I am getting "ORA-00060: deadlock detected while waiting for resource" while deleting a datafile.
when i checked in dba_data_files and V$datafile the ONLINE_STATUS/STATUS is in RECOVER mode.
I do not need this datafile so i tried to drop using the following command ..
ALTER TABLESPACE DATAP_LARGE DROP DATAFILE 'D:\ORACLE\ORADATA\DATAP\DATAP_LARGE_12.DBF';
I checked the Trace file geenrated for the deadlock, the Session which is in question is the session where i ran the command (SQLPLUS).
Can anybody throw some light on this.
