If it no longer causes an ORA-00600 in 11.1, then it's about darned
time they took care of that...
ORA-00600 is supposed to be a "catch-all" for unforeseen or unhandled
errors, like an "assert()" function in "C". I recall being able to
generate the OERI-12235 by simply entering "oracle" at the command-line
since at least Oracle v6; hardly an "unforeseen" or "unhandle-able"
exception to have "argc == 0" -- every single blessed "C" program I
ever wrote handled that, if when I was just goofing around... ;-)

Jeremiah Wilton, your suggestion worked wonderfully, thank you. I also
found that "blissful_ignorance" works quite well, also. =) No to go
surprise my fellow DBAs....

Just type in "oracle" at the UNIX command-line (assuming you're on
UNIX, haven't tried it on Windows), and you'll get an ORA-00600 
in the "alert log" file. Great way to wake up the DBAs...;-)
Hope this helps...

Good day, List,
I am playing with 11g and want to experiment with the Fault
Infrastructure. I would like to force an ora-600. I thought there was an
event one could set to crash smon with a ora-600, but looking through
$OH/rdbms/mesg/oraus.msg, I cannot find it. Anyone recall it off-hand?
Or if I could force a bug, that would be nice. So far the bugs I have
are not reproducible. Especially when the testcase is not
PS - gotta love those events that tell the customer "do not set this
Isn't that just asking to be set?
