DBMS_REDEFINITION.COPY_TABLE_DEPENDENTS Generates Duplicate Index Names on Interim Table
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 04, 2014
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 220.127.116.11 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Source table has multiple indexes with very long names like "index_with_very_long_nm", "index_with_very_long_nm1", "index_with_very_long_nm2" that reside in more than one schema.
When trying to reorg such table with online DBMS_REDEFINITION, duplicate names are getting generated for some of the indexes on the interim table. Due to this, the desired number of indexes were not created.
For above two indexes (nm1, nm2), DBMS_REDEFINITION creates only one index with the name "tmp$$_index_with_very_long_2".
