Hello Experts,

I am getting error while while upgrading from varchar2(4000) to varchar2(32k) , that is applying MAX_STRING_SIZE='EXTENDED' .

Steps followed under sys user:

1.alter system set max_string_size=EXTENDED scope=spfile;
2. sqlplus / as sysdba -shutdown immediate
3.Startup upgrade
4.@?/rdbms/admin/utl32k.sql

Open in new window


After running this we got the message :

plsql procedure sucessfully completed and then :

ORA-01555 Snapshot Too Old

I did a mistake after executing the script . I didn't shut-down and restarted the database.
When I did that I was able to start it successfully.

I didn't made any change on undo.

Let me know if I can close this ticket or not.

I executed the "utl32k.sql" script again and after it was successfully completed, I shut-down the database and then finally started the database .

It worked for me. Not sure why it was giving the error.

Can you please let me know if I have followed the right steps to make larger undo tablespace :

 Add new data files to it:

ALTER TABLESPACE myundo
     ADD DATAFILE '*****\undo02.dbf' SIZE 200M AUTOEXTEND ON
                   NEXT 100M MAXSIZE UNLIMITED;

yes, that's the correct method for adding a file.

alternately, you could extend the files you already have to make them larger.

neither way is necessarily better, use whatever is easiest for you.
