I am getting the following errors when I try drop a tablespace.
I already did the following.

a) The tablespace & its datafiles offline.
b) I have purged dba_recyclebin.


SQL> drop tablespace db_maintenance including contents and datafiles;
drop tablespace db_maintenance including contents and datafiles
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1
ORA-38301: can not perform DDL/DML over objects in Recycle Bin

If you put the tablespace offline then the object in the recycle bin are not purged.
The tablespace MUST be online to be able to purge the associated recycle bin objects.

As Michel has explained, first you have to purge recyclebin first then offline tablespace and then drop tablespace. So, now bring online the tablespace, purge dba_recyclebin; offline the tablespace and then drop tablespace.

If you still get the problem, let us know.

Connect as a DBA (not SYS/SYSDBA) and execute:
alter tablespace db_maintenance online;
purge tablespace db_maintenance;
drop tablespace db_maintenance including contents and datafiles;

I think you're in a bug that existed in 10.2.0.1, post the result of:
select owner, segment_name, partition_name, segment_type 
from dba_segments 
where tablespace_name='DB_MAINTENANCE'
  and segment_name like 'BIN$%'
  and (owner, segment_name) not in (select owner, object_name from dba_recyclebin)
order by 1, 2, 3
/

Regards
Michel

yes. I see certain objects for the tablespace in segments view

SQL> select SEGMENT_NAME,SEGMENT_TYPE,owner from dba_segments where tablespace_name='DB_MAINTENANCE';

SEGMENT_NAME SEGMENT_TYPE OWNER
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------ ------------------------------
BIN$Pks1AnxmMCTgQ8+Ct10wJA==$0 TABLE ORACLE
BIN$Pks790fcQEzgQ8+Ct11ATA==$0 TABLE ORACLE

This is NOT the query I asked, it was just simple to copy and paste it, why don't you do it? It is a very rude attitude towards someone that tries to help you for days.

So you are in the bug.
And, sorry, I can't remember the workaround which was updates in dictionary.
Check MOS/Metalink for the workaround or even open a SR to Oracle and you will have a supported answer.

Michel

I have an idea, not sure it works but try it:
alter session set recyclebin=OFF;
drop table "BIN$Pks1AnxmMCTgQ8+Ct10wJA==$0";
drop table "BIN$Pks790fcQEzgQ8+Ct11ATA==$0";
alter session set recyclebin=ON;
drop tablespace...
