How to Resolve ORA-00283 and ORA-00264

ORA-00283 and ORA-00264

When you saw both ORA-00283 and ORA-00264 at the same time like the following:

SQL> recover database;
ORA-00283: recovery session canceled due to errors
ORA-00264: no recovery required

Don't worry about it, it means that the controlfile and data files have been consistent, no recovery is required to open the database.

Usually, it's because:

  • The database has been recovered to the latest change, no further change can be applied to it.
  • The database is duplicated from a cold backup.
  • The database was shutdown normally.
