Hi All,

I am getting below mentioned error while doing online redefinition.

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-29855: error occurred in the execution of ODCIINDEXCREATE routine
ORA-20000: Oracle Text error:
DRG-11000: invalid keyword REPLACE
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_REDEFINITION", line 1173
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_REDEFINITION", line 1712

You need to provide the original table structure, using describe, and the code that you ran using dbms_redefinition.

Combining this with your other recent post about converting varchar2 to nvarchar2, I gather that you are trying to use dbms_redefinition to convert a table that contains a varchar2 to a table that contains nvarchar2 and that this same table has a context index and you are getting the error that you posted during redefinition. I am unable to reproduce the error. The error referes to "REPLACE". I don't see where that would be used, unless you have used it as a table or column name and that causes confusion. I have provided as simple an example as I could below. You need to provide a similar copy and paste that demonstrates how you are getting the error.

Thanks mam,

I am mentioning some of the commands that are being used in the create index script while creating the database.

alter index INTERMEDIA1 REBUILD parameters('replace sync(on commit) lexer hyphen_lexer') ;
alter index INTERMEDIA13 REBUILD parameters('replace sync(on commit) lexer hyphen_lexer') ;
alter index INTERMEDIA14 REBUILD parameters('replace sync(on commit) filter ctxsys.INSO_FILTER lexer hyphen_lexer') ;
alter index tce_subject REBUILD parameters('replace sync(on commit) lexer hyphen_lexer') ;
alter index tce_body REBUILD parameters('replace sync(on commit) lexer hyphen_lexer') ;


These are the commands that are being used in the database scripts for the indexes on tables.

If they are helpful for you to understand that what exactly is causing the problem.

Thanks
Deepak

I have searched all over internet to check if ever someone else also got this error.
Quote:

The error referes to "REPLACE".


but unfortunately did not find anything.

I think you may have encountered a bug. It appears that if you use dbms_redefinition on a table with a text index that has been altered using replace, it does not recognize that syntax. The only workaround that I can think of is to drop the index, recreate the index with all of the parameters, without using any alter index statements, then run the redefinition. Please see the reproduction of the problem followed by the workaround below.

-- reproduction of problem:
SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> -- table, data, altered index:

  2  /

Index altered.

Hello Mam,

I followed your test case but when are dropping the index and re-creating it second time followed the redefinition of the column in executed the script and came across this error.

DECLARE
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-42011: error occurred while completing the redefinition
ORA-12008: error in materialized view refresh path
ORA-29886: feature not supported for domain indexes
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_REDEFINITION", line 76
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_REDEFINITION", line 1376
ORA-06512: at line 31



Now what is wrong with the code?

Thanks n Regards
Deepak

I received the following response to my post on the OTN forums, so if you have Oracle support, you can look up the bugs for any patches or workarounds.

"yes, we have bug 10355282 and bug 8660944 for the dictionary metadata inconsistency after "ALTER INDEX ... REBUILD REPLACE" command"
