I try to create a database file in this location enter image description here

I've checked the route and everything, I've tried several times to create the tablespace like this...

enter image description here

...but as you can see, I was just lead to several errors. What can I do? What am I doing wrong?

  • Do you have permission on that directory? Under which user are you running SQL*PLUS? Administrator?

  • @JSapkota the user you are logged into Oracle as does not matter. It's the Oracle service that needs permission on the directory in order to create the datafile

Do you have permission on this directory? Under which user are you running SQL*PLUS? Administrator? – if no than got permission first

if yes

CREATE TABLESPACE lmtbsb DATAFILE 'file_path/lmtbsb01.dbf' SIZE 50M
  • I'm logged as SYSTEM... When I try to use that order, it leads me to the same error. Thank you very much for your quick answer though!

  • you are not added '01' or any other 'file_path/lmtbsb01.dbf' in your file_name add it than create Nov 29 '16 at 11:49
  • Do you mean create a something01.dfb file as in your example apart from the one I want to create, or that I should add the "01" next to the name of my file? I'm sorry, I know I am an absolute newbie.
