restore to shared bookmark fails ORA-00308: cannot open archived log (KBA6065)

 

KBA

KBA# 6065

 

Issue

When restoring/refreshing a self-service container from a shared bookmark the recovery can fail with:

Example:

try_manual_recovery=false
ALTER DATABASE RECOVER LOGFILE '/oracle/oradata/OGDMD003/source-archive/OGDMD004_1_176_1042539374.arc';

Linux-x86_64 Error: 2: No such file or directory
Additional information: 3

This shows that the naming conversion for the required archive logs does not match as we are running the command:

ALTER DATABASE RECOVER LOGFILE '/oracle/oradata/OGDMD003/source-archive/OGDMD004_1_176_1042539374.arc';

However we then see the file required as 

/oracle/oradata/OGDMD003/source-archive/OGDMD003_1_176_1042539374.arc

 

Prerequisites

This issue is only seen when using self-service shared bookmarks and if the Oracle database parameter log_archive_format has been altered from the default to include SID specific details like this:

 log_archive_format       = "${ORACLE_SID}_%t_%s_%r.arc"
