I have taken an initiative of writing a best article which contains proper steps for creating a tablespace in the oracle database in an SAP system.  You must read this article completely to get full clarity of creating tablespace in the oracle database of an SAP system.

Step-by-step procedure to create new tablespace in the oracle database of an SAP system:

Log on to the(Windows OS)host where the database instance of an SAP system is installed

Make sure that you have logged into the host using <SID>ADM user. Replace the <SID> with system identifier of your SAP system. You can also log in as Administrator account, but you need to create environment variables for ORACLE_SID and SAPDATA_HOME

Open command prompt using run-cmd. You can also use program files – accessories – command prompt to open command prompt (Black DOS screen)

Following prompt will be displayed in the black screen


Enter the following command as shown

C:UsersAdministrator> sqlplus/nolog
