RE: or for AIX 5.3 (64 bit)

Gogala, Mladen


Be careful with It cannot export from lower versions of Oracle. I didn't have any other problems, but this one is

a big one. The compatibility with the previous releases is broken. After closer inspection,

DBMS_EXPORT_EXTENSION package has 3 more units in then in



The error I am getting is:


. exporting table DEF$_AQCALL 0 rows exported
EXP-00056: ORACLE error 904 encountered


This is yet another Oracle patchset to have QA done by customers. I have a TAR open

about this and support analysts are dragging their feet. I should forward this to Mr. Scott Adams.
