Last updated on JANUARY 13, 2018

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version to [Release 10.1 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The tablespaces have been converted from dictionary managed to locally managed tablespaces using the DBMS_SPACE_ADMIN.TABLESPACE_MIGRATE_TO_LOCAL procedure.

The Impact Report when using 'Reorganize' for any of the tablespaces via the Database Control, shows the error :

Tablespace AUD contains the unsupported segment SYS.8.7623 of
type SPACE HEADER. Reorganization of this type of segment is not supported.
Reorganization of this tablespace is not supported.

Can successfully run reorganize against a locally managed tablespace, created newly in the 10g database.


Upgraded database from 8.1.5 to 8.1.7 and then to 11G
