Good morning everyone,

We have a database that did backups with the dump files (.dmp) but when it goes to read the dumps, its saying that it can't read the header and needs to be recovered.

We don't have an Oracle support contract so we are trying to find out a way to recover these dump files or some way we can gain access to these files and have them in working order again.

Please feel free to email me or shoot me a private message. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

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

First, please note that requesting help IMMEDIATELY tends to be counter-productive on a public forum: the various volunteers may view it as being a bit aggressive. After all, it is your problem, not ours.

Second, you need to give more information. At the moment we have no idea of what you are trying to do, or what the error is. Use copy/paste to to show exactly what happens when you do whatever it is that you are doing, and enclose this in code tags, as an example:
c:\users\john\home>sqlplus / as sysdba

Perhaps the files are datapump dump files or exp-dump files instead of rman-backups.
Would also help how the backups were taken (commands?)

What do you do with DMP files? Did you, perhaps, FTP them "there" and "back" again? If so, did you do it in BINARY mode? If not, you should have.
