ORA-09925: Unable to create audit trail file

I received this error message when I started my virtual machine and tried to logon to my database as sysdba to startup the instance.
[oracle@node1 ~]$ sqlplus / as sysdba

ERROR:
ORA-09925: Unable to create audit trail file
Linux Error: 30: Read-only file system
Additional information: 9925
ORA-09925: Unable to create audit trail file
Linux Error: 30: Read-only file system
Additional information: 9925

- I rebooted my machine and got following messages which pointed to some errors encountered during filesystem check and instructed to run fsck manually.

[root@node1 ~]# init 6

Checking filesystems

/: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.
(i.e., without -a or -p options)
*** An error occurred during the filesystem check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):

– I entered password for root to initiate filesystem check. As a result I was prompted multiple no. of times to allow fixing of  various filesystem errors.

(Repair filesystem) 1 # fsck
Fix(y)?

- After all the errors had been fixed, filesystem check was restarted

Restarting e2fsck from the beginning...

/: ***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED *****
/: ***** REBOOT LINUX *****

- After filesystem had been finally checked to be correct, I exited for reboot to continue.

(Repair filesystem) 2 # exit

– After the reboot, I could successfully connect to my database as sysdba .

[oracle@node1 ~]$ sqlplus / as sysdba

  1. Nice Posts , I would suggest ,when you get this error always verify the mount point space availability as the first thing ,that may also prompt the same error and we should be able to fix these issues online .
