Action: Set DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST to an appropriate location and retry.
ORA-38787: Creating the first guaranteed restore point requires mount mode when flashback database is off.
Cause: While flashback database is not on, an attempt was made to create the first guaranteed restore point while the database is open.
Action: Mount the database and retry.
ORA-38788: More standby database recovery is needed
Cause: An attempt was made to create a restore point or a guaranteed while a physical standby database is not cleanly checkpointed.
Action: Perform more standby database recovery via managed standby database recovery. Cancel managed recovery and retry the command.
ORA-38789: File name is too long.
Cause: The file name provided in the command was longer than the maximum allowed.
Action: Use a shorter file name.
ORA-38790: BEFORE must be specified with RESETLOGS
Cause: The FLASHBACK DATABASE command included the RESETLOGS parameter but not the BEFORE parameter.
Action: Retry the command with TO BEFORE RESETLOGS.
ORA-38791: flashback did not start because file string was not in a valid incarnation
Cause: Flashback could not be started because a file was checkpointed or fuzzy at a point where the file can neither be restored nor recovered to our restore target. In order for a file to be brought to the restore target, the file has to be in one of the incarnations along the ancestral path from the current incarnation to the restore incarnation.
Action: Manually restore or recover the file to a point where it is in one of the incarnations along the ancestral path from the current incarnation to the restore incarnation.
ORA-38792: encountered unknown flashback record from release string
Cause: A Flashback Database logfile contains a record written by a future Oracle release and is unknown by this release.
Action: The given release of Oracle must be installed in order to use these flashback database log files.
ORA-38793: cannot FLASHBACK the database to a future SCN/time
Cause: The Flashback Database target SCN/timestamp is greater than the current database SCN/timestamp and the database incarnation is not the last opened incarnation.
Action: If the target SCN/timestamp is in the current incarnation or a child incarnation whose branch point is after the current database SCN then RECOVER DATABASE to the target SCN/time. If the target SCN/timestamp is in a child incarnation whose branch point is prior to the current database SCN then FLASHBACK DATABASE to before the branch point. Next use RMAN to reset the database to the child incarnation. Finally, RECOVER DATABASE to the target SCN/time.
ORA-38794: Flashback target time not in current incarnation
Cause: The Flashback Database target timestamp is not in the database’s current incarnation or any of its ancestors.
Action: Use a different target timestamp or use RMAN to reset the database to the appropriate incarnation.
