** XDB Removal and Reinstall **

XDB Removal

The catnoqm.sql script drops XDB.

spool xdb_removal.log
set echo on;
connect / as sysdba
shutdown immediate;
spool off;

Some XDB related objects in the SYS schema are not dropped during the removal of XDB. Also, the SYS.KU$_% views will become invalid. Please see the following document for cleaning up these objects:

(Doc ID 1269470.1) XDB Deinstallation script catnoqm.sql leads to Invalid SYS Objects

** XDB Installation **

The catqm.sql script requires the following parameters be passed to it when run:

A. XDB user password
B. XDB user default tablespace
(Any tablespace other than SYSAUX, SYSTEM, UNDO and TEMP can be specified.
The specified tablespace must already exist prior to running the script.
Sample tablespace creation:
create tablespace xdb datafile ‘<$ORACLE_BASE>/oradata/<SID>/xdb01.dbf’ size 350M autoextend on segment space management auto; )
C. XDB user temporary tablespace
D. YES or NO
(If YES is specified, the XDB repository will use SecureFile storage.
If NO is specified, LOBS will be used.
To use SecureFiles, compatibility must be set to 11.2.
The tablespace specified for the XDB repository must be using
Automatic Segment Space Management (ASSM) for SecureFiles to be used.)

Therefore the syntax to run catqm.sql is the following:
SQL> catqm.sql A B C D

For Example:
SQL> @?/rdbms/admin/catqm.sql XDB XDB TEMP YES

## IMPORTANT: You must shutdown and restart the database between removal and reinstall ##

spool xdb_install.log
set echo on;
connect / as sysdba
shutdown immediate;
@?/rdbms/admin/catqm.sql <XDB pwd> <XDB default tbs> <XDB temporary tbs> <YES or NO> — substitute the parameters with appropriate values
spool off


** XDB in Oracle 12c is Mandatory **

Oracle XML DB is now a mandatory component of Oracle Database. You cannot uninstall it, and if Oracle XML DB is not already installed in your database prior to an upgrade to Oracle Database 12c Release 1 ( or later, then it is automatically installed in tablespace SYSAUX during the upgrade. If Oracle XML DB has thus been automatically installed, and if you want to use Oracle XML DB, then, after the upgrade operation, you must set the database compatibility to at least If the compatibility is less than then an error is raised when you try to use Oracle XML DB.


Verify XDB Installation

spool xdb_status.txt

set echo on;
connect / as sysdba
set pagesize 1000
col comp_name format a36
col version format a12
col status format a8
col owner format a12
col object_name format a35
col name format a25

— Check status of XDB

select comp_name, version, status
from dba_registry
where comp_id = ‘XDB’;

— Check for invalid objects

select owner, object_name, object_type, status
from dba_objects
where status = ‘INVALID’
and owner in (‘SYS’, ‘XDB’);

spool off;
