What does your trace file say? Look that up and post results.
WEhen looking up your error I get:
shamrock% oerr ORA 01579
01579, 00000, "write error occurred during recovery"
// *Cause: A write error occurred during recovery
// *Action: Consult trace files for the nature of the write error, and
// correct error.
ps: are you using RMAN to recover or command line?

May be your datafile is corrupt, or your hard disk is having some bad sectors.
Try to restore it on some other machine

Hi, thanks for the response. The trace file says OSD error.
DBWR generates the following error.
KCF: write/open error block=0x305f1 online=1
error=27069 txt: 'OSD-04026: Invalid parameter passed. (OS 198129)'
I don't know what is OSD error. Consultated Oracle Support, and the HW vendor.
The M/c is running Microsoft Cluster Service. Disks are Okay.
Pl reply at the earliest.

Are you using any third party backup / archive software by any chance?

No we are not using any 3rd party backup s/w. we are using RMAN in command mode for backup and recovery.
Anybody can u tell me what is meaning of OSD. Have any one of u experienced the same.
