ORA-19502: write error on file “”, block number xxxxxxxx (block size=8192)

Today morning, My one of the RMAN full database backup failed with RMAN-03002, ORA-19502 and ORA-27072 error. After diagnosing the problem it was space issue only.

There is no space available for RMAN full backup.

Error log:

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of backup plus archivelog command at 08/06/2015 01:16:57
ORA-19502: write error on file "/BACKUP/PROD/weekly_full/bkup_20150606_0vq8p2h0_1_1.rman", block number 2873985 (block size=8192)
ORA-27072: File I/O error
Linux-x86_64 Error: 25: Inappropriate ioctl for device
Additional information: 4
Additional information: 2873985
Additional information: 696320


Just reclaim the storage space by setting appropriate retention to RMAN backup policy and deleted some old files that not needed for any kind of recovery.

By doing above steps, RMAN backup started successfully.

Stay Tune. 🙂
