Recycle Bin Issue

Article by Rampant Author Brian Carr

Recently my nightly OLAP build kept failing with the error message "ORA-38301: can not perform DDL/DML over objects in Recycle Bin".

I encountered this problem when I dropped a table with the following command: drop table buying_group;

The drop happened fine, but then when I try to recreate the table I get the following error:
ERROR at line 1: ORA-38301: can not perform DDL/DML over objects in Recycle Bin

I don't remember telling this table to go to the Recycle Bin? I told the database to straight drop it.

This issue obviously involved the recycle bin, so in order to get my nightly build to work purged my recycle bin. To do this I issued the following command on my RAC database: purge dba_recyclebin; as user sys.

I did this on both instances of the rac. My next step is to search Metalink and see if there is a patch for this issue.
