By mistake I deleted the control file. But I have a old copy of that, with that I started the database. Instance started but finally, it gives error #ora01102-cannot mount the db in EXCLUSIVE mode. How can I open the DB in the situation. Pl help me.Thanks in advance.

If you have backup copy from the back to the right location, if not copy from one of your control file and rename it to the file that was deleted( I hope you have more than one file).
shutdown the database and start up, you won't have any problem.

if u have multiple controlfiles , then u can just copy from the mirrored copy, else startup nomount and
recreate the controlfile using create controlfile.

After creating the controlfile, shutdown the database, execute the controlfile

Try shutdown abort;
and then startup nomount again..

there must be another message accompanying this message , reuse before database keyword
and be sure u have the current logfiles.
then do startup nomount and create the controlfle.I hope the database is not already corrupt.

Is the control file script correct?, I have not disturbed any other file.Only I deleted was control file.
repeatedly I am getting similar error message
