Oracle Database Errors or Warnings from Error ORA-19511 to ORA-19551


ORA-19511: Error received from media manager layer, error text: string
Cause: An error occurred in the media management software which is linked with the Oracle server to perform backup and restore in cooperation with Recovery Manager.
Action: If the text of message 19511 does not provide enough information to resolve the problem, then you should contact the vendor of the media management software.
ORA-19512: file search failed
Cause: Recovery manager or Oracle Server attempted to discover files that matched the specified pattern but failed.
Action: Check errors on the error stack for an explanation why the search for files could not be successfully executed.
ORA-19513: failed to identify sequential file
Cause: Unable to identify the sequential file.
Action: Check additional messages, and check if the file exists on media.

ORA-19525: tempfile for the clone database must be renamed

Action: Rename the tempfiles manually or automatically by using the DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT initialization parameter.
ORA-19526: only one location allowed for parameter string
Cause: A list of default locations was provided in an Oracle-managed files parameter.
Action: Edit the parameter to include a single location.
ORA-19527: physical standby redo log must be renamed
Cause: The CLEAR LOGFILE command was used at a physical standby database. This command cannot be used at a physical standby database unless the LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT initialization parameter is set. This is required to avoid overwriting the primary database’s log files.
Action: Set the LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT initialization parameter.

ORA-19528: redo logs being cleared may need access to files
Cause: The redo logs are being cleared. This procedure may need the files this operation is being applied to.

Cause: An attempt was made to convert a database file name to an Oracle Managed Files file name using DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT or LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT initialization parameter. This was not a valid operation.
Action: Retry the operation with a pattern template instead of a full Oracle Managed Files file name.
ORA-19550: cannot use backup/restore functions while using dispatcher
Cause: Attempted to use backup/restore functions while connected to the dispatcher in a shared server. This is not allowed because the device that is used for backup and restore must remain allocated to a single process.
Action: Connect directly to the instance then re-execute the backup or restore function.
ORA-19551: device is busy, device type: string, device name: string
Cause: The indicated device could not be allocated because it is allocated to another session, or no device was named, or all devices of the requested type are busy.
