Oracle Database Errors or Warnings from Error ORA-01211 to ORA-01220
ORA-01211: Oracle7 data file is not from migration to Oracle8
Cause: The file is not a copy of the file LAST used under Oracle7. This datafile is either a backup taken from before the migration, or the database was opened by Oracle7 after the migration utility was run. When converting a database from Oracle7 to Oracle8, the migration program MUST be the LAST utility to access the database under Oracle7. Only the datafiles that were current when the migration was done may be accessed by Oracle8.
Action: Have operating system make correct data file available to database, or repeat the Oracle7 to Oracle8 migration. Make sure that database is NOT opened after migration utility is run.
ORA-01212: MAXLOGMEMBERS may not exceed string
Cause: MAXLOGMEMBERS specified on the command line too large.
Action: Resubmit the command with a smaller MAXLOGMEMBERS
ORA-01213: MAXINSTANCES may not exceed string
Cause: MAXINSTANCES specified on the command line too large.
Action: Resubmit the command with a smaller MAXINSTANCES
ORA-01214: MAXLOGHISTORY may not exceed string
Cause: MAXLOGHISTORY specified on the command line too large.
Action: Resubmit the command with a smaller MAXLOGHISTORY
ORA-01215: enabled thread string is missing after CREATE CONTROLFILE
Cause: A CREATE CONTROLFILE statement was given which did not list all the enabled threads for the database.
Action: Reissue the CREATE CONTROLFILE statement, including all enabled threads.
ORA-01216: thread string is expected to be disabled after CREATE CONTROLFILE
Cause: A thread that was given during CREATE CONTROLFILE is enabled, but the datafiles indicate that it should be disabled. This is probably because the logs supplied to the CREATE CONTROLFILE are old (from before the disabling of the thread).
Action: This thread is not required to run the database. The CREATE CONTROLFILE statement can be reissued without the problem thread, and, if desired, the thread can be recreated after the database is open.
ORA-01217: logfile member belongs to a different logfile group
Cause: A member of a multiple-member logfile group specified in a CREATE CONTROLFILE is not part of the same group as previous members.
Action: Group together the correct members for the CREATE CONTROLFILE command.
ORA-01218: logfile member is not from the same point-in-time
Cause: A member of a multiple-member logfile group is from a different point in time. One of the members specified may be an older (backup) copy of the log.
Action: Find the correct version of the log, or leave it out of the CREATE CONTROLFILE command.
ORA-01219: database not open: queries allowed on fixed tables/views only
Cause: A query was issued against an object not recognized as a fixed table or fixed view before the database has been opened.
Action: Re-phrase the query to include only fixed objects, or open the database.
ORA-01220: file based sort illegal before database is open
Cause: A query issued against a fixed table or view required a temporary segment for sorting before the database was open. Only in-memory sorts are supported before the database is open.
Action: Re-phrase the query to avoid a large sort, increase the values of the SORT_AREA_SIZE and/or SORT_AREA_RETAINED_SIZE initialization parameters to enable the sort to be done in memory.
