Re: problem with max extents oracle

Hi Mauro.
If you have access as database administrator,
you should be able to fix this.
You should enhance the next parameter by factor 20 and change the maxextents.
Open the svrmgrl and do the connect internal.
Or open sqlplus as system/passwd.
Then type as shown in sample :
alter index owner.indexname storage (next ..M maxtextents 515 )
;

another thing is to make a note of the storage
parameters of that index, drop it, resize the parameters and rebuild it.
if you need more info, let me know.

Re: problem with max extents oracle

As of Oracle 7.3, you can define unlimited extents :
alter index ... storage (maxextents unlimited);

This will fix your problem. Then you can have a deeper look to set more adequate next extent size.

However, the name of segment you mention looks like a rollback segment. If it is right consider dropping it and recreate it.

Hi Mauro.
Bruno is right, you can go for unlimited extents, but that could give some unwanted results later. If you limit the extents,
you can keep it under control.

Mauro,
go to the init.ora file.
You will find the compatible parameter in there. Set it to the requested value.
