Information in this document applies to any platform.


1. When trying to export schema with traditional export utility (EXP), the below error is received:

. exporting pre-schema procedural objects and actions
EXP-00008: ORACLE error 1647 encountered
ORA-01647: tablespace '<tablespace name>' is read only, cannot allocate space in it
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_RULE_EXP_RL_INTERNAL", line 324
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_RULE_EXP_RULES", line 147
ORA-06512: at line 1
EXP-00083: The previous problem occurred when calling SYS.DBMS_RULE_EXP_RULES.schema_info_exp
. exporting foreign function library names for user CCM_PRG
. exporting PUBLIC type synonyms

2. This behavior only occurs with traditional export only. Exporting the same schema with DataPump works fine without any errors.

3. This schema that reports errors contains ruleset.

4. After setting the event 10046 before running the export, the trace shows the following:
