Coskan’s Approach to Oracle

Crash recovery cannot be done automatically – [kcratr1_lastbwr]

Filed under: Bugs — coskan @ 2:30 pm

I hit the error below during startup of my RAC installation running on Solaris X86-64 on VMWare

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kcratr1_lastbwr], [], [], [], [],[], [], []

Basically none of the instances start-up with srvctl command and log this error to alert log.

Tried to run manual startup of instances but no chance same error.

Quick search on MOS (yes it was working 🙂 ) take me to the note 393984.1 (no bug number)

It says this is a bug on Enterprise Edition – Version: to

Solution is manual recovery.

SQL> startup;
        ORACLE instance started.

Total System Global Area  369098752 bytes

Database altered.

    Thanks, good one to keep in the bookmarks.

  2. Simple makes me feel good. I wish some of the other things(like old friend metalink) can stay simple for dba 1.0 like me 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by
