Originally posted by itwizzkid It's exactly what Iam saying. I recover all the datafiles. When I attempt to open the database, I get SQL> alter database open;
alter database open
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01092: ORACLE instance terminated. Disconnection forced.
I then start the db mount.. alter database open; and get ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01113: file 1 needs media recovery
ORA-01110: data file 1: 'E:\ORACLE\ORADATA\TRAIN1\SYSTEM01.DBF'.
I'm going round in cycles.
Try going around in a few more cycles,
and see if it allows you to open the database.
