Hello Experts,
I am trying to move my data files from one location to other as i ran out of space.

SQL> alter database rename file 'C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\oradata\SPF433\SPF433ADW_DATA.DBF' to 'D:\Oracle\Datafiles\SPF433\SPF433ADW_DATA.DBF';
Database Altered

SQL> alter database rename file 'C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\oradata\SPF433\SPF433ADW_DATATEMP.DBF' to 'D:\Oracle\Datafiles\SPF433\SPF433ADW_DATATEMP.DBF'
Database Altered

Now when i am trying to run Alter Database open I get ORA-01113: file 5 needs media recovery error

Please guide

Thanks in Advance

Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

You need to provide a lot more information, such as the complete sequence of events. For example, how did you move the files? 'was the database open at the time?

But one thing you can certainly try is
alter database datafile 5 offline;
alter database open;
recover datafile 5;
alter database datafile 5 online;
You have nothing to lose, and it might work.

I appreciate your quick response. I am a novice when it comes to Oracle real admin stuff and i did following.
I am sure database was open.
I ran your command
alter database datafile 5 offline; but got following error
ORA-01145: offline immediate disallowed unless media recovery enabled

If you are in NOARCHIVELOG mode then directly try "recover" command.

Post
select d.status, v.status, v.enabled
from v$datafile v, dba_data_files d
where d.file_id = v.file#
  and v.file# = 5
/

I have tried many things to get alter database open to work but all in vain.

Thanks you so much for your reply.

1/ Are you in ARCHIVELOG or NOARCHIVELOG mode?
2/ Post the result of the command I requested
3/ What is the last archive you have?
4/ What is the last one generated (see v$loghist)?

Regards
Michel

Have you the requested archived log?
Post the result of "select status from v$datafile where file#=5;"

Have you archived log sequence 104?
You are now at sequence 107 (last archived is 106).
Have you these archived logs 104 to 106?

By the way, file status can't be active, it OFFLINE, ONLINE or RECOVER.
Also add "ENABLED" column to the query and copy and paste its execution like:
SQL> select status, enabled from v$datafile where file#=5;

STATUS  ENABLED
------- ----------
ONLINE  READ WRITE

Michel

You are in noarchivelog mode: in this mode, there is no possibility of recovery, and backups (or file copies) can be made only when the databased is closed. Therefore you have no possibility of recovery. Your only option is a complete restore of the database from your last backup.
If you can't do this, there is one other possibility, that will lose all the data in the damaged files:
alter database datafile 5 offline drop;
alter database open;

This is irreversible, so think carefully first.
