All:

Getting the following alert log error when attempting to start redo log apply for a DG standby node:

Errors in file /home/oracle/admin/stbydb2/bdump/stbydb2_mrp0_22855.trc:
ORA-01111: name for data file 309 is unknown - rename to correct file
ORA-01110: data file 309: '/home/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/dbs/UNNAMED00309'
ORA-01157: cannot identify/lock data file 309 - see DBWR trace file
ORA-01111: name for data file 309 is unknown - rename to correct file
ORA-01110: data file 309: '/home/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/dbs/UNNAMED00309

I have several references from Metalink and other on how to rename the target filename to eliminate the failed UNNAMED file write....however, it is not clear from the logs what the original filename was, and therefore, what the target file name should be. I am concerned that renaming it incorrectly will not eliminate the problem, or will change it from an UNNAMED file problem to an incorrectly named file problem. It not clear from the primary server logs either.

Any references on "expanding" the error in the alert log to ID the original file name that this needs to be renamed to?

Thanks!

Do you see messages in the alert log for multiple files?

I only see the one UNNAMED00309 file reference in the alert log. I have scanned back, and no others are occurring.

Repeating message in the Primary alert log....

Redo Shipping Client Connected as PUBLIC

This sequence been occurring since installation (> 1 year ago), and the ORA-16009 error is a known bug in 10.2.0 -- it goes all the way back to the initial installation, even though log application had been occurring up until several months ago.

What is the output of the following from both your primary and standby:
sho parameter log_archive_dest

And what I meant by what's in the primary is do you see any mention of renaming or adding a new datafile in the primary alert log?

On your other question, there are no other errors or alarms in the alert log of the primary related to adding or renaming files -- I have review going back for ~ 1 year, and dont see any of these references.

Does file # 309 correspond to a data file on the primary?

It appears that your ORA-16009 is resolved with 10.2.0.3.

I reviewed the Primary, and there was no file in any of the data, dbs or related directories ending with *309 or similar. So, I renamed the UNNAMED to a known unused name, and turned on standby_file_management=auto, and then executed "recover automatic standby database" --this then allowed all pending logs to be applied.

I still have an error occuring after the last log was applied -- reviewing this now -- more to come.

I suspect that you have more than 309 datafiles in this DB.
What file_name is associated with FileID=309?

Sonumalhi,

Sorry -- not sure about the others, but I did not see the previous emails from you inquiring about this. This problem was related to a previous company and project, and I no longer regularly engage on Dataguard, so I dont check the lists that often.

It has been a while, and the exact solution was a bit circuitous in finding -- as I remember, the error was related to one of the archive files being corrupted after it was sent from primary to backup, and so part of the solution was to:

- Close the backup instance
- Create a backup of the current archive directory
- Manually copy the archive files from the DG primary
to the backup
- Open/close the oracle instance in backup mode, and have
it start resyncing

As I noted, it has been while, so I would want a more seasoned DG expert to qualify the process I just described. Sorry I am not more details in my memory on this, but as I remember, this was one of several different problems I needed to know down to get these two Oracle instances resynced.
