Could not open raw device

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

I have installed oracle in my machine and it is running fine. But for some time like 4:00 am-9:00 am, everyday at random time I am facing the following errors: [ OCROSD][3248]utgdv:1:could not open registry key SOFTWAREOracleocr os error The system could not find the environment option that was entered.

[ OCRRAW][3248]proprinit: Could not open raw device

[ default][3248]a_init:7!: Backend init unsuccessful : [33]

[ CSSCLNT][3248]clsssinit: error(33 ) in OCR initialization

[ OCROSD][3248]utgdv:1:could not open registry key SOFTWAREOracleocr os error The system could not find the environment option that was entered.

It is unexpected that registry error is shown randomly and it is not possible for me to make changes registry periodically throughout the day. It may be happened due to the fault of raw device.

I love to request anyone to give the idea resolving this problem.

Hallo Bryan,

Try turning off flash back and see if it will resolve the issue.

To confirm that flash back has been turned off you will need to do the following:

sqlplus sys as sysdba
SQL> shutdown immediate;
SQL> startup mount exclusive;
SQL> alter database open;
alter database open

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-16038: log 3 sequence# 45 cannot be archived
ORA-19809: limit exceeded for recovery files
ORA-00312: online log 3 thread 1: 'C:ORACLEPRODUCT10.2.0ORADATAORCLREDO03.LOG'

At this point, you will have to turn off flashback and see if it will resolve the problem.

Another workaround to that is as follows:

  • Try reinstalling the client with minimal services.
  • Also install few features.

Regards,

Carl
