Resolving the ORA-1630 error

I'm running out of space and trying to get more by all means. I did not have room to rebuild the index, and I kept...

getting "ORA-1652 unable to extent temp segment by 1025 in tablespace. So I dropped the index and tried to recreate it. Now I get "ORA-1630 max # extents (249) reached in temp segment in tablespace." Any suggestion on how to fix this?

To fix the ORA-1630 error, you'll need to change the STORAGE limits on the index. You can do this by issuing the following command:

ALTER INDEX index_name STORAGE (MAXEXTENTS 500);
Now the index can allocate up to 500 extents (more than the 249).
