Export (EXP) or Datapump export (EXPDP) can fail when trying to call the LT_EXPORT_PKG package. Errors reported include (but are not limited to):
- ORA-06550 and PLS-00201
- ORA-04063 and ORA-06508
- ORA-39127
- ORA-01031
- ORA-01422
- ORA-01775
- ORA-00942
- ORA-04067 and ORFA-06508

The LT_EXPORT_PKG package is part of the Oracle Workspace Manager (OWM). In releases up to and including this component is located in the SYS schema. As of the patchset level, it has been moved to the WMSYS schema.

If installed, OWM is necessary for proper operation of the export utilities (both EXP and EXPDP) in order to check whether versioning support is necessary when exporting the database objects. As such OWM must be in a valid state. If OWM is not needed in the database, then it should be completely deinstalled.

The goal of this document is to describe what common problems are when EXP or EXPDP cannot properly access the LT_EXPORT_PKG package.

The SQL statements outlined in this document all assume that SQL*Plus has been started and the DBA is connected using:
