Last updated on FEBRUARY 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.1 to 10.2.0.4 [Release 10.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The following error can occur when creating a materialized view, where the FAST REFRESH option is chosen, and the Master Table is located on a remote database.  Thus utilizing a dblink in the mview definition.

For example:

CREATE MATERIALIZED VIEW TEST_USER.testfz
BUILD IMMEDIATE
REFRESH FAST
WITH PRIMARY KEY
AS
select * from testmv.testfz@allt2212.muc.cdd.de;
*
ERROR at line 9:
ORA-12028: materialized view type is not supported by master site @ALLT2212.MUC.CDD.DE

Changes

No changes as such.  The issue only occurs for non local mviews (Master table on a remote database) where a Database Link is used in the mview definition.
