Replicat abends with ERROR   OGG-00446  Checkpoint tabletable name” does not exist.  Please create the table or recreate the “replicat” group using the correct table.


The mgr process was started from a different Oracle instance then where the replicat was connected

Checkpoint table did not exist in that database




Verify the DB instance where the checkpoint table should exist, or not create it as follows.


ggsci>  add checkpointtable GGS_ADMIN19C.GGSCHKPT;



To create a new checkpoint table:

ggsci> dblogin userid "user id"  PASSWORD "password"

ggsci> add checkpointtable "checkpoint table name"

ggsci> info "replicat"  (Make a note of the trail file sequence number and RBA )

ggsci> delete "replicat"!

ggsci> add rep "replicat" , exttrail  "trail file"  extseqno ###, extrba ####, checkpointtable "checkpoint table name"  ( Use the extseqno and extrba from the INFO command)




If info replicat shows below information:

GGSCI> info repts2, showch

ggsci> add checkpointtable VLOGG.GGS_CHECKPOINT

ggsci> delete rep repts2 !

ggsci> add rep repts2, exttrail ./dirdat/t2 extseqno 004888, extrba 120750367, checkpointtable VLOGG.GGS_CHECKPOINT

ggsci> start rep repts2

ggsci> start rep "replicat"


To use checkpoint table on replicat DB instance:

Set ORACLE_SID and ORACLE_HOME environment variables



Recycle manager process


ggsci>stop mgr

ggsci> start mgr

ggsci> start rep "replicat"
