- Because of failed backups, the disk used for transaction logs appears to be full.
- The database is not accepting connections, so I cannot run the (HP Data Protector) backup job manually.
- The Oracle instance directly mounts disk from a SAN, so there isn't any file system visible to Windows.
The database service is running, however. Is there a simple way to recover the database, maybe to the point that the backup job can be re-run and restore service?
