Re: OT - Advice for the Oracle Newbie

The most important thing that I learned as a newbie DBA was to never "fix" a 
problem in a way that couldn't be undone. Never delete an OS file; always 
rename the file. If everything's still fine after 2 months then consider 
deleting the renamed file.
 I suspect that new DBAs have caused more full recoveries that any other 
source.
 Just my $.02 (US).
