  1. Hi, Nicely described, almost the same activity i intend to perform.
    i have to have one confirmation:
    will this all cause any downtime????

    1. No these operations are not expected to cause any downtime.
      But as as always in a RAC and high production env you should test
      and verify any change on a test cluster first.
