ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status tips

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting
May 13, 2008

 
Question: I'm getting the error "ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status" at shutdown time:

Sun May 11 18:39:13 2008
Errors in file /oracle/PRD/saptrace/background/prd_arc0_4631.trc:
ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status
HP-UX Error: 2: No such file or directory
Additional information: 4
Sun May 11 18:39:14 2008
Completed: ALTER DATABASE CLOSE NORMAL
Sun May 11 18:39:14 2008
ALTER DATABASE DISMOUNT
Completed: ALTER DATABASE DISMOUNT

 

What causes the "ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status" error?

Answer:  It's a missing file, usually an archived redo log or a parm file:

ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status

Cause: Stat system call returned an error. Additional information indicates
which function encountered the error.

Action: Examine errno.

First, a quick look at the trace file will tell you the exact file name.  The ORA-27037 often happens when you clone a database, and forget to copy a file.

HP-UX Error: 2: No such file or directory

This is a missing file somewhere.

- It could be a missing archivelog file . . . . .
- It could be a file mentioned in your init.ora file . . . .
