While getting adventureous and trying to enable clonedb on a RAC database running on ASM (set clonedb parameter=true and restart the database), I got this error on alert log:
Mon Nov 16 11:11:40 2015 CloneDB: created bitmap file RAC_bitmap.dbf USER (ospid: 15767): terminating the instance due to error 17514
RAC is the name of the database. The <SID>_bitmap.dbf file was correctly created on $ORACLE_HOME/dbs
Then it just crash the instance. Google and Metalink did not yet indexed this error. But here its description:
$ oerr ora 17514 17514, 00000, "Access to clonedb bitmap file failed" // *Cause: Accessing the bitmap block file in clonedb environment has // encountered an error // *Action: check additional error messages in the trace file and call // Oracle Support Services
The trace files did not help much. I did not investigate the problem further.
