Oracle Text Release Mandatory Patches

(Doc ID 1608029.1)

Last updated on MAY 14, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Text - Version to [Release 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After upgrading to customers using Oracle Text could run into the following issues:

  1. An PLS-306 error can occur when attempting to delete rows from a table having text indexes which were created pre- release.

  2. You encounter a crash, ie ORA-600 [kdsgrp1] or ORA-600 [20084], while running Text queries.
    The ora-600 [kdsgrp1] means the query returned duplicate rowids, and the $R index table is corrupted because sync_index did not actually do its job.
    A good rule of thumb is that if any delete/update DMLs were performed on the base table, followed by a sync index operation, the $R table for the text index will be corrupted.
    However, inserts followed by sync_index are okay and will not corrupt the index $R table.
