Hi,

I really need someone's help to solve this problem. I am not very sure what I need to correct this problem. Any help will be appreciate. Thanks in advance.

We have Oracle 10.2.0.4 installed for database and we use oracle 11.1.0.0 for storage of datafiles including the archive logs.

I get this error when restarting the database and with the ASM already up and running

SQL> startup
ORACLE instance started.

I would check with archive log destination to see if it ran out of space.
