AIX stand-alone: Assign custom Oracle or Oracle RAC table spaces

The repository of WebSphere Portal consists of many tables and indicecreated in default table spaces. When using an existing set of table spaces for the objects of the repository, specify this when executing the database transfer to the target database system.

Before beginning:

If custom table spaces are assigned, each must be assigned explicitly. The default table spaces can be used to contain database objects; however the name of the default table space must be specified in the corresponding mapping files. This applies to all database domains that are transferred in a single database transfer.

Configure custom table space assignments

  1. Determine the names of the custom table spaces.

  2. Open the mapping file...


      /ul> that specifies the table space and index space property pairs for each database table:

      • dbdomain.table_name.tablespace
      • dbdomain.table_name.index_name.indexspace

      For the file name and each table space and index space property pair, dbdomain can be any one of the following values:

      • release
      • community
      • customization
      • jcr
      • feedback
      • likeminds

      For jcr, edit mapping file:


      ...which contains additional table space and index space property pairs for each jcr.table_name.tablespace database table.

    • Assign a table space to each entry in the mapping file. The table space name must be prepended by the keyword TABLESPACE and a space.

      For example...

        community.COMP_INST.tablespace=TABLESPACE COMM8KSPACE

      Repeat this step for each domain that we are transferring.

    • Save and close dbdomain.space_mapping.properties

    • From a command prompt, specify the option...


      ...when starting the database transfer.

      For example,

        ./ConfigEngine.sh database-transfer -DuseCustomTablespaceMapping=true
