Symptoms

Getting ORA-02291: integrity constraint (%s.%s) violated - parent key not found

when importing with full=y constraints =n into a new database with no data.

Export was done with the conventional export using owner=owner_name and indexes=y parameters.

The above export will export only the indexes without the data.

 

Changes

Importing the dump file from the above export will import only indexes and result to the error since table references do not exist.
