Dear Experts,

I have disk failure on the server that hosts some applications in Oracle databases. After the disk volume (RAID-1) has been recovered and rebuilt, I get some errors logging on

"Error Code: -1 Row: 0 - Database transaction information not available | Call SetTrans or SetTransObject function".

"Entry for ENABLE_MAIL_ID_ADMIN not found in table STS",

"Entry for NOTIFY_EMAIL_ID_ADMIN not found in table STS".

"ORA-12528: TNS:listener: all appropriate instances are blocking new connections."

Please advise on how fix this.  Thanks so much!

What are those errors from?

Based on the last one which is an actual Oracle error, check the database alert log for additional messages from the database.

@lightwv - thanks for the quick response.  I am not too familiar with Oracle, so please bear with me here.  The errors came from an application called MainSaver which uses Oracle as its database.  Where can I find the database alert log please?

It is pointed to by the database spfile parameter DIAGNOSTIC_DEST:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e25513/initparams078.htm#REFRN10280

 The structure of the directory specified by DIAGNOSTIC_DEST is as follows:
<diagnostic_dest>/diag/rdbms/<dbname>/<instname>



My guess is it is using the default location.


Where you have Oracle installed, look for a diag folder.

Then continue drilling down.  Eventually you will see a trace folder.  The alert log is in there.

I should add it should have the name alert_<SID>.log where <SID> is the database name.

For future reference, there is also an alert folder that has the same information but it is in XML format for use by Enterprise Manager or dbConsole.

The one in the trace folder is easier to read for humans.

Looks like your database isn't starting up.  To look in the alert log, you don't need to connect to Oracle.  The alert log should tell you why the database isn't starting.
