Let's see if I understand this ......

You have a couple of 'live' instances and a 9.0.1.x 'infrastructure' instance ('cause that's the only version of infra database instance allowed). Which should be in separate ORACLE_HOMEs and are hopefully full, and not customized (bastardized), installs, therefore providing two versions of the exp command.

Probably on a Wintel box ('cause of the McAfee/Norton AV statement).

Don't quite get this part - you have a separate 9.0.1 client, or the 9.0.1 client from the Infrastruture is taking precedence?

And, knowing your skill set, you've checked the connectivity to the using both the 9.0.1 and and the SQLPlus executables - which of course, in Windows, implies the correct ORACLE_HOME since the selecting the binary with a full OH/bin path automatically decides the OH.

And there are no clusters. (Except, of course, SYS owns at least 6 cluster objs such as C_COBJ#, C_OBJ#, C_TS# ... )

And the ORA-1403 and EXP-00056 are happening consistently from both the 9.2 and 9.0 exp executables?

And (you could not know this) my full exp of a test database, using both a and exp executables, cleanly passes the cluster def'n export both times.

Then I'd guess you either have corrupt executables (unlikely) or a corrupt catalog.

But that's just a guess.
