ORA-09817:      Write to audit file failed.
Cause:      ORACLE was unable to write an entry to the file used as the audit trail.
Action:      Check the UNIX error number for a possible operating system error. If there is no error, contact Oracle Support Services.

Check if the filesystem is not full where the audit file is located. "df -k", if you are running Oracle on UX like platform.

The above suggestions are good.
Check also if 'oracle' user has write privilege over the subdirectory where this file resides.
