RE: Help - Corrupted Block - Lob Segment - NOLOGGING

Sam Bootsma


Thanks for the suggestion. The documentation says the dbms_repair
ignores "out-of-line" lobs. Our corrupted block is an out-of-line lob,
so I don't think this will work for us. I passed this on to Oracle
Support anyway, to see what they will do.

Hmmmm, that is interesting. The name of the product is Harvest, and the
vendor is CA.

The problem with "NOLOGGING" is the fact that your blocks are no longer
by logging mechanism, which means that you cannot recover them. That's
for performance - until you have to recover. The general advice for
nologging is to
to use it for things that can be easily re-created, like indexes or

It's either DBMS_REPAIR or your harvest has failed. Position of a DBA is
to the position of a director of FEMA. It's a very comfortable position,
until disaster
strikes.....May Bacchus, the god of harvest be with you.
