ORA-01157 ORA-01110 ORA-27037 ASM file Addition Issues



This blog is intended to make DBA’s aware of what havoc it will create if we misplace a command of datafile addition in ASM disk group especially in RAC.

Last night I missed the ‘+’ sign of DG01 while adding a tempfile in new prod RAC DB resulted in below error & file creation in default local/non-shared location of $ORACLE_HOME/dbs
Which is not readable by other instance, being a temp file it had less impact on DB but such incident can happen while adding data DB files which will lead to db outage

My Mistake: I missed ‘+’ sign of DG01
SQL>alter tablespace TEMP add tempfile 'DG01' size 20G;



Impact: Any Running session using this file will receive & log error in alert log
SQL> select * from dba_temp_free_space;
ORA-01157: cannot identify/lock data file 1010 - see DBWR trace file
