ORA-39001: invalid argument value

I got ” ORA-39001: invalid argument value ”  error in Oracle database.


ORA-39001: invalid argument value


Details of error are as follows.

ORA-39001: invalid argument value
ORA-39000: bad dump file specification
ORA-31640: unable to open dump file "<FILE PATH>EXPORT.dmp" for read
ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status
Linux-x86_64 Error: 2: No such file or directory
Additional information: 3
The parameters used are:




invalid argument value

This ORA-39001 error is related to the invalid argument value


DataPump export with parameters:



was successful:


Master table “EXPORT”.”SYS_EXPORT_SCHEMA_01″ successfully loaded/unloaded
Dump file set for EXPORT.SYS_EXPORT_SCHEMA_01 is:
Job “EXPORT”.”SYS_EXPORT_SCHEMA_01″ successfully completed at 20:41:12
At first glance, this appears to be an exact match to the note 784566.1 How to Prevent ORA-39000 ORA-31640 ORA-27037 Errors When Performing Data Pump Export/Import

If you have already read that note, tried the solution and are still getting the errors, then the problem may be with the actual export.dmp file.

In this case, as you can see from the export par file and import par file the name of the export dump is not the same:


Once the import parameter was changed to DUMPFILE=EXPORT.DMP the import completes successfully.
