Oracle dbms_workload_repository awr_global_report_text fails with ORA-06553 PLS-307

My last post was about generating AWR reports from SQL – not a very complicated case. “But” – little word, big meaning. And suddenly we get a strange error message. In my example, I was especially interested in a Real Application Cluster’s “global” report. The subprogram call for that purpose is dbms_workload_repository.awr_global_report_text(), accepting the DBID, begin […]

Oracle 12c Multitenant: impdp fails w/ ORA-31625 and ORA-01031 because of Database Vault

Things are different in Oracle Database 12c with multitenancy option.
