    Instance terminating due to error 221

    Hello all,

    I am receving the following error periodically:

    ORA-00206: error in writing (block 3, # blocks 1) of controlfile
    ORA-00202: controlfile: 'E:\NEW\CONTROL02.CTL'
    ORA-27072: skgdisp: I/O error
    OSD-04008: WriteFile() failure, unable to write to file
    O/S-Error: (OS 33) The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file.

    CKPT: terminating instance due to error 221
    Instance terminated by CKPT, pid = 3504


    This problem seems to happen just before the database files are backed up by Veritas Netbackup. However, the Oracle agent is configured for this database, and this problem happens sporadically. In addition, the database is bounced prior to the Veritas backup.

    I have disabled Norton Antivirus from scanning the control files of the database during our nightly scans. How can I tell what is locking the control file??

    Thanks!
