Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

You may see sometimes Oracle logging error ORA-12805 either in the alert log file or RDBMS background process job trace (j00n) for the Advanced Replication push call (DBMS_DEFER_SYS.PUSH).

Alert log will show something like this:

Thu Jun 17 08:51:14 2010
Errors in file <path>/<sid>_j000_19461.trc:
ORA-12805: parallel query server died unexpectedly
Errors in file <path>/<sid>_j000_19461.trc:

ORA-12012: error on auto execute of job 23
ORA-12805: parallel query server died unexpectedly
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_DEFER_SYS", line 1717
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_DEFER_SYS", line 1805
ORA-06512: at line 1

While j00n trace will have something similar to this:

----- Error Stack Dump -----

Changes

No changes, only the fact of using Advanced Replication push job feature might trigger the ORA-12805.
