I have an Oracle 11g (188.8.131.52) Database running on Linux (x64). Within the database I have a schema and 33 tables for it (all in the same tablespace). When I log in via sqlplus I can list all the tables via
SELECT OBJECT_NAME FROM USER_OBJECTS WHERE OBJECT_TYPE = 'TABLE';
But when I export the Tablespace using
exp ... BUFFER=65536 FULL=N COMPRESS=N CONSISTENT=Y TABLESPACES=... FILE=...
Then it only exports 24 of the 33 tables. I have tried to export the missing tables via
exp ... TABLES=<missing_table> ...
But then I get an error:
EXP-00011: <schema>.<missing_table> does not exist
How can I find out what's wrong here?
How can I export all the tables?
After following Gary's advice I found the following difference between the exported and missing tables. DDL of an exported table:
CREATE TABLE "MY_SCHEMA"."EXPORTED_TABLE" ( ... ) TABLESPACE "MY_TS" PCTFREE 10 INITRANS 1 MAXTRANS 255 STORAGE ( INITIAL 64K BUFFER_POOL DEFAULT) LOGGING NOCOMPRESS
And now the DDL of a not exported table:
CREATE TABLE "MY_SCHEMA"."MISSING_TABLE" ( ... ) TABLESPACE "MY_TS" PCTFREE 10 INITRANS 1 MAXTRANS 255 STORAGE ( BUFFER_POOL DEFAULT) LOGGING NOCOMPRESS
The above DDLs were generated by the Enterprise Manager. The ones created with sqlplus contained no STORAGE section at all for the missing tables.
I found out that the tables get exported when I reorganize them and set the STORAGE INITIAL value to 64K.
Problem solved. (Hopefully ;))
