ORA-10635: Invalid Segment or Tablespace Type Error When Attempting To Shrink SOA-INFRA LOB [To Free Tablespace] (Doc ID 2382484.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 06, 2020

Applies to:

SOA Suite Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Though the SOAINFRA schema is purging correctly, LOB(s) are occupying tablespace which needs to be released.

To shrink the large LOB, normally you would use this command:

     ALTER TABLE <dbuser.table_name> MODIFY LOB(<lob_column>) (shrink space);

This leads to this error:

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-10635: Invalid segment or tablespace type

What could the problem be?
