You have recently experienced a number of disk drive failures and are becoming a bit worried that you might get hit with multiple drive failures at once, causing you to lose your control file. To allow yourself to sleep better at night, you decide to add a new control file to your database.


Go through the process of adding a control file to your COIN database. Remember to change the control_files parameter in your initialization file, and remember that Oracle reads only that file when you start an instance.
