Here are the steps from Oracle support that finally made traditional 'export' (not export datapump) work with 'SYSAUX' tablespace offline. Note: need to restart the database in 'upgrade' mode.
SQL> shutdown immediate;
SQL> startup upgrade
SQL> _at_?/rdbms/admin/catnoqm.sql
SQL> shutdown immediate;
SQL> startup

Hi Flora,

Just to confirm, you do not have the redo necessary to recover the sysaux datafile?

Hi, community,
I need to salvage some data after SYSAUX tablespace was offline due to disk controller problem. Unfortunately RMAN backup is not good, can backup all datafile except the 'sysaux' datafile. The database is still up and running and I need to export data out to migrate to a new database server. But export or export datapump threw error like below: exporting private type synonyms
. exporting object type definitions for user SCOTT About to export SCOTT's objects ...
. exporting database links
. exporting sequence numbers
. exporting cluster definitions

EXP-00056: ORACLE error 4063 encountered
ORA-04063: view "SYS.KU$_XMLSCHEMA_VIEW" has errors
EXP-00000: Export terminated unsuccessfully Oracle support suggested deinstall XDB component, but the deinstall by running script '_at_?/rdbms/admin/catnoqm.sql' failed.
Complaining 'sysaux' is offline.
Any suggestions and options will be greatly appreciated!
