The problem you are encountering is that when you lost the undo datafile, it still contained one or more transactions that needed to be rolled back to bring the database into a consistent state. The undo is no longer available since the datafile is not there and hence you still (1 month later) have a logical inconsistency in your data.

 

It is possible to find out which transaction(s) are being rolled back by setting event 10015 in the (s)pfile and re-starting the database. This will produce a trace file which contains a transaction ID and and object # which you can then query from dba_objects (object_id) to determine the affected object.

 

At this stage you may have to export/drop/import the affected table to clear the requirement to apply the undo.

 

All of this should be done under the supervision of Oracle support as I would not like to be responsible for getting you into trouble J.

 

Cheers

Subject: Drop UNDO tablespace

 

Env: Oracle 9.2.0.6, 3 Node RAC, Sun OS 2.9

We want to drop this undo tablespace UNDOTBS1 which is not part on any instance.
But when we try to drop the tablespace it is throwing "ORA-01548:
active rollback segment '_SYSSMU1$' found, terminate dropping
tablespace". Is there a way to overcome this?

The datafile for UNDOTBS1 segments got corrupted and in "NEEDS
RECOVERY" state for more than a month. We created new undo tablespace
(UNDOTBS1_NEW) that time and UNDOTBS1 tablespace not required any
more.
