This error is related to a scheduled DBMS_AUDIT_MGMT job named PURGE_ALL_AUDIT_TRAILS, owned by SYS.
This job is not customized; it is created by default at the time the database is created.
SELECT JOB_NAME, JOB_STATUS, AUDIT_TRAIL from DBA_AUDIT_MGMT_CLEANUP_JOBS; job_name job_status audit_trail -------------------- --------- -------------- PURGE_ALL_AUDIT_TRAILS ENABLED ALL_AUDIT_TRAILS
This error is thrown when DBMS_AUDIT_MGMT.INIT_CLEANUP has not been executed.
However, if the DB audit trail is not being used (AUDIT_TRAIL = NONE, and/or SYS.AUD$ has no rows), then the job is not necessary.
To solve this error, If database auditing is not in use, disable the job, as it is not needed.
Firstly Check the job owner:
SELECT JOB_NAME, STATE,owner from dba_scheduler_jobs;
Then If the owner is SYS, connect AS SYSDBA, then disable this job as follows.
