RE: Corrupt unused blocks in sysaux

Sysaux is largely a saint cow.
Well, I managed to move objects arround it (into other datafiles.) Then you can drop or resize the corrupt datafiles) but strictly speeking this is not supported to my best knowledge.
At least I got a bunch of alert log messages from various processes like all kinds of advisors but for test db - who cares ? On the other hand - why not stop awr, advisors, etc while doing this ? I'd go for it in test env and if dbverify and health check are happy after that then why not to go into production? The world is not perfect after all.

You tried this, didn't you: "How to Format Corrupted Block Not Part of Any Segment [ID 336133.1]"
I tried this for the following and it worked:
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kdddgb5], , , , , , , 
Current SQL statement for this session:
UPDATE .... dbverify:..

Can you move the objects from sysaux to a new tablespace, drop the sysaux tablespace (have to be sysdba I upgrade mode I believe), and rename the new one to sysaux? I'd obviously test this process in another non production environment first.

Subject: Corrupt unused blocks in sysaux
Someone just brought me to a system that recently had an outage. A disk had
gone bad and been replaced (supposedly RAID1). The database was restarted
and appears to be working normally; however, there are some corrupt blocks.
I first saw this in the alert log and then verified with dbv. So, now I
corrupt blocks in SYSAUX that are not used by an object. Unfortunately there are no RMAN backups as it appears they use streams to replicate to another database.
I tried creating an object in the sysaux tables so I could allocate extents to encompass the blocks and then insert rows hoping to reformat them; however, when I tried to allocate over the blocks I get a corruption message. I'm thinking these are corrupt on disk.
I re-found dbms_repair but the options for marking blocks corrupt seem to
if the blocks are in an object, not free.
Any ideas on what else I can do? I'd really like to just mark off the
and be done with it. (This project is hopefully obsolete later this year).
