Re: WHAT IS ORA 1591 ERROR IN ORACLE 8.1.7.3

Hi Paresh,

ORA-1591 ERROR with LOCK ON THE TABLE....
Reason for the error could be :- An attempt was made to access a resource locked by a dead two-phase commit transaction that is in prepared state.

Action: Match the transaction number in the message with the GLOBAL_TRAN_ID column of the DBA_2PC_PENDING table to determine the database link and the state of the transaction. Attempt to repair network connections to the coordinator and commit point, if necessary. If timely repair is not possible, contact the database administrator at the commit point, if known, to resolve the pending transaction.

This is what is mentioned in Oracle8i Distributed Database Systems, Chapter 5 "Managing Distributed Transactions"

Specifying the Lock Timeout Interval

When you issue a SQL statement, Oracle8i attempts to lock the resources needed to successfully execute the statement. If the requested data is currently held by statements of other uncommitted transactions, however, and remains locked for a long time, a timeout occurs.

Consider the following scenarios involving data access failure:

Transaction Timeouts

Locks From In-Doubt Transactions


I hope thsi helps.
