Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 126.96.36.199 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Sql statements may return wrong results when Country specific NLS patches are Installed on the database server
(like patch 10019002, 10427365, 12574386) and query is offloaded to the storage cell (Exadata).
Wrong results may specially been seen when string functions like UPPER, LOWER are used. For example:
Running with CELL_OFFLOAD_PROCESSING=TRUE (statement is offloaded):
Correct Result is 215 rows.
Country specific NLS patches are installed at database side. (like patch 10019002, 10427365, 12574386)
