Hi Friends,

We have created a new 11gR2 instance on Windows 2012 R2. By mistake, control files are created with same names in 2 different disk - D:\oracle\oradata\prod\control01.ctl, E:\oracle\oradata\prod\control02.ctl, J:\oracle\oradata\prod\control02.ctl (instead of control03.ctl). Is it OK for Oracle to have same names for control files in different locations?

From my research, found that control file can be renamed. To rename the control file in J:\ to control03.ctl, please let me know if the below steps are correct

alter system set control_files='D:\oracle\oradata\prod\control01.ctl', 'E:\oracle\oradata\prod\control02.ctl','J:\oracle\oradata\prod\control03.ctl' scope=spfile;
shutdown immediate;
manually rename control file in the filesystem in J:\ to J:\oracle\oradata\prod\control03.ctl
startup

Please advice.

THank you so much in advance

It's perfectly OK to have Control Files with the same names in different locations, but it may be a bit confusing (or at least look unprofessional).

You procedure looks more or less right.

Good luck!
