RE: Drop user fails with ORA-01418

Chadi Kassan


Actually, this is my problem. I couldn't drop some objects in the user, so i
decided to rebuild the user and still stuck with this:

the trace is shwoning that some trigger is causing the ora600:

ksedmp: internal or fatal error
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [15239], [], [], [], [], [], [],
Current SQL statement for this session:
drop trigger "CHADI"."BIN$5/+ZaDjf/yjgMIEKQwE88g==$0"

Did the user get dropped?

If not, can you go through and drop the users objects manually? And then
drop the user? It is obviously an Oracle problem. But if you can find a
workaround, then you can chalk it up to experience.

Personally, I do not drop a user that has a bunch of objects. I prefer to
drop all the objects first and then the user just for this reason.

Hope this helps.

Subject: Drop user fails with ORA-01418

Hi everyone,

I'm pretty sure, many had run into this problem before and can provide some
help. When I try to drop one of my user, I get the following:

SQL> drop user theuser cascade;

ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1
ORA-01418: specified index does not exist

What index it's talking about, metalink says this is related to some data
corruption in data dictionnary, but doesn't provide a solution.

We run Oracle Database 10g Release on Linux.

Thank you.
