ORA-00205: error in identifying control file..after installing ASM

Hi
I haveoracle database 10g running on a redhat4 mechine.
i have installed ASM and migrate my database to ASM.
I haven't any problem and everything was fine till i reboot the mechine for the first time after
installing ASM.
I got the ORA-00205: error in identifying control file, check alert log for more info
error when database was restarting
any one can help me out of this problem
many many thanks in advance

eventually I figured out what the problem is.
The problem is about my dbora file used to start my database.
this is the whole story!!!
I have a oracle 10gR2 installed on Redhat linux AS 4.
I have configured my database to work on ASM.All the configuration have set properly
and every thing is fine except the Automatic starting the database in time
the mechine is restarted.
when i restart the mechine with nothing in dbora(used to automatically start the database)
and start everything after logging into oracle user(listener ,database,Enterprise manager)
no problem(i can see my ASM instance database instance throught Enterprise managaer).
but when i use dbora to do that i get this error appear in enterprise manager
ORA-12528: TNS:listener: all appropriate instances are blocking new connections (DBD ERROR: OCIServerAttach)
this is the content of dbora:
s script is intended to allow the automated
# startup and shutdown of an oracle database server.
# Author: Sean O'Donnell <[email protected]>
# the user that oracle runs as (default: oracle)
ORACLE=oracle
# database instance id
ORACLE_SID=orcl
# ORACLE_HOME (file system) path
ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1
PATH=${PATH}:$ORACLE_HOME/bin
export ORACLE_SID ORACLE_HOME PATH
case $1 in
'start')
su - $ORACLE -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/lsnrctl start"
su - $ORACLE -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbstart"
su - $ORACLE -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/emctl start dbconsole"
'stop')
su - $ORACLE -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/emctl stop dbconsole"
su - $ORACLE -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbshut"
su - $ORACLE -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/lsnrctl stop"
echo "usage: $0 {start|stop}"
esac
exit
What do u think could be the reason?!!!!
thank you in advance

    It can e.g. be that while copying the file permissions have been changed, making the files not readable for the oracle user

    Why it is giving error for Password file authentication?
    Thanks,

  • ORA-00205: error in identifying control file

    Hi DBAs,
    I am using Oracle 11g R2, My db is up and running, I thought to Multiplexing the controlfile in another location. My DB is up with help of sp file.
    While it was up, I have given a comment like this, without specifying the filename.ctl , I wrongly mentioned the Path alone, now it has been updated in spfile.
    SQL> alter system set control_files='E:\APP\ADMINISTRATOR\ORADATA\BASKAR\CONTROLFILE\' scope=spfile;
    System altered.
    Then, When i was restarting my db its throwing an error, control file is missing.
    Then I thought to run my db with pfile, then i tried to chang the controlfile parameter in SPFILE, it showing as like below one,
    SQL> alter system set control_files='E:\app\Administrator\oradata\BASKAR\O2_MF_7CSK1379_.CTL' scope=spfile;
    alter system set control_files='E:\app\Administrator\oradata\BASKAR\O2_MF_7CSK1379_.CTL' scope=spfile
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-32001: write to SPFILE requested but no SPFILE specified at startup
    Any one can let me know? how do i change my controlfile parameter in spfile.
    How do i start my db with SPFILE.

    Then I thought to run my db with pfile, then i tried to chang the controlfile parameter in SPFILE, it showing as like below one,
    SQL> alter system set control_files='E:\app\Administrator\oradata\BASKAR\O2_MF_7CSK1379_.CTL' scope=spfile;
    alter system set control_files='E:\app\Administrator\oradata\BASKAR\O2_MF_7CSK1379_.CTL' scope=spfile
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-32001: write to SPFILE requested but no SPFILE specified at startupYour database is currently running with the pfile. Check the value of control_files now
    show parameter control_files
    Make necessary changes in you pfile, create an spfile from your pfile and later start the database with the newly created spfile

  • Error in identifying control file

    I have successfully moved or cloned a database, but having problem with the controfile creation.
    Each time I run the create control file script and start the database, I get "ORA-00205: error in identifying control file".
    When I do "sho parameter", it tells me that contral file is ora02/oracle/oradata, but no controlfile in that folder.
    My question is when I run the following script, where is the control file saved?
    CREATE CONTROLFILE SET DATABASE "MDB" RESETLOGS
    MAXLOGFILES 20
    MAXLOGMEMBERS 4
    MAXDATAFILES 22
    MAXINSTANCES 2
    MAXLOGHISTORY 292
    DATAFILE
    CREATE CONTROLFILE SET DATABASE "MDB" RESETLOGS
    MAXLOGFILES 20
    MAXLOGMEMBERS 4
    MAXDATAFILES 22
    MAXINSTANCES 2
    MAXLOGHISTORY 292
    LOGFILE

    Problem resolved!
    I followed the instruction in How to Recreate a Controlfile [ID 735106.1].
    The part of the document I used is stated below as I just had to clean up my controlfile creation script:
    It is important to delete everything above the "CREATE CONTROLFILE" and everything after the CHARACTER SET. Ensure you leave the semi colon. ";".In the above example we are choosing the NORESETLOGS option and running the database in archivelog mode. After successfully saving the script you are now able to recreate the controlfile. When shutting down the database ensure that you shutdown with the immediate option.

  • Error in identifying control file during 11g Upgrade..

    Hi All,
    I am trying to upgrade our database to 11g and I am getting the following error when I try to start the database with the STARTUP UPGRADE command. I am doing a manual upgrade and following the Upgrade guide:

    What's weird is that I checked and the ASM instance is up and running. I checked all the environment variables ( set PATH and ORACLE_HOME to new 11g home) and I also set the oratab entry to point to the new Oracle Home as the documentation says. Below are my entries from the .bash_profile file and the oratab file.

    Thank you all.

    Hm ... please have a look into ML-Note:337737.1 (I'm just mentioning the combinations with an 11g database) - I noticed that you don't have a RAC installation but nevertheless you'll have CSS running for your ASM instance.
    CRS........ASM............DB......Certified
    11.1_____11.1_____11.1_____Y
    11.1.____10.2______11.1_____Y
    11.1_____10.1.0.3__11.1_____Y
    So upgrading the ASM instance first should solve this issue. Upgrading ASM means: you'll shutdown your database running in ASM and upgrade the ASM instance with the DBUA. It'll take just a few minutes because there's no data dictionary in ASM.
    Kind regards
    Mike

  • ORA-00205: error in identifying controlfile, check alert log for more info

    Hello All,
    I am performing my first Collab Suite install in quite some time and I have successfully installed Collaboration Suite on Linux Red Hat AS 4. I first performed an infrastructure installation for the Collab Suite database which completed with no errors, however, it appears that no control files were created in my $ORACLE_HOME/dbs directory during installation. I am also unable to specify their exact location in the initSID.ora file as I am unable to find them in any other directory on my server. The database starts despite the control file error, as you can see from the second SQL*Plus prompt. However, I am unsure how to create the control files or correct this error. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Control files are database-specific, since they contain information describing the database (location of data files, etc.) You can't copy them from one database to another.
    Do you have a backup?
