Troubleshooting DRG-11207 Indexing Errors (Doc ID 210319.1)

Last updated on MARCH 31, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Text - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Most of the errors encountered during creation of Oracle Text indexes are likely to be caused when dealing with formatted documents.
These errors are logged in the view CTX_USER_INDEX_ERRORS and can be queried from the schema where the create index statement
was executed, or table CTX_INDEX_ERRORS queried from the CTXSYS user.
One of the errors commonly  reported in these views is the DRG-11207 error.

Unfortunately, this error is often not useful in diagnosing indexing issues.
The AUTO_FILTER issues are difficult to diagnose because Oracle Text uses Oracle Outside in HTML Export (OIT) filtering technology for filtering. As a result, it is often difficult to identify the real source of the problem.
This document will troubleshoot the INSO_FILTER/AUTO_FILTER errors associated with the "DRG-11207 "exited with status X" message.

In regards to the AUTO_FILTER, the error code implies that it is unable to index a formatted document.
It is important to mention that these errors can be operating system specific and therefore this note is intended to provide some hints as a starting point for analysis.
Its possible that other cases may be reported and if this is the case be sure to log the error with Oracle Support.
Examples of the most common document types are provided in this article (Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel).
