Unable to Delete OID 10g Index Using Catalog.sh if Attribute Does Not Exist: Attribute <attribute>' doesn't exist. (Doc ID 1448844.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.4.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

- Slow performance from applications searching many attributes within OID
- Oiddiag output reporting missing indexes

Example:
ODS tables with missing indexes:
CT_MYCUSTOMATT

The Indexes which are missing:
...
ST_MYCUSTOMATT
VA_MYCUSTOMATT


- Any attempt to add/delete the attribute using catalog.sh results in error

Example:
catalog connect=orcl add="TRUE" attribute="mycustomatt"
This tool can only be executed if you know database user password for OID
Enter OID Password ::

------------------------------------------------------------
Attribute 'mycustomatt' doesn't exist.
------------------------------------------------------------

 

Changes

Attribute that was once existing in OID as an indexed attribute no long exists within the schema.

The attribute was dropped, but index was not.
