RE: Ugly error in alert log

Never seen it. If you are not doing manual archiving, and made in error while doing that, I guess there is a corruption. If this was for only one log, I would do a backup as soon as possible, as the previous backup may very well not be usefull. Backup also control file to trace to see what it is going to tell about the redo log files. If those errors keep repeating the corruption is probably either in the control file or in the redo log files. If it is in the redo log file, they are somewhere easier to fix. Make sure that corruption is not in both control and redo, as the recovery in that case is a bit tricky.
