(Doc ID 2315818.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 23, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

If MAX_PDBS=1, and a PDB is created and dropped, then it is not possible to recreate this PDB unless MAX_PDBS parameter is increased to 2. It is because the recreated PDB gets con_id=4 and not con_id=3.
