Oracle Storage Manager shows a database as needing recovery
Oracle storage manager shows a database as needing recovery.
Oracle has identified that some corruption has occurred on the database.
- Try: (this requires archive logs)
Recover datafile ‘<datafile-name>’;
- Restore the database from backup and reapply any archive log files.
- If the database is a standby database then check the procedure for
copying the file in the first place. A common mistake is to perform
a hot backup of a database but without issuing a ‘
alter tablespace ... begin backup ... end backup’ for the tablespace in question.
This page represents one page of many pages of notes I made whilst working with Oracle 7 through to 10i. I now no longer work with Oracle databases, but hope that these notes will continue to be of benefit to others.
