Hi,

I am trying to add a new control file using:

cp $HOME/sm15/oradata/sm15/control01.ctl
$HOME/sm15/oradata/sm15/control04.ctl

However, when I shutdown the database, start it back up and enter:

SELECT name FROM V$CONTROLFILE;

my new control file(control04.ctl) doesn't show up.
Am I using the right commands?
I appreciate any help anyone has to offer.
Thanks in advance.
