Oracle data pump import of ArcSDE 9.3.1 ST_GEOMETRY tables fails (10g to 11g)

I made a data pump dump (expdp) of the SDE and data owner schemas (our data owner = GISU) from a working test instance. I can use the dump file to successfully import to an instance of the same platform (Oracle 10g on same hardware and OS).

However, importing into an 11g R2 lab instance only partially succeeds. The SDE objects get created and populated. But rows fail to load into feature class tables having an SDE.ST_GEOMETRY shape type. An example of the errors I get are:

ORA-31693: Table data object "GISU"."HYDRO24K_ARCS" failed to load/unload and is being skipped due to error:
ORA-02354: error in exporting/importing data
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kpudpxcs_ctxConvertStream_ref_1], [SYS_TYPEID("SHAPE")], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []

In the 11g instance, a select * from dba_objects where status = 'INVALID' returns zero rows. Finally, the A and D tables in GISU get created and populated. But of course A and D tables have no SHAPE column.

Details about expdp platform:
* ArcSDE version: 9.3.1
* OS and version: x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga) 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5
* Oracle version: 10.2.0.4.0
* Oracle compatible parameter: 10.2.0.3.0
* Syntax used for export:
expdp <dba user>@<10g source instance> DUMPFILE=Sde10g.dmp LOGFILE=Sde10g.log
DIRECTORY=<data pump dir> SCHEMAS=SDE,GISU

Details about impdp platform:
* ArcSDE version: 9.3.1 (SDE and GISU schemas are empty on the target instance but will obviously be 9.3.1 after the import)
* OS and version: x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga) 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5
* Oracle version: 11.2.0.2.0
* Oracle compatible parameter: 10.2.0.3.0 (haven't upgraded this yet because it's irreversible and we're still getting acquainted with 11g / testing)
* Syntax used for import:
impdp <dba user>@<11g source instance> directory=<data pump dir> schemas=SDE,GISU
dumpfile=Sde10g.dmp
logfile=Sde11g.log

Main questions:

Q1) Is importing SDE 9.3.1 from 10g to 11g using data pump supported?
Q2) If not Q1, why?
Q3) If not Q1, what is the recommended method for migrations? Or is upgrading in place first the preferred solution?

Other thoughts / questions

* I've read that using the parallel option with the 11g data pump import can cause failures. Thing is, I haven't explicitly asked for parallelism. Are 11g impdp jobs run using parallelism by default?

* What's going on with SYS_TYPEID("SHAPE")?

Try suggestions made in the following KB

http://resources.arcgis.com/content/kbase?fa=articleShow&d=34329


Thanks Vishal. I tried again using the method recommended above and got the same exact errors as before. Also, one of the errors listed in the KB is not the same as the one I'm getting. I get the first two it lists, but I don't get:

ORA-39779: type "SDE"."ST_GEOMFROMTEXT" not found or conversion to latest version is not possible".

Instead, I get the following (note the different function):
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kpudpxcs_ctxConvertStream_ref_1], [SYS_TYPEID("SHAPE")], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []

So there is something different going on. What do you advise?

Any more thoughts? Should I open an SR with Oracle or might I be missing some steps? If I didn't mention it already, I can take the 10g dump file (containing both the SDE and data owner schemas) and import it into a 10g instance without any problems. There was no need to do SDE first and then the data owner. Not so with importing the 10g dump file into an 11g instance.

Also, would the old exp/imp utilities (pre-data pump) be worth giving a try?

koraykey,

Disabling that trigger will certainly avoid getting that error when versioning SDO_Geometry feature classes or creating multi-versioned views on feature classes that were versioned in previous releases.  I'm not sure how Oracle would feel about having one of their triggers disabled though....

In this case I will be very surprised if this helps as danarng said that they were using SDE.ST_GEOMETRY.  So metadata isn't stored in the SDO_GEOM_METADATA views.

danarng,

It kind of sounds like there is a problem with the type when the SYS_TYPE function is called, so maybe having two dump files would actually solve the problem.   If I were you I would open an incident with ESRI technical support.

Something else that you could try, if you haven't already, is dropping the table indexes and disassociating any stats before you export the data.  As for giving exp or imp a try, I think for ST_Geometry you have to use the expdp and impdp.

Finally, here is a KB article with a number links to other known issues with import/export of ST_Geometry:

I can't help but wonder if you can bridge the gap by installing ArcSDE in the 11g instance,
capture the DDL to recreate the tables, then import them, as three discrete steps.  I've done
this dozens of times with SDEBINARY -> SDELOB conversion using 'exp' and 'imp', between
9i and 10g, and from 10g Windows to 10g Linux, and from 10gR2 to 11gR2.

It just seems too much to ask a single utility to get the entire process perfect, which is what
you're expecting of 'impdp' in this situation (and 'expdp' just can't be smart enough to organize
the data in the perfect order that 'impdp' would need to make the attempt).

Upgrading in place has its allures, but I find it beneficial to do a fresh database implementation
with each release, so that optimization of the vector tablespaces and raster blocks can occur
(this usually involves editing the DDL SQL text to change storage clauses and reloading the
rasters with different tile sizes to reduce chaining [especially when going from a 16k to 8k
DB_BLOCK_SIZE]).  One way to achieve this is to optimize in a 10g->10g transfer, then do
an 11g in-situ upgrade.

Problem : ORA-39127, ORA-13249 from EXP and EXPDP when exporting Spatial indexes in 11.2.0.2
Applies to:
Oracle Spatial - Version: 11.2.0.2 to 11.2.0.2 - Release: 11.2 to 11.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Symptoms
Since upgrading the database to 11.2.0.2, EXP and EXPDP generate errors while exporting some Spatial indexes:

EXP:

EXP-00008: ORACLE error 13249 encountered
ORA-13249: Only alphanumeric characters and "_" are allowed in SDO_DIMNAME
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_EXPORT_EXTENSION", line 270

...

Changes
Beginning 11.2.0.2, the DIMINFO of Spatial indexes in MDSYS.SDO_GEOM_METADATA_TABLE cannot have a <space> in SDO_DIMNAME.
Cause
In earlier releases, a <space> in SDO_DIMNAME is acceptable.  Therefore, in an upgraded database, these "invalid" data already exist in MDSYS.SDO_GEOM_METADATA_TABLE, and cause ORA-13249 error during export when the metadata is accessed.
Solution
Update the index's metadata and remove the <space> from its SDO_DIMNAME.

Example:

SQL> SELECT table_name, column_name AS colname, diminfo
     FROM USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA;

TABLE_NAME   COLNAM DIMINFO(SDO_DIMNAME, SDO_LB, SDO_UB, SDO_TOLERANCE)
------------ ------ -----------------------------------------------------
COLA_MARKETS SHAPE  SDO_DIM_ARRAY(SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('X Axis', 0, 20, .005),
                     SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('Y', 0, 20, .005))

SQL> -- Changing "X Axis" TO "XAxis"
SQL> UPDATE user_sdo_geom_metadata
     SET diminfo = MDSYS.SDO_DIM_ARRAY(
                  MDSYS.SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('XAxis', 0, 20, 0.005),
                  MDSYS.SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('Y', 0, 20, 0.005))
     WHERE table_name = 'COLA_MARKETS'
     AND column_name = 'SHAPE';

1 row updated.

SQL> COMMIT;

Commit complete.

SQL> -- Query USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA to view the change
SQL> SELECT table_name, column_name AS colname, diminfo
     FROM USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA;

TABLE_NAME   COLNAM DIMINFO(SDO_DIMNAME, SDO_LB, SDO_UB, SDO_TOLERANCE)
------------ ------ -----------------------------------------------------
COLA_MARKETS SHAPE  SDO_DIM_ARRAY(SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('XAxis', 0, 20, .005),
                    SDO_DIM_ELEMENT('Y', 0, 20, .005))

I have revised the material about valid characters in the "Geometry Metadata
Views" section (Section 2.8 in the current manual) in my document source file
to include this:

------------------
The following considerations apply to schema, table, and column names, and to
any SDO_DIMNAME values, that are stored in any Oracle Spatial metadata views:

- They must contain only letters, numbers, and underscores. For example, such
a name cannot contain a space ( ), an apostrophe ('), a quotation mark ("),
or a comma (,).

[etc.]
---------------------

This revised text will appear in the next published version of the Oracle
Spatial Developer's Guide.

I am having the same problem when exporting from 11g R2 and importing into another 11G R2 instance.  The issue appears to be on import on 11G.  I'm going to open a premium incident on this..
