Customer was testing SSL connections with various operations. Everything seems to work well with the exception of distributed updates using a database link over SSL with certain types of data. In particular this example is sending a clob from one database to another. This is intermittently reproducible

SQL> insert into dchuha.clob_target@testdb10 (select text from dchuha.clob_source);
insert into dchuha.clob_target@testdb10 (select text from dchuha.clob_source)
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-02055: distributed update operation failed; rollback required
ORA-02068: following severe error from TESTDB10
ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel

SQL> rollback;

Rollback complete.

SQL> quit

Note that this operation never fails if going over a non-SSL connection.


Recently configured TCPS(SSL) communication for database.
