I have a database - oracle 8i setup on a system. Somehow the control files of the database has been corrupted.
When I tried to connect the database, I got the error - "ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress"
When I checked oradim.log, I found that there is inconsistency with the control files -
ORA-00214: controlfile 'E:\ORACLE\ORADATA\TEST\CONTROL01.CTL' version 17230 inconsistent with file 'D:\ORACLE\ORADATA\TEST\CONTROL02.CTL' version 17216
How can I recover those control files.
I tried -
"Recover database until cancel " - I got error that database is not mounted. !! How can I mount the datbase if the Control files are corrupted?????
