RE: Database recovery problem

Onkar,

 

It is asking for an archive file because the dummy file that you created
is not an Oracle database file.  So it is trying to bring it up to date.
Even though you are not running in archivelog mode, Oracle still acts
the same way - that is, it is keeping track of what would be the correct
archivelog file even though it did not write them out to disk.

 

You have one option:

 

Startup mount;

Alter datafile 'D:\DB\ORADATA\BODEV\NMSANDBOX_DATA.ORA' offline.

Alter database open.

 

You will be able to export all of the data in the database except what
was stored in this data file.  This will allow you to import it into
another database.

 

So all of your data is not gone - just the stuff in this
file/tablespace.  Everything else has been lost.

 

Good Luck!

 

Tom

Subject: Database recovery problem

 

hi all,

 

We have got one oracle 9i rel 2 on windows 2000 running in no-archive
log mode. the problem is one of the dba of the other team has deleted
some of the dbf files while the database was running and tablespace was
online. after deleting the file he re-started the database which while
opening throw error saying that file needs recovery. I was told to do
this . I have created the dbf files also but while recovering the dbfs
using RECOVER DATAFILE ' 'D:\DB\ORADATA\BODEV\NMSANDBOX_DATA.ORA';
command its asking for the archive files . output is below mentioned : 


SQL> recover datafile 'D:\DB\ORADATA\BODEV\NMSANDBOX_DATA.ORA';
ORA-00279: change 38062424 generated at 05/13/2005 00:52:05 needed for
thread 1
ORA-00289: suggestion : F:\ORACLE\ORA92\RDBMS\ARC00397.001
ORA-00280: change 38062424 for thread 1 is in sequence #397


Specify log: {<RET>=suggested | filename | AUTO | CANCEL}

I dont know why its asking for the archive files.??? Btw the team who is
owning the database has not taken any backup. If anyone has got the
problem like this , plz. share ur experience so that I can perform this.

 

TIA
