I need some help. I have a database running Oracle database and we changed some unused data files from 2 GB to 500 MB. The only problem is that the OS still shows them as taking up 2 GB. Can someone help? I listed the specifics as well as the output from the UNIX server.

Oracle version: 7.3.4
Operating System: Solaris 2.6
Hardware: Clustered E3500s
Cluster Software: Veritas
File system: UFS
Volume Manager: Veritas 3.4

Server output:

According to oracle, the following datafile is allocated at 488M:
-rw-r----- 1 oracle dba 2097160192 Oct 21 18:37 .sf2kdata1_1.dbf

So is it oracle or operating system? One of them doesn't want to give it up!

Thanks for you help!

Oracle doesn't give up. The resolution is to reboot your database.
