The "distributed transaction" error indicates that you have two separate Oracle database instances involved.  In this scenario, certain SQL and/or PL\SQL commands are not allowed.  One of these is the "SET TRANSACTION" command that is apparently in the "REFRESH" procedure of DBMS_SNAPSHOT.

It looks like this is a system design issue.  If you have two separate Oracle database instances, you have to limit yourself to those SQL and/or PL\SQL commands that are allowed in this environment

The Package Procedure exists for a long time now.So aim being asked to handle it from Powershell.

I found the rollbacksegment to cause that error,so checked with DBA and learnt that parameter no longer stands valid.
