DMP file import issue

I am using oracle 10g. I am trying to import a DMP file and at the load message it shows scott.SYS_IMPORT_SCHEMA_01 is loaded. But I am not able to find that table in SQLDeveloper or query in it SQLPlus. When I query a select statement from that table it says "Table or view doesn not exist". Please help with any ideas or thoughts.

Scott in most cases is a test Oracle schema.

So the correct way to access the tables of 'scott' will be:

SQL>connect scott/tiger@alias
SQL> SELECT * FROM user_tables;

Now you will see all tables of the scott schema.

If I mistaken your question, then see the Import log. It will display you which tables are imported and if there are errors.

That is how I was initially connected. And I can see only sample tables.
Please help.

SQL>scott/tiger@alias
SQL> select table_name from user_tables;

>>scott.SYS_IMPORT_SCHEMA_01 is loaded.

Did it not say: Job scott.SYS_IMPORT_SCHEMA_01 completed?

I believe that SYS_IMPORT_SCHEMA_01 is the datapump job name.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Yes. This is the line,

Job "SCOTT"."SYS_IMPORT_SCHEMA_01" completed with 1359 error(s) at 11:04:02.

Even with errors previously I saw the table SYS_IMPORT_SCHEMA_01 creating under my connection. Every time I run it I see the table, I drop the table and run it again. Now after a while it had stopped creating in the fist place. This happens with the SYS user as well. Please help.
Thanks.

But what about the previous times when I actually saw those tables?

Say if it is cleanup but technically where should I find the table after import succeeds?

Thanks.

Just for fun, let's alter the first advice 37729895, and ensure the import worked for schemas other than SCOTT.  Try:

SELECT owner, table_name FROM sys.all_tables
ORDER BY 1,2

>>technically where should I find the table after import succeeds?

I'm not up on all aspects of datapump but it might create some working tables while it is running.  I do know it creates a database job.

The SCOTT schema out of the box does not come with a table called SYS_IMPORT_SCHEMA_01.  If you didn't create it, I would not expect it to be there after the import completes.


Check the docs:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B25329_01/doc/admin.102/b25107/impexp.htm

Nowhere in the list does it say it is importing a talbe called SYS_IMPORT_SCHEMA_01.

Yes maybe it was a temporary table which cleared out after the job. I tried the import one more time but now I didn't see any temporary table creating on that name.

Anyways if the import succeeds I should find the table under by connection with
scott/tiger-->tables right?

Just the four sample tables OWNED by SCOTT, not any others.  See my above query.

For SCOTT's objects yes.  An import might have objects from other schemas.  It all depends on how it was exported.

ASKER
Hmm thanks. I will get back if I have more questions.
schwertner

you have to post how you invoke the import.
The user you use for connection, what kind of import is it (schema, table)
Without these details is  a hard task to guess what has happened.

>>Without these details is  a hard task to guess what has happened.

I believe everything has been resolved.

In the original question : "at the load message it shows scott.SYS_IMPORT_SCHEMA_01"

That is the job completed message.  This was suggested in htttp:#a37729993 and confirmed in http:#a37730019

Then there was a secondary question about an actual table seen while impdp was running but not after.  This was resolved in http:#a37730104

Okay here is another issue I am facing. I am trying to import a DMP file into a NEW database which as no grants,users etc that are present in the export file. All I need is data and I don't care about users,grants,sequences etc.

Below is a simple import statement which I used,

IMPDP scott/********@alias directory=TEST_DIR dumpfile=godirectBackup.dmp content=all schemas=GODIRECT logfile=imp3.log ( refer to imp-5193errors log)

But after looking at the errors, I tried to exclude certain things from the import and then the errors reduced.

IMPDP scott/********@alias dumpfile=godirectBackup.dmp table_exists_action=replace schemas=godirect directory=TEST_DIR exclude=grant,user,sequence,view,role_grant,default_role,tablespace_quota logfile=mylog.log ( refer imp-1358errors log)

Even when I don’t add “exclude=tablespace” in the import statement it has the same errors as 1358 file. Now I think all the errors are pointing to godirect tablespace and the other errors are dependent on it.

Should I create a tablespace manually? Or please help me proceed. Thanks.
