Question: I am doing a distributed
update and I get this ORA-24756 error:
DISTRIB TRAN bea1.67AA54355C4A74ECDEE0
is local tran 6.42.332492 (hex=06.2a.512cc)
insert pending prepared tran, scn=8151148567799

Errors in file /oradata/sfapdb/bdump/sfapdb_reco_2739.trc:
ORA-24756: transaction does not exist
I also found out there are some records (trans_id =
"6.42.332492") in SYS.PENDING_TRANS$/ SYS.PENDING_SESSION$/dba_2pc_pending
with "prepare" status. This transaction is launched from a
Weblogic Server via JDBC. How do I resolve this
this does not always happen and it is sporadic, it may not
be a bug, most likely a network error.
There are many bugs associated with the ORA-44756
error, and there is always the likelihood that the root
cause of the error was due to a network failure.
The oerr utility shows this for the ORA-24756 error:
transaction does not exist
Cause: An invalid
transaction identifier or context was used or the
transaction has completed.
Action: Supply a
valid identifier if the transaction has not completed and
retry the call
This error is from a failed
two-phase commit. When Oracle makes a distributed
update, he updates BOTH databases before committing the
When you lose connectivity between distributed updates
you get entries in the dba_2pc_pending table.
