It's been one week since I last tried to run my final project that I worked on in my last internship at some banking company.

Suddenly, my webapps (Java project) in Eclipse can't start. In the log it says that it failed to make a connection to the Oracle database, with some error listener in it. So I try to connect the database manually from the SQL developer. It says

ORA-12528: TNS:Listener: All Appropriate instances are blocking new connections.

I've read some solutions, and I tried to restart the Oracle services including the orcl and listener. After I restarted it, the error becomes

ORA-12505: TNS:listener does not currently know of SID given in connect descriptor.

After a while, it becomes ORA-12528 again. Can someone help? My thesis defense is next week.

  • The alert log is on the filesystem csl-oracle.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/… – Philᵀᴹ Mar 9 '15 at 11:07
  • @Phil anything from the alert log? :( i'm kinda panicked – Nico Mar 10 '15 at 15:27
  • Did the IP address of the server change? If you use IP address in the listener.ora or tnsnames.ora file and the IP address changes that could be an issue. You should check both files and make sure that the IP address is correct for both. Also see if a listener is running, if you bring up a listener that is pointing to the wrong tns_admin directory then try to start it again the listener won't start if the port is blocked. Finally since you are using Windows you may want to reboot. – Gandolf989 Mar 10 '15 at 15:29
  • both is still the same: (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC1521)) (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost)(PORT = 1521)) the listener is up, but can't connect to the instance db... – Nico Mar 10 '15 at 15:59
  • try changing it from localhost to the name of your computer then stop and restart the listener service. – Gandolf989 Mar 10 '15 at 16:03

It's signalling a 'ORA-214' during instance startup, which is really bad.

$ oerr ORA 214
00214, 00000, "control file '%s' version %s inconsistent with file '%s' version %s"
// *Cause: An inconsistent set of control files, datafiles/logfiles, and redo
//         files was used.
// *Action: Use a consistant set of control files, datafiles/logfiles, and redo
//         log files. That is, all the files must be for the same database
//         and from the same time period.

In other words, one of your control files might be corrupted. They are supposed to be identical.

To fix this, we'll try each control file in turn to see if the database starts OK with it.

Follow this step-by-step, to the letter. MAKE SURE YOU BACK THEM UP, AS BELOW. You have been warned.

Make a backup of BOTH control files to a location of your choice. EG:

copy C:\APP\NICO\ORADATA\ORCL\CONTROL01.CTL C:\TMP\CONTROL01.CTL
copy C:\APP\NICO\FLASH_RECOVERY_AREA\ORCL\CONTROL02.CTL C:\TMP\CONTROL02.CTL

Next, make sure the database isn't up:

$ sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL*Plus: Release 11.2.0.4.0 Production on Tue Mar 10 19:14:49 2015

and Real Application Testing options

SQL> shutdown abort;
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> 

Now we'll overwrite the first control file with the second one, then attempt to start the database:

copy C:\TMP\CONTROL02.CTL C:\APP\NICO\ORADATA\ORCL\CONTROL01.CTL

Now try and start the database:

$ sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL*Plus: Release 11.2.0.4.0 Production on Tue Mar 10 19:15:54 2015

SQL> startup

Redo Buffers                6623232 bytes
Database mounted.
Database opened.
SQL> 

If it says Database opened and doesn't throw a ORA- error, it's fixed.

If it throws another ORA-214 or a message about a bad control file, we need to try the other control file. To do that, make sure the database is down (as above), then copy the other control file and try the startup again:

copy C:\TMP\CONTROL01.CTL C:\APP\NICO\ORADATA\ORCL\CONTROL01.CTL
copy C:\TMP\CONTROL01.CTL C:\APP\NICO\FLASH_RECOVERY_AREA\ORCL\CONTROL02.CTL

Note that this would have been easier to fix with 3 control files, as you could have md5'ed each one to find out which was the bad apple.

If the above doesn't work, you have further problems - if so, edit your question with the error message presented by SQL*Plus, and from the end of the alert log.

I cannot reinforce how important it is that you backup the two control files somewhere safe before trying the above!

It's entirely possible that there's another problem with a data file or redo log file, but we'll try this first.

    THANKS PHIL! THIS SOLUTION SAVED MY DAY! LOOKING FORWARD TO LEARN MORE FROM YOU! :) – Nico Mar 11 '15 at 3:03
