    Message file not found

    Hi all,

    I have just recently taken over looking after a database. Upon checking the alert log i found several of these messages:

    ORA-0nnnn: Message nnnnn not found; no message file for product=RDBMS, facility=ORA; arguments: [18]

    where nnnn is the ora-error number.

    None of these errors seem to be serious but why is the message file not found? Is it because the installation was not done correctly or the ORACLE_HOME paths have been screwed up?

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    chucks

    Any of these two:

    How do fix it if it is a corrupt installation? At the mo i cant see any hinderance to the database. The only problem seems to be the Oracle alert log messages are not translated ?

    Thanks,
    Chucks

    Cool


    First check that the ORA_NLS33 environment parameter is set correctly.

    HINT: Default location is: $ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data

    ORA_NLS33 does not exist in 10g; it's ORA_NLS10. Also, take a look at Metalink note 372824.1. Some of the more recent critical patch updates can cause this and you need to build oraus.msb from oraus.msg to fix it.
