    DBNEWID Revert back

      Hi all,

       

      11.2.0.1

      aix6

       

      I was changing my DBNAM from NEWDB to NEWPRODDB

       

      $ nid TARGET=SYS DBNAME=NEWPRODDB SETNAME=YES

       

       

      DBNEWID: Release 11.2.0.1.0 - Production on Fri Feb 14 10:47:19 2014

      NID-00109: DBNAME string length 11 exceeds maximum length of 8

       

      Change of database name failed during validation - database is intact.

      DBNEWID - Completed with validation errors.

       

       

      Is there a workaround for this? The required dbname is 9 chars.

       

      Thanks

      pK
