I am also into a similar situation. CSALTER results into:
. . .This command is undocumented/unsupported and should not be used - it will likely corrupt your database beyond repair - hopefully you have a good backup of the database that you can recover from.
Checking data validity...
Unrecognized convertible data found in scanner result
PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.
Checking or Converting phase did not finish successfully
No database (national) character set will be altered
CSALTER finished unsuccessfully.
. . .
After this I tried altering the database character set:
SQL> ALTER DATABASE CHARACTER SET INTERNAL_USE AL32UTF8;
Is this a correct way ?Also, pl do not hijack an old post - pl post your issue in a new thread.
I was able to convert the database character set but I still curious to know if it is the right way to do it.
Any suggestion would be a great help.
