RDBPROD: Support For Single-File Databases (Doc ID 461013.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version 7.0.9 and later
HP OpenVMS Alpha
HP OpenVMS Itanium
HP OpenVMS VAX

Goal

The Oracle Rdb 7.0.9 release notes say:

11.1.54 Support for Single-File Databases to be Dropped in a Future Release

Oracle Rdb currently supports both single-file and multifile databases on OpenVMS. However, single-file databases will not be supported in a future release of Oracle Rdb. At that time, Oracle Rdb will provide the means to easily convert single-file databases to multifile databases.

However, neither the Oracle Rdb 7.1.5.1 release notes, nor those for 7.2.1.4 say this. Is this an oversight or have plans changed?
