Oracle10g Import DataPump fails to transport a tablespace back into a database. The output in the log file shows:


1. You recently upgraded the database to Oracle10g, Release 1, 10.1.0.x.0 and are using Export DataPump and Import DataPump.
2. You recently created an object owned by SYS in the tablespace that is transported, and dropped that object. Instead of SYS, the dropped object could also have been owned by ORDSYS, MDSYS, CTXSYS, ORDPLUGINS, LBACSYS, XDB, SI_INFORMTN_SCHEMA, DIP, DMSYS, or DBSNMP (these are non-exportable users).
