Symptoms

The example below is based on the directory object my_dir that refers to an existing directory on the server where the Oracle RDBMS is installed. Example:

CONNECT system/password
CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY my_dir AS '<PATH>';
GRANT read, write ON DIRECTORY my_dir TO public;


A schema that owns object types needs to be duplicated from schema U1 to schema U2 in the same database. Example:

CONNECT system/password
CREATE USER u1 IDENTIFIED BY u1 DEFAULT TABLESPACE users;
CREATE USER u2 IDENTIFIED BY u2 DEFAULT TABLESPACE users;
ALTER USER u1 QUOTA UNLIMITED ON users;
ALTER USER u2 QUOTA UNLIMITED ON users;
GRANT create session, create table, create type TO u1;
GRANT create session, create table, create type TO u2;
CONNECT u1/u1
CREATE TYPE my_coltype AS OBJECT (nr NUMBER, txt VARCHAR2(10))
/
CREATE TYPE my_tabtype AS OBJECT (nr NUMBER, txt VARCHAR2(10))
/
CREATE TABLE my_reltab (nr NUMBER, col1 my_coltype);
CREATE TABLE my_objtab OF my_tabtype;
INSERT INTO my_reltab VALUES (1, my_coltype(1, 'Line 1'));
INSERT INTO my_objtab VALUES (1, 'Line 1');
COMMIT;


The schema U1 can be exported successfully. E.g.:

expdp system/password DIRECTORY=my_dir DUMPFILE=expdp_u1.dmp LOGFILE=expdp_u1.log SCHEMAS=u1


The import into schema U2 fails though with the following errors:

impdp system/password DIRECTORY=my_dir DUMPFILE=expdp_u1.dmp LOGFILE=impdp_u1.log 
REMAP_SCHEMA=u1:u2
...
