delete dbf file (NT 4.0)
Posted on 1999-01-12
We are running oracle 7.34 on Windows NT (4.0 SP3).
I am unable to delete or rename dbf file. The db is
shutdown but I get the following OS message:
Cannot delete filename: there has been a sharing violation. The source or destination file may be in use.
Windows NT diagnostics shows that Oracle service for
the instance is running, as is Oracle Start and Oracle TNS
Do one or all of these services have to be terminated to free the lock on the file? If so, should I delete them from the Oracle instance manager? Or could another service be locking down the file?
Thanks much for your time and help.
