    Unanswered: Removed a tablespace and datafiles 9i

    The alert log shows that the datafiles associated to the tablespace dropped were deleted.

    But on the HP unix server, the lvol2 is still 97% full. There should have been a reduction of at least 5%.

    Would appreciate any advice as to why after the datafiles have been deleted, the used space is still showing the same?

    Can't figure out what else needs to be updated, refreshed....etc

    Thanks

    What does the HP unix server say? are the files still there?
    What does lsof command tell you? are the files deleted but still open?

    The files are not present on the HPUX server anymore.

    The alert log shows that the datafiles pertaining to the tablespace dropped were deleted.

    Not run lsof yet. Do not have admin rights on the HPUX server. That's what I've been suspecting that the files might still be in use somewhere but can't think of where.

    Just thought I'd update....

    Actually df -sk shows the correct size of the volume. But 'bdf' is mis-leading. Must be a bug.
