No, you do not need the TEMPFILEs.They are required *after* you OPEN the database -- when you run the ALTER TABLESPACE TEMP ADD TEMPFILE ... command.
We, too, have a database that is cloned in a scripted manner -- to a UAT environment. We exclude the TEMPFILEs from the
clone and add them when we open the database. At 06:01 AM Tuesday, Kevin Lange wrote:
