dba_registry shows invalid enries

Postby vivek_k47 » Sat Jun 08, 2013 5:30 am

Hi,
When i run the command:
select comp_name,version,status from dba_registry;
some of the items show the status as INVALID.(Oracle database packages and types,oracle rules manager,oracle workspace manager,oracle expression filter,oracle multimedia)

What is the reason for this and how can i set them to VALID.
Thanks.

Hi.

This can happen during upgrades and patches. Especially if you have not followed the full path.

1) Make sure everything in your installation is valid. You can do this using the "$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlrp.sql" script. It is discussed here:

http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/mis ... bjects.php

Check for invalid objects.

http://www.oracle-base.com/dba/script.p ... bjects.sql

If anything is invalid, investigate and fix it. For example, if it is a procedure, do:

Code: Select all
ALTER PROCEDURE my_proc COMPILE;
SHOW ERRORS


This will tell you why it fails to compile, so you can investigate and fix the issues.

2) Once everything is compiled, and working as normal, you can force the registry to say a different value, as discussed here:
