Checking compression information on a table created with advanced compression enabled (compress for all operations), which is available only from 11g onwards, Grid Control just reports compression as pre-11g (compress for direct load).

Such behavior is reported in Enterprise Manager Grid Control (EMGC), which is supposed to be able to manage 11g databases and advanced compression.

Testcase to reproduce this behavior

* Create a compress-for-all-operations table. That step can be done at EMGC or in SQLPlus:

Checking the table information, we can see that the OMS shows:
Compression Enabled on direct-path INSERT operations only


Even after installing patches suggested in note 953846.1, still seeing "wrong" compress info for table.
