I want to move a blob index created on tablespace a to tablespace b.
I tried to rebuild the index and got this error:
ORA-02327: cannot create index on column with datatype LOB

I also tried to drop the index and got this error:
ORA-22864: cannot ALTER or DROP LOB indexes

Is there any way I can move this index to the new tablespace ??

Try using the following syntax

ALTER TABLE employee MODIFY LOB

This should work.

Hi,
Thanks, but I can't find anywhere I can change the tablespace of the index with this command.
Do you know the exact syntax (if there is...) for that ?

I couldn't find any option to move the tablespace used by the lob segment in ALTER TABLE MODIFY LOB statement.

ALTER TABLE employee MODIFY LOB (resume) (CACHE);

I was referring to this statement. But I think I made a mistake saying that it can be used to change the tablespace. You can change other storage charecteristics though.

Sorry!

U can't drop or alter LOB indexes.

U can export the table to HD or DAT and then drop the table. Then u can import the table specifying index tablespace as different one. This should work.

Hi sebno

U can allocate a different tablespace to the lob at time of creation or at time of adding a lob column
