Hello,

I did a fresh import of my database.
I put my user_data and alcieind tablespaces offline and renamed 2 user datafiles and renamed and moved a 3rd datafile as follows:
-----
1) alter tablespace user_data offline normal;
2) alter tablespace user_data rename datafile '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/U01APP01ORACLELNORADATAORACLELNUSR1ORCL.ORA' to '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/USR1ORCL.ORA';
3) alter tablespace user_data rename datafile '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/U01APP01ORACLELNORADATAORACLELNUSR2ORCL.ORA' to '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/USR2ORCL.ORA';
-----
------
Now, I want to rename a 3rd datafile and changes its location, I already made a copy at the OS level. I type the following command:
-----
4) alter database rename datafile '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/DISK1ORADATAALCIND01.ORA' to '/DISK1/ORADATA/ALCIND01.ORA';

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-02231: missing or invalid option to ALTER DATABASE
-----
I also try to bring my 2 renamed datafiles online as follows:
5) alter database recover datafile '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/USR1ORCL.ORA';
6) alter database recover datafile '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/USR2ORCL.ORA';

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00283: recovery session canceled due to errors
ORA-01110: data file 11: '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/USR1ORCL.ORA'
ORA-01122: database file 11 failed verification check
ORA-01110: data file 11: '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/USR1ORCL.ORA'
ORA-01251: Unknown File Header Version read for file number 11

=====
1) How can I get my database back online normally ?

I tried commands such as;

1) alter database recover datafile '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/USR1ORCL.ORA';
2) alter database recover datafile '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/USR2ORCL.ORA';
3) alter database recover datafile '/DISK1/ORADATA/ALCIND01.ORA'
                                                                                                       
4) alter database datafile '/DISK1/ORADATA/ALCIND01.ORA' online;

but get error messages....

What should I do ?

the correct command should be:


alter database rename file '/u01/app01/oracleln/product/9.2.0.4/dbs/DISK1ORADATAALCIND01.ORA' to '/DISK1/ORADATA/ALCIND01.ORA';

to bring the data files back online:

you DON'T need to recover them...you can bring them back online just as the way you offline them:

alter tablespace user_data online;

You have corrupted the files by doing RECOVERY command on those files.

After import, you should do this to rename files:

1. copy the files to the desired disks.

2. STARTUP MOUNT the database instead of open database.


3. rename the files using "ALTER DATABASE RENAME FILE " command instead of offline tablespace first....

Hello,

Given the situation now,
Should I delete the existing datafiles at the OS level ? + restart a new import ?

Hello,

I tried to rename the datafiles using Alter database rename file......, before coping the Datafiles at the OS level after doing a successfull import. I tried to shutdown the DB and then copy my OS datafiles + startup again. I get the following messages:

Connected to an idle instance.
SQL> startup
ORA-01081: cannot start already-running ORACLE - shut it down first
SQL> shutdown
ORA-24324: service handle not initialized
ORA-24323: value not allowed
ORA-01090: shutdown in progress - connection is not permitted

ok, something fell through the crack during the process...

force the database down by shutdown the machine.

1. create the empty database.
2. do the import fresh.
3. copy the database data files to the desired locations.
4. STARTUP MOUNT the database , NOT open database;
5. rename the data files.
5. alter database open;



I don't see how possibly this can go wrong...

Hello,

When I first invoke sqlplus, I type STARTUP, I guess I should type STARTUP MOUNT.
Is that it ?
