Oracle Database Errors or Warnings from Error ORA-19882 to ORA-19907
ORA-19882: datafile string checkpoint string is ahead of space bitmap datafile string checkpoint string
Cause: When checkpointing the datafile containing the space bitmaps for the datafile being backed up in order to use Unused Block Optimization, the checkpoint of the datafile containing the space bitmaps did not advance.
Action: Examine the trace and alert files for possible causes. Fix underlying problem to use Unused Block Optimization for datafile’s backup.
ORA-19883: Unused Block Optimization stopped for datafile string
Cause: Accompanying errors detail the problem that prevented Unused Block Optimization from being used.
Action: See accompanying errors for appropiate action.
ORA-19900: RESETLOGS must be specified after recovery to new incarnation
Cause: Recovery was done to an incarnation after changing the destination incarnation using RMAN’s RESET DATABASE command.
Action: Open the database with the RESETLOGS option.
ORA-19901: database needs more recovery to create new incarnation
Cause: Recovery was done to an incarnation after changing the destination incarnation using RMAN’s RESET DATABASE command, but one or more of the recovered datafiles still belongs to the parent incarnation. This usually happens when recovery is ended before any logs from the desired incarnation have been applied.
Action: Continue recovery.
ORA-19902: incarnation key string not found
Cause: The specified incarnation was not found in the control file.
Action: Resubmit request with known incarnation key. To see which incarnations are available for this target database, query V$DATABASE_INCARNATION or use RMAN’s LIST INCARNATION command.
ORA-19903: test recovery not allowed when recovering to new incarnation
Cause: Either a new incarnation was set using RMAN’s RESET DATABASE command for a control file that was CURRENT, or the control file is from a prior incarnation. As recovery to a new incarnation requires changing the control file, test recovery is not allowed.
Action: Perform actual recovery or RESET DATABASE to incarnation that was last opened using the control file to do test recovery.
ORA-19904: test recovery not allowed for datafile string
Cause: The specified datafile has been restored from a backup that was taken before the last RESETLOGS. Recovering this datafile will require a file header update that is incompatible with test recovery.
Action: Perform actual recovery.
ORA-19905: log_archive_format must contain %s, %t and %r
Cause: log_archive_format is missing a mandatory format element. Starting with Oracle 10i, archived log file names must contain each of the elements %s(sequence), %t(thread), and %r(RESETLOGS ID) to ensure that all archived log file names are unique.
Action: Add the missing format elements to log_archive_format.
ORA-19906: recovery target incarnation changed during recovery
Cause: While a media recovery was active, a new incarnation was detected by the server due to inspection or cataloging of archived logs or backup files.
Action: If you want recovery to use the new incarnation, restart recovery. This is the most common action on a standby database when RESETLOGS is done in primary. If you do not want recovery to use the new incarnation, change the recovery destination using RMAN’s RESET DATABASE TO INCARNATION <incarnation#> command. To see which incarnations are available for this target database, query V$DATABASE_INCARNATION or use RMAN’s LIST INCARNATION command.
ORA-19907: recovery time or SCN does not belong to recovered incarnation
Cause: A point-in-time recovery to an SCN or time stamp prior to the last RESETLOGS was requested.
Action: Either change the specified recovery time/SCN, or change the recovery destination using RMAN’s RESET DATABASE command.
