Error recovering a database with a read-only tablespace
Date: Wed, 16 Apr 2008 16:54:27 +0100
I'm running into a problem trying to recover a 22.214.171.124 test database with a read only tablespace ASSETS_21 from an RMAN backup.
The restore runs fine and appears to restore the ASSETS_21.dbf datafile (number 13 for the superstitious amongst you):
RMAN> restore database check readonly force;
restoring datafile 00013 to /data/oradata/ESDCWTST/ASSETS_21.dbf
Finished restore at 16-APR-08
But when I do the recovery, I get the following error:
RMAN> recover database check readonly;
could not read file header for datafile 13 error reason 9
RMAN-03002: failure of recover command at 04/16/2008 16:02:16 RMAN-06094: datafile 1 must be restored
And when I try it from sqlplus I get:
SQL> recover database until cancel using backup controlfile;
ORA-00283: recovery session canceled due to errors ORA-01110: data file 13: '/data/oradata/ESDCWTST/ASSETS_21.dbf' ORA-01122: database file 13 failed verification check ORA-01110: data file 13: '/data/oradata/ESDCWTST/ASSETS_21.dbf' ORA-01206: file is not part of this database - wrong database id
Has anybody come across this before, or know what to do? I'm probably going to end up cloning a new copy from the live database, but it would be nice to know what the problem was.
