Restoring Oracle via tape to different server

I've restored via tape /usr/local/oracle to a different (Linux) server. When I log in as sysdba and type 'startup,' I receive an error message. I got a verification that the data was backed up on the tape and I received a verification that the files were restored okay from the same tape. Any help you can offer in helping me get things up and running would be greatly appreciated.

Because of circumstances that would take way too long to explain, I've restored via tape /usr/local/oracle to a

different (Linux) server. When I log in as sysdba and type 'startup,' I receive this error message:

SQL> startup
ORACLE instance started.

Total System Global Area  168892012 bytes
Fixed Size                   452204 bytes

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kcratr1_lostwrt], [], 
[], [], [], [], [], []

I got a verification that the data was backed up on the tape and I received a verification that the files were restored okay from the same tape.

Any help you can offer in helping me get things up and running would be greatly appreciated.

The ORA-600 [kcratr1_lostwrt] error occurs because the last block written by the Oracle database was lost. You'll have to perform some recovery. Try the following steps in SQL*Plus as SYS:

  1. STARTUP MOUNT
  2. RECOVER DATABASE;
  3. ALTER DATABASE OPEN;
