ORA-16000 on click Raw Trace File?

If you see ORA-16000 on clicking the Alert Log tab on a standby database then create the directory object on the primary and replicate it to the standby.

  1. Find background_dump_dest on the standby database
  2. Create two directories on the primary database (with and without the trailing slash) for example:
    • Create directory QUEST_SOO_BDUMP_DIR_STDBY_1 as '/u01/app/oracle/diag/rdbms/spotl105/spotl105/trace/';
    • Create directory QUEST_SOO_BDUMP_DIR_STDBY_2 as '/u01/app/oracle/diag/rdbms/spotl105/spotl105/trace';
  3. Ensure the directory has been replicated to the standby (this may take some time depending on your data guard setup)
  4. Click the Raw Trace File tab on the standby database
