In order to check an object like SYS.I_OBJ1, you are using DBV with an additional parameter SEGMENT_ID and this fails like in the following example:

% sqlplus / as sysdba
SQL> select t.ts#, s.header_file, s.header_block, t.name ,s.owner, s.segment_name
  from v$tablespace t, dba_segments s
  where t.name='SYSTEM'
  and s.owner='SYS'
  and s.segment_name='I_OBJ1'
  and t.name = s.tablespace_name;

---------- ----------- ------------ -------------------------- -------------- ---------- --------------------------------------------------------------------
        0           1          336                                          SYSTEM     SYS         I_OBJ1

% dbv USERID=user/password SEGMENT_ID=0.1.336
