Concurrent Managers Stopped Processing "ORACLE error 4068 in afpoload" and "ORA-04068: existing state of packages has been discarded" (Doc ID 2530280.1)

Last updated on JUNE 21, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Concurrent Processing - Version to 12.2.8 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Concurrent Managers stopped processing without a known reason.

Manager log shows: 

The name of the package "FND_PROFILE" may vary, but typically is FND_PROFILE or FND_DCP. 

 FND% objects (Packages) are invalidated, without any known user intervention, patching or otherwise. 


No known changes. This is the key to this issue. Something must have changed in the APPS schema in order to trigger cascading invalid objects in the FND% schema, but typically it appears to the Apps DBA that nothing was done.
