3. Run the CheckDB utility

To run the CheckDB utility, you must first install the Oracle Database Client Tools. To install the Oracle Database Client Tools, you must first log in to your Oracle Database server instance as the root user and then run the following command: install -dbpath=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db home Once the Oracle Database Client Tools have been installed, you can run the CheckDB utility by entering the following command: CheckDB The CheckDB utility will display a list of the current errors and warnings in your Oracle Database.
