Problem solving strategies sometimes find clear causes and answers and sometimes not, in this case analyzing the facts did show the way to find a workaround.
It happened on a multi TB RAC Database.
Symptoms observed were that queries on a partitioned table started to fail with ORA-1410 on some partitions.
The initial diagnostic was of a logical corruption affecting one specific datafile, in this case a shared raw device. Some of these partitions were dropped and recreated using create as select from a backup.
Once the create as select finished, checkup on the new partitions again returned ORA-1410, all traces pointing to the same raw device.
The common factor was always the same device. Building a new raw device and moving all partitions siting on the affected one solved the problem.
