Cause: The value specified cannot be supported by this release of the software.
Action: Choose an appropriate value, or remove the parameter value to use the default value.
ORA-00402: database changes by release string cannot be used by release string
Cause: Changes have been made to the database that require a newer software release or that violate the compatibility parameters.
Action: Use a version of the software that can understand the changes or relax the compatibility requirements in the init file.
ORA-00403: string (string) is not the same as other instances (string)
Cause: Another instance has set the compatible or compatible no recovery parameters differently than this instance.
Action: Change the parameters of the current instance to match other instances already running.

Cause: The file used for converting the database from V7 to V8 could not be found.

Cause: Another instance executing software at a different point release already has the database mounted.

Cause: Reporting the parameter that resulted in the compatibility error.
Action: Shutdown and startup with a higher compatibility setting.
ORA-00409: COMPATIBLE needs to be string or higher to use AUTO SEGMENT SPACE MANAGEMENT
Cause: This is due to migrating from an older release of Oracle with tablespaces created using AUTO SEGMENT SPACE MANAGEMENT. To open the database, the COMPATIBLE parameter needs to be set to the specified value.
