Re: RMAN Restore problems

Yu Fish


  It is a strange problem,did you add new objects which db_block_size is different from the old objects?

Hi all,
I haven't done a restore/recovery in a looong time.  So long in fact, that we were not using RMAN the last time I did.  Anyway, I am going through a test recovery and restoring the controlfile and spfile worked, but after restoring the spfile, I am unable to mount the database.  I get the following error:
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of alter db command at 02/22/2006 15:43:28
ORA-00209: control file blocksize mismatch, check alert log for more info
The alert log says this:
alter database mount
Wed Feb 22 15:43:25 2006
ORA-00218: block size 8192 of controlfile does not match DB_BLOCK_SIZE (4096)
ORA-00202: controlfile: '?/dbs/cntrl@.dbf'
Wed Feb 22 15:43:28 2006
ORA-209 signalled during: alter database mount...
however, when I look in the spfile, I see:
Am I missing something?
This is using Oracle on AIX 5.2.
