This problem was observed on Oracle on a IBM AIX 64-bit server but may be applicable to other versions and platforms.
It occurred on a two node RAC database.

Following a platform migration one of two RAC instances failed with below error in the alert log:

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kclexpandlock_1], [449794], [], [], [], [], [], []
LMSu: terminating instance due to error 484
ORA-00484: LMS* process terminated with error
Termination issued to instance processes. Waiting for the processes to exit
Instance terminated by LMSu, pid = 473078

The call stack in the trace file includes functions like:

... kcbassertb1 kclexpandlock kjbmpocr kjmxmpm kjmpmsgi kjmsm ksbrdp opirip opidrv sou2o opimai_real main

Referenced object 449794 is an index (PK_INCOME_ACTIVITY) and is an IOT object:



The error is more likely to occur after a lot of DML on IOT tables. It is also more likely after performing a shrink operation on IOT tables.
