ORA-01105: mount is incompatible with mounts by other instances – ORA-19808: recovery destination parameter mismatch

After reboot of both the RAC nodes, we encountered “ORA-01105: mount is incompatible with mounts by other instances” & “ORA-19808: recovery destination parameter  mismatch” oracle error, after diagnosis i came to know about the size of the db recovery parameter, i.e. db_recovery_file_dest_size is mismatch over the nodes.

After setting identical size of the db recovery file destination, infected node up and running smooth as expected.

Error Logs:

 SQL> startup;

DB recovery parameter ‘db_recovery_file_dest_size’ verification on 2nd instance by issuing the following command:

 SQL> show parameter recovery
 NAME TYPE VALUE
 ------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
 db_recovery_file_dest string +DATA
 db_recovery_file_dest_size big integer 150G
 recovery_parallelism integer 0

DB recovery parameter ‘db_recovery_file_dest_size’ verification on 1st instance by issuing the following command:

 SQL> show parameter recovery
 NAME TYPE VALUE
 ------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
 db_recovery_file_dest string +DATA
 db_recovery_file_dest_size big integer 100G
 recovery_parallelism integer 0

According to above verification logs, highlighted area mismatched over the RAC nodes.

Workaround: Set ‘db_recovery_file_dest_size’ at 2nd instance to 100GB, as follows:

SQL> alter system set db_recovery_file_dest_size = 100G scope=spfile;
 System altered.

Bounce 2nd instance by normal shutdown and restart, as follows:

SQL> shutdown

 ORA-01507: database not mounted
 
 ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> startup
 ORACLE instance started.

 Redo Buffers 12132352 bytes
 Database mounted.
 Database opened.

By above workaround, Infected node up and running smooth.

 SQL> select inst_name from v$active_instances;
 INST_NAME
 ------------------------------------------------------------
 database1:>>Instance_I<<
 database2:>>Instance_II<<

Stay Tune 🙂
