Ora-38301 When Doing DDL on Object Outside of Recyclebin (Doc ID 352842.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2019

Applies to:

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


In a multiple node RAC db, we drop a table from one node. We then recreate the table and drop it
again and receive the following:

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-38301: cannot perform DDL/DML over objects in Recycle Bin

The issue can be verified by:

  - List the contents of the Recyclebin

  - Setting a 10046 trace and seeing the dropping an object with the same Original_Name listed in the Recyclebin contents will result in the ORA-38301 error.
