ORA-01266: Unable to create unique file name

Cause : Unable to create a unique file name for an Oracle managed file. Oracle tried several names but each file name was already in use in the default destination directory for the file type.

Action - How to fix it : DBA Scripts :: www.high-oracle.com/scripts

Retry the operation. If that fails, also, it may be necessary to change the default destination directory for the file type and then retry.
