UDE-00013: Internal Expdp Error. (Doc ID 2035175.1)

Last updated on JUNE 15, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Running expdp fails like:

$ expdp file=ndx.dmp directory=DATA_PUMP_DIR tablespaces=FDB_DAT
UDE-00013: internal expdp error.

 
The error could point to to permission issues as for instance documented in:
<Note 752482.1> - User Not Belonging To DBA Group Is Unable To Run DataPump Expdp Or Impdp And Receives Errors UDE-13 UDE-19

However, the expdp and oracle permissions look correct:

$ ls -al expdp
-rwxr-x--x    1 oracle   dba        49073909 Jun 06 2014  expdp

$ ls -al oracle
-rwsr-s--x    1 oracle   dba       309668542 Jul 30 2014  oracle
