Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 9.2 to 11.2]

Information in this document applies to any platform.

IMPORTANT :- Please note that the same principle applies in all versions but the columns included in aud$ change from one major version to another.

The Below Option is when you have no valid backup to recover the corrupted block or table from.


Q1: Logged in as sys schema:

SQL>  select * from aud$;

Results: some, but not all data is returned.  Getting ORA-08103 error.

SQL> select count(*) from aud$;

results: immediate ORA-08103 error
Is it possible to drop and recreate the sys.aud$ table?
