We had a non-prod database which was having more than 50% of space as free. Objective was to reclaim the space at OS level and release the space back to storage.
This is an Oracle E-Biz environment.
Ebiz Version – 12.2.2
Oracle DB version – 188.8.131.52
OS – 64 bit Oracle Linux
Tried to resize the datafile as much as possible but could not reclaim enough space. Hence thought of doing the full database re-org using export and import.
This document demonstrates step by step procedure with screenshots to do full database reorg using export/import
Post export/import, I was able to reclaim around 4 TB (65% reduction) of space.
Pls see the result below.
Hope this helps. Happy learning!!!
