Error: Underlying DBMS error (-51).
Error: Cannot Create Layer.
ORA-20020: Table TOMB.SPATIAL_VIEW.shape has multiple SRID's defined to different geometries.

Cause

The error results when registering a table with ArcSDE if multiple geometries are present with different SRID values or if there are geometries with the same SRID value and NULL geometries.

Solution or Workaround

Either update the existing geometries to use the same SRID value, or remove the rows from the table that have NULL geometries.
