    Upgrade Express: "ORA-39002: invalid operation, ORA-39070 ... [etc.]"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    I get the following errors for each of the libraries in the Export customer data step.

    They can be seen in /exlibris/aleph/upgrade_express_1901_2001/logs/log/create_customer_data.log:

    ORA-39002: invalid operation
    ORA-39070: Unable to open the log file.
    ORA-29283: invalid file operation
    ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_FILE", line 488
    ORA-29283: invalid file operation


    1. Change the write permissions of directory dpdir

    chmod 777 /exlibris/aleph/upgrade_express_1901_2001/data/a18_1/abc10/files/dpdir

    alternately do the following
    1. Delete the existing dpdir directories from df1 of all libraries

    2. Rerun the export

    Additional Information

    See also, Article 000003484 {"Oracle Data Pump doesn't work in UE Create Customer Data step (or otherwise)"} ( )

    To test the export of just a single library:
    dlib abc10
