    ORA-06553: PLS-707 occurs on log on via SQLPLUS

    Hi there - just to clarify my note - (a colleuge pointed out that is was a bit unclear - apologies)

    I apply the patchset using a ms-dos batch file to copy dll's , syms, plb's ect to the oracle home - the second part of the patch specifies that catalog, prvtexp, utlgdk need to be run on the database

    I did not get that far as to run the catalog and prvtexp scripts which was provided by the patch - the copying over of the new files (provided via the patchset) was not successfull !!!!

    So I replaced all copied files (dll's , syms, plbs, and sql) with the original ones.

    The odd thing is that I didn't run any scripts - just did a file copy.

    and now the error is occurring .......

    Grateful for any advice

    Hi all,

    I recently had to apply an Oracle patch (patchset 3820881) to 3 Oracle Instances ( instances reside on the same server and use the same oracle home).

    During the copying over of the patch files - the following files were not copied over due to a process using them:

    Before I copied the files provided with the patchset I created backups of the existing files - when I couldn't locate the process I copied the original files back. I did not run any scripts e.g (catexp, catalog or catproc ).
    I have since located the process that was monitoring/accessing them.

    However, the following error is encountered when I log in via a sqlplus session to 1 of the databases:

    ORA-06553: PLS-707: unsupported construct or internal error [2603]

    ORA-06553: PLS-707: unsupported construct or internal error [2603]

    Error accessing package DBMS_APPLICATION_INFO[SIZE=1]"

    The error does not occur on the other databases!!!!

    I went onto metalink which suggested that catalog and catproc be run.
    I ran catalog and catproc - however none of the sys.packages are compiled and cannot be compiled via TOAD or Enterprise manager the following error occurs: (when I try compiling them)
    "ORA-04045: errors during recompilation/revalidation of SYS.ALL_OBJECTS
    ORA-00904: invalid column name"

    I did a search on this forum and a reply to a similar issue was to run catproc.sql, catalog.sql and dbmsstdx.sql (I checked and this recreates the standard package). However the situation involved relocating a database from one platform to another one -

    Is this still applicable to my situation even though no platform changes have occured (I mean no disrespect , I am just really nervous as I am just starting out as a dba and have no experience and I want to be sure before I go ahead and run anything that I am doing the right thing)

    Grateful if anyone can advise any further action I can take .. any advice would be highly appreciated

    Turns out that the database wasn't properly upgraded from 8.1.6 .. in the first place and no one checks the database so I was the lucky one who did because of the patch install

    The appropriate scripts have been run and the error is gone
