Hi -

I am having problems setting up a new snapshot controlfile name through RMAN. I ran the command CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO 'filename'but it has returned the following error message.

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03002: failure of configure command at 03/18/2005 10:48:19
ORA-00230: operation disallowed: snapshot controlfile enqueue unavailable

Can anyone help.

Regards,
Pat

Hi

oerr ora 230
00230, 00000, "operation disallowed: snapshot controlfile enqueue unavailable"
// *Cause: The attempted operation cannot be executed at this time because
// another process currently holds the snapshot controlfile enqueue.
// *Action: Retry the operation after the concurrent operation that is holding
// the snapshot controlfile enqueue terminates.


Shutdown all ora processes or boot the box
