ORA-30036 Tablespace Error When Enhanced Retro Pay (Doc ID 1932010.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 04, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (Netherlands) - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.1.3 version, Netherlands Payroll

While performing a regular Enhanced Retropay run.

Before the last payroll cycle, extended the table space from 60Gb to almost 90Gb. To solve the issue, need to retry several times the errored retropay process before can get rid of all the errors, but this delays a lot our payroll cycle.

"ORA-30036: unable to extend segment by 8 in undo tablespace 'APPS_XXXXX' "

Recently have been able to replicate the ORA-30036 error with only 180 assignment in retropay that needed a recalculation only from last year, so we believe the issue is not caused by the mass of assignment that have to be reprocessed. Moreover, we can see that the error is raised almost always during the execution of Dutch Legislation fast formulae related to Taxation (see attachment). Most of the time, the error in the concurrent logs points to the Flat Rate Taxation formula (NL_CALC_FLAT_RATE_TAX), but what puzzles us the most is that we are not using such kind of taxation, so we do not expect that formula to be executed at all.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Run the Dutch Enhanced Retropay process.
