unable to modify database


i'm unable to perform the following operations:

unarchive a repository

create a new repository

create a new repository from schema

i'm getting the error "unable to modify database".

I have tried restarting the MDM server but the problem persists.

This problem has never occured before. Has someone faced this issue before? if yes then could you kindly provide the cause and resolution?

I'm on SP05 patch2 HF1 (build MDM is running on Oracle.

Thanks in advance

Hi Swana,

<Unable to Modify Datbase>

This error occurs due to a problem with the database on which MDM server is seated.

You can try one of these options to correct this problem:

- Check the oracle data base Listener configuration

- Stop and start the oracle service from the system on which it is installed.


- After doing this stop and start the MDM service.

- Then try performing the above activities.

It should work.I had faced the similar error.

Hope it helps
