Oracle Database Errors or Warnings from Error ORA-00241 to ORA-00250
ORA-00241: operation disallowed: control file inconsistent with data dictionary
Cause: The control file was either recently created via CREATE CONTROLFILE or an incomplete recovery has been done. Thus, the datafiles in the control file and the ones in the data dictionary may not match.
Action: Open the database, then retry the operation.
ORA-00242: maximum allowed filename records used up in control file
Cause: Failed to create a new filename record entry in the control file because the maximum allowed filename records have been allocated and are in use.
Action: Free up controlfile filename section entries by dropping unwanted tablespaces/datafiles/redofiles.
ORA-00243: failed to expand control file filename section by string records
Cause: Failed to expand control file filename section. See alert log for more details.
Action: Retry the operation after increasing disk space for controlfile expansion.
ORA-00244: concurrent control file backup operation in progress
Cause: Failed to create a control file backup because concurrent control file backup operation was in progress.
Action: Retry backup creation later.
ORA-00245: control file backup failed; target is likely on a local file system
Cause: Failed to create a control file backup because some process signaled an error during backup creation. This is likely caused by the backup target being on a local file system so it could not be accessed by other instances. It can also be caused by other I/O errors to the backup target. Any process of any instance that starts a read/write control file transaction must have access to the backup control file during backup creation.
Action: Check alert files of all instances for further information.
ORA-00246: control file backup failed; error accessing backup target
Cause: An attempt to create a control file backup failed because some process signaled an I/O error when accessing the backup target.
Action: Check alert and trace files for further information.
ORA-00250: archiver not started
Cause: An attempt was made to stop automatic archiving, but the archiver process was not running.
Action: No action required.
