I don't know the UNIX commands off-hand, you'll have to check your UNIX guides.

As for Oracle, it is very easy. You first create the raw volumes in UNIX. Then, you use the CREATE DATABASE and CREATE TABLESPACE commands, appending the REUSE clause. That is all.


CREATE TABLESPACE TEMP DATAFILE '/u01/oradata/ORACL/temp01.dbf' size 500M REUSE;
