In the past, we setup a standby database on our production server. My OS is HPUX, Oracle 10g and my database is in archive mod. We are no longer using the standby database method. My problem now is that one of my tablespace (/oradata/tn/rd2_temp 20gb) became 100% full on my production system. In trying to provide more space, I removed one of the standby redo logs. Instead of using ALTER database, I just did a rm from the OS. As I said earlier my STANDBY DB is inoperatable.
When I tried to drop the tablespace(/oradata/tn/rd2_temp it is 20gb), I am getting an oracle error (ora-19528 redo logs being cleared may need access to files). Im also getting and INSTANCE LOCK on ARC4. The rd2_temp tablespace is now offline. If I get rid of rd2_temp, I will be able to gain more space back to /oradata/tn.
My database is still up and working okay.
What can I do to fix the problem.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
