MRP process on standby stops with ORA-00600

A rather not so great post about an ORA-00600 error i faced on a standby database. Environement was on Sun Super Cluster machine. MRP process was hitting ORA-00600 while trying to apply a specific archive log.

The error message was something like this

MRP0: Background Media Recovery terminated with error 600
Errors in file /u01/app/oracle/product/
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [2619], [539], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []
Recovery interrupted!

Some googling and MOS searches revealed that the error was due to corrupted archive log file. Recopying the archive file from primary and restarting the recovery resolved the issue. The fist argument of the ORA-600 is actually the sequence no of the archive it is trying to apply.

So there is a new toy in the market for database geeks : Oracle has released database 12c. Every social platform is abuzz with the 12c activity. So thought that I should also complete the ritual Winking smile

In this post Aman has already summed up many important links.

Maria Colgan has posted some useful links here.

And here is a link to a slidedeck about Upgrading and Migrating to 12c.

Happy 12c’ing !
