Common with netapp, you can actually try copying the file to a new file. Delete that file, and then rename the copy back. I think that will work, but it can be a pain.

Subject: all time worst question I have been ever asked as a DBA
So, I am getting this error on one of our virtual Linux servers:
ORA-00210: cannot open the specified control file ORA-00202: control file: '/u01/app/oracle/datafiles/devdb/control01.ctl' ORA-27086: unable to lock file - already in use
Its probably due to a stale NFS lock. The question from my sys admin: -rw-r----- 1 oracle oinstall 10076160 Jul 22 13:33 control01.ctl can that file just be removed
Ok, I am a little frustrated with him...
