Drop Database Command Demo

From 10g onwards, we have Drop Database command, that made a fast and efficient cleanup of all datafiles, redologs and control files in one command.

Drop database do require to mount the database in exclusive restricted mode.

The steps are as follows:

•shutdown abort;

•startup mount exclusive restrict;

•drop database;

Here is a Demo:-
$ . oraenv

ORACLE_SID = [oracle] ? miadev07

The Oracle base for ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/ is /u01/app/oracle/product/

dev07: /home/oracle

$ sqlplus / as sysdba
