Hi
I have created a tablespace as follows:
create tablespace MD_DATA
datafile'/opt/app/oradata01/HMPROD/jmd_data_01.dbf' size 30000m
blocksize 32k
extent management local autoallocate;

The tablesapce has about 48 datafiles total 1.5 Terabytes

How can I change the  initial_extent to 32 M and allocation_type to uniform without dropping and recreate
the tablespace with all of the datatypes?

I may have to try this, ablakios -- but I'm reasonably certain an initial check and allocation cannot be modified in 10g or earlier.  Here's the syntax:

It is not possible to alter initial extent after tablespace is created and data allocation on a tablespace is greater than 32MB in your case.

Why do you want to create an initial extent of 32MB? When datafile count = 48. what type of performance gain you have in mind by creating an initial extent of 32MB?

I suggest, create a new tablespace with initial extent size of 32MB and use transportable tablespace to move datafiles to a new tablespace.
