Source database ( captures DDLs that may need to be skipped in the form of:

alter index "owner"."table_name" modify partition "AOT_PART_201508" shrink space CHECK


Thus apply will fail with:

ORA-10655: Segment can be shrunk
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_APPLY_ERROR", line 147
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_APPLY_ERROR", line 261
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_APPLY_ADM", line 468

The issue is similar to the one discussed on Doc ID 18193833.8, where the same error happens for an ALTER TABLE command, here the problem is with the ALTER INDEX command instead.


 Implemented ALTER INDEX command on source to shrink partition space.
