ORA-00600 & ORA-48254 when upgrading to Oracle 12cR2

while upgrading a database from Oracle 12cR1 to 12cR2….the following errors were thrown in the alert log file:

Errors in file /oraclex/orcl/diag/rdbms/orcl/orcl/trace/orcl_m000_125839.trc (incident=708075):

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [Migrate Relation Failure], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []

ORA-48254: Migration Error [dbgrmmdmr_max_length_change] [PDB_SPACE_MGMT] [2] [66] [32] [9]

Incident details in: /oraclex/orcl/diag/rdbms/orcl/orcl/incident/incdir_708075/orcl_m000_125839_i708075.trc

Use ADRCI or Support Workbench to package the incident.


This is due to old ADR setup, so you need to reset ADR location

SQL> show parameter diagnostic_dest
SQL> ALTER SYSTEM SET diagnostic_dest=/orcl/ora23/diagnostic/ scop=spfile;


ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [qerixAddNotNullStopKeyPredicate:1] in the alert log !

one of the databases i am supporting ( on version 12cR1 was throwing ORA-600 in the alert log:

if this error is infrequent then you can ignore, otherwise as a workaround is to disable the Automatic SQL Tuning Tasks by executing the following:

client_name => ‘sql tuning advisor’,
operation => NULL,
window_name => NULL );

As a consequence, this will disable all automatic SQL tuning tasks but you can still perform “on-demand” SQL tuning to get advice on tuning specific SQL statements.

My Oracle database have crashed for some reason, and while trying to start up:

in order to resolve this you need t perform recovery, per the following steps:

SQL>Startup mount ;

SQL>Show parameter control_files

SQL> select a.member, a.group#, b.status from v$logfile a ,v$log b where a.group#=b.group# and b.status=’CURRENT’ ;

remark: write down the name of the redo logs and their paths…

SQL> Shutdown abort ;

remark:Take a OS Level backup of the controlfiles in different directory

SQL> Startup mount ;

SQL> recover database using backup controlfile until cancel ;

Remark: Enter location of redo logs (refer to the query where you have wrote down the location of redologs),then hit ‘Enter’

SQL> Alter database open resetlogs ;
