so get a load of this - venting on support

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII" a SR is opened due to an issue with dbms_metadata.get_ddl.

Solution: drop and recreate sys.dual,

so the junior DBA does as said and now can't recreate due to ORA-1775 looping chain of synonyms. I'm biting my tongue to not give support a real piece of my mind, oh and this was to an escalated individual.

He comes and sees me to get it fixed, google comes to rescue on how to fix it but geez support, REALLY, DROP DUAL????
