Adding User to temporary tablespace

I get an error running a dbms_metadata.get_ddl query.  I need to have the DBA fix it, but I need to understand if what I'm asking the DBA to do is practical.  This is not a production database, by the way.

Error:  Temporary Tablespace is Empty

If I ask the DBA to alter my account and add temporary tablespace, is that correct?  Is this something common?  

(I'm not oracle by background)

From your previous question, your user's default temp tablespace is named TEMP.

Just have the DBA create a temporary tablespace named TEMP and you should be good to go.

As far as being practical, I mentioned this in the other question as well.  Oracle should have a temporary tablespace.  If it doesn't, then it uses the SYSTEM tablespace (at least it used to) to do things like sorting.  This isn't a great way to run a database even if it isn't production.

I suppose I should add that the DBA 'can' call it anything they want.  TEMP is sort of standard.

They would just make it the database's default temporary tablespace then alter the user's default to that.

Thanks.  I try to be...  :)


I know you are frustrated with Oracle right now but give it a chance.  The very little I do with SQL Server, I cannot imagine people actually use it.  It's so foreign to me...

Just seems there's so many little configurations in Oracle.  But I imagine that's a good thing for flexibility, tuning, etc...

I honestly appreciate all the help you've given me.
