sqlplus SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.4.0 - Production on Mon Jul 13 09:34:50 2009 Copyright (c) 1982, 2007, Oracle. All Rights Reserved. Enter user-name: / as sysdba Connected to: Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.2.0.4.0 - Production With the Partitioning, OLAP, Data Mining and Real Application Testing options
Yes, it's the same that when I execute select * from v$version. It does not say enterprise word, however I have transportable tablespace and in the runInstaller I have some products installed about enterprise edition.
Just because you have the ability to install products does not mean that you have the license to install those products. You need to check with Oracle Support using your CSI (Customoer Support Identifier) and they will be able to guide you.
Again, just because you can does not mean that you should. No one in this forum can tell you what you are licensed to be able to use.
ok, I understand it, I know my CSI is about SE, and if I have the EE installed I want to downgrade, but before of that, I need know which version I have installed it. Of course, If I have a superior version like EE I downgrade my installation, but how to I know which version of oracle I have installed it?
Do you understand me?
PD: Excuseme but my english is very bad.
I really think that your best bet is to look at Metalink Article 139642.1 "Converting An Enterprise Edition Database To Standard Edition".
The best bet you have is to install the Standard Edition, look at the options, and then you will know which options don't belong.
You can also do a search on Metalink "Differences Between Enterprise, Standard and Personal Editions"
You will find several articles.
you can install partitioning but before you start to use it you must licence this product.
How to check Oracle 10g is Standard or Enterprise Edition
Ok, I read that documents, and in my context file, appear "SE", then I have the Standard Edition. I execute "select * from v$option" and none of features about enterprise edition are enabled. I'm looking for the prize of oracle's options, but I don't know if I can license the oracle partitioning option with my Standar Edition, ie, I have 3 licences of oracle standard edition and I want purchase 3 licenses of oracle partitioning for my database without upgrade to EE. It is possible?
According to http://www.dba-oracle.com/art_so_oracle_standard_enterprise_edition.htm, it is possible, but in the rest of the web I always see that it's not possible, and I don't know.
Can anyone help me?
call to Oracle Sales they give you all information.
Yes, my boss or chief (my english is very bad) must call to my oracle sales, but he is on holidays, and I only want if with my SE can I enabled and license the oracle partitioning option.
Ok Simply put SE does NOT have partitioning.
1) The Ability to do something does not mean you have the Right to do it.
2) Oracle SE does NOT have a partitioning option. If you are seeing it DON"T install it.

Oracle Partitioning N N Y Extra cost option
Can I say it any clearer. Standard Edition (SE) does not have Oracle Partitioning. If you are seeing it as an option then DO NOT install it or you will be out of compliance. CONTACT ORACLE SUPPORT FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Ok, thanks you very much. I will wait for my boss come back for his holidays, and he call our oracle sales. Then he want use oracle partitioning, we have to license to EE, and we have to upgrade from SE to EE.
Thanks you very much!!!
