Re: all time worst question I have been ever asked as a DBA

According to nearly every User, SysAdmin, NetAdmin and StorAdmin I know:

Rule 1:  It's the DBA's fault

Rule 2: You can change anything arbitrarily without telling the DBA, it'll still be the DBA's fault.

Rule 3: Even when the DBA shows exactly where (in another area) the problem is, It still is the DBA's fault.

Developers add:

Performance, security and integrity are add-ons, after the fact. When they are needed, it's the DBA's fault.

Common with netapp, you can actually try copying the file to a new file. Delete that file, and then rename the copy back. I think that will work, but it can be a pain.

So, I am getting this error on one of our virtual Linux servers:

ORA-00210: cannot open the specified control file
ORA-00202: control file: '/u01/app/oracle/datafiles/devdb/control01.ctl'
ORA-27086: unable to lock file - already in use

Its probably due to a stale NFS lock.  The question from my sys admin:

-rw-r----- 1 oracle oinstall 10076160 Jul 22 13:33 control01.ctl

can that file just be removed




Ok, I am a little frustrated with him...
