Changing Database SID in Oracle In case of database migration to new landscape some times we need to change database sid

. Manualy it can be done by creating controlfile & so on. But using nid tool it can be done very easily. Steps: 1. Mount the source database. 2. Run nid target=sys/password@sourcedb dbname=newsid (It will modify controlfile,datafile & every thing & shutdown the database ) 3. The parameter file has to be modified manually. 4. Start the database with new pfile with RESETLOG option. So, now you've successfully changed the db sid. Note: All the previous backup & controlfile will be useless for this new database.
