Hi Team,
I am working on Amazon RDS instance ( ver. ).Initially aud$ is located under SYSTEM tablespace, and further I have moved aud$ table from SYSTEM to custom tablespace and implemented purge using DBMS_AUDIT_MGMT pkg. Audit data was grown upto 78.5 GB before we move to custom tablespace and implement purge. In Amazon RDS, by default all tablespaces are BIG file type with autoextned enabled including SYSTEM tablespace. Eventhough 78.5 gb is allocated size, only 310 MB used and we need to reclaim those unused space. We don't have access to SYS user. We have access to only RDS master user which is cut down version of SYS.

Could you please guide me how to claim this 78.5 gb from SYSTEM ?

--Sizes are in MB.
