Oracle Database Errors or Warnings from Error ORA-19601 to ORA-19610

Cause: This message identifies the output file for a failed copy operation. The fields are as described in message 19600. When creating a new datafile copy, its control file record number may not have been determined when the message is printed. In that case, the record number shown is zero.
Action: See other error message.
ORA-19602: cannot backup or copy active file in NOARCHIVELOG mode
Cause: You tried to copy or backup a file that was not closed cleanly, and the database was in NOARCHIVELOG mode. This is not allowed because when restored, the file will require redo application before it is usable, and redo is not currently being saved beyond the contents of the online redo logs.
Action: Take the tablespace offline clean or close the database and retry the copy or backup.
ORA-19603: cannot backup or copy active file with KEEP .. UNRECOVERABLE option
Cause: The user tried to copy or backup a file that was not closed cleanly, with KEEP .. UNRECOVERABLE option. This is not allowed because when restored, the file will require redo application before it is usable, and redo will not be saved because of KEEP .. UNRECOVERABLE option.
Action: Take the tablespace offline cleanly, or close the database and retry the copy or backup.
ORA-19604: conversation file naming phase is over
Cause: A call was made to specify a file to be backed up or restored after the first backup piece has been processed.
Action: You cannot specify more files to be processed during a backup or restore conversation after the first backup piece has been processed. If more files must be specified, you must begin a new conversation.

Cause: The input file name was not specified for a control file copy operation.
Action: Specify an input file name and retry the operation.
ORA-19606: Cannot copy or restore to snapshot control file
Cause: A control file copy or restore operation specified the name of the snapshot control file as the output file. It is not permitted to overwrite the snapshot control file in this manner. Other methods are available to create the snapshot control file.
Action: Specify a different file name and retry the operation. If this is a restore, then the restore conversation remains active and more files may be specified.
ORA-19607: string is an active control file
Cause: A control file copy, restore, or backup specified the name of a control file named in the INIT.ORA file as the input or output file.
Action: Specify a different file name and retry the operation. If this is a backup or restore conversation, then the conversation remains active and more files may be specified.
ORA-19608: string is not a backup piece
Cause: The specified file is not a backup piece produced by the DBMS_BACKUP_RESTORE package. Either the first block of the backup piece is corrupt or this file is not a backup piece.
Action: Specify a different file name and retry the operation.
ORA-19609: string is from different backup set: stamp string count string
Cause: The specified file is not from the backup set which is currently being processed. It is part of a different backup set. The identification of the set containing this piece is shown.
Action: Specify the correct backup piece and retry the operation.
ORA-19610: directory block string is corrupt
Cause: The indicated directory block failed checksum validation. This backup piece is unusable.
Action: Supply another copy of the same backup piece, or terminate the restore conversation.
