This is gonna sound silly but I can't seem to get my create tablespace to work. Never done one before. Says I need a datafile?

I'm using a virtual box for queries to mess around but I want to know how to create tablespace for my user newuser

i tried "create tablespace newspace" after granting myself the create tablespace priv.

I want to know how to do the default, and a basic non-default version of create tablespace please

Here 'ya go!
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b14200/statements_7003.htm

Your DBA must grant you the CREATE TABLESPACE role; then after it's created, the usual steps are to be granted QUOTA xx | UNLIMITED; create table(s) in that tablespace, etc.  Also, the O/S account used has to have write/execute permission on the datafile's directory or file system.

so I don't need a datafile or path to give to the query like this example I saw on psoug?

CREATE TABLESPACE uwdata DATAFILE
'c:\oracle\oradata\orabase\uwdata01.dbf' SIZE 150M,
'c:\oracle\oradata\orabase\uwdata02.dbf' SIZE 100M
AUTOEXTEND OFF
BLOCKSIZE 8192
FORCE LOGGING
EXTENT MANAGEMENT LOCAL UNIFORM SIZE 256K
FLASHBACK ON;

Check the doc link provided.

If you don't provide a full path, there is a default: DB_CREATE_FILE_DEST

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Unless I'm missing something obvious, which I do too often, the 2nd and 3rd rows provide the datafiles, fully pathed.  In case this is new, the tablespace is a logical component of the instance; the datafiles are physical -- so it's a mapping process between the two.

Error messages would be nice.

I assume you have a /data folder and oracle has read/write access to it?

Your second example shifted from a Windows file format to a UNIX one.  Which OS did you mean?
