In addition, before you run the tool, you need to stop Oracle database jobs. See Stopping Oracle database jobs in this article for the steps to stopping the database jobs.
Stopping Oracle database jobs
If your database has scheduled jobs, you must unschedule them and clear the jobs queue before you run the Update Readiness tool and start the migration process. After the jobs are unscheduled and the jobs queue is clear, you can run the URT and continue your migration.
To unschedule jobs:
Log in to SQL*Plus using the Symantec Data Loss Prevention database user name and password.
Run the following:
BEGIN FOR rec IN (SELECT * FROM user_jobs) LOOP dbms_job.broken( rec.job, true); dbms_job.remove( rec.job); END LOOP; END; /
Verify all jobs are unscheduled by running the following:
Select count(*) from user_jobs;
Confirm that the count is zero. If the count isn’t zero, run the command to clear the queue again; if a job is running when you attempt to clear the queue, the job will continue to run to completion and will not be cleared. For long running jobs, Symantec recommends that you wait for the job to complete instead of terminating the job.
