C.2.7. ORA-00257: ARCHIVER ERROR. CONNECT INTERNAL ONLY, UNTIL FREED

Last Updated: 2016-04-20

Condition or Error

It is possible for the Oracle server to get into a state where Tungsten Clustering is online, and with no other errors showing in the log. However, when logging into the Oracle server an error is returned:

ORA-00257: ARCHIVER ERROR. CONNECT INTERNAL ONLY, UNTIL FREED

Causes

  • This is a lack of resources within the Oracle server, and not an issue with Tungsten Clustering.

Rectifications

  • The issue can be addressed by increasing the logical size of the recovery area, by connecting to the Oracle database as the system user and running the fol\ lowing command:

    shell> sqlplus sys/oracle as sysdba
    SQL> ALTER SYSTEM SET db_recovery_file_dest_size = 80G;
