The goal of this document is to provide instructions to consolidate datafiles scattered across multiple locations into one single folder. To accomplish this task, you will need to meet the following requirements:

  1. A source database with datafiles scattered across multiple locations
  2. A database in your target environment, that will have all the datafile in one single location.

You might want to perform this activity when cloning your Oracle E-Business Suite instance where the datafiles are stored in different locations, and need to have them all into one single place only in your newly cloned environment.
