    can not drop user

    Hi,

    When I run the following command I got the ORA-21700 error:

    SQL> drop user test1 cascade;
    drop user test1 cascade
    *
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1
    ORA-21700: object does not exist or is marked for delete

    How can I drop the user?

    just found out the reason the drop user fails is that there is a type in that schema that can't be dropped:

    SQL> drop type TEST1.SYS_PLSQL_834664_189_2;
    drop type TEST1.SYS_PLSQL_834664_189_2
    *
    ERROR at line 1:

    i would guess some sort of system table corruption.. can you enable trace and post the trace file (with sys option = yes)
