Re: Undo tablespace offline and ORA-00376

Giovanni Cuccu


Hi Sami,
 I was hitting a very similar issue on on linux (non RAC). I
posted a similar problem on this list and I got some very interesting
answers. IIRC it seems that the only solution is to drop the old undo
tablespace(s) (after a clear shutdown and startup in order to be sure
that none needs undo info from the old tablespace).
Hope it helps,
