Additional Information

Duplicate of NIM035228: See the KB article The restored GDB provided by the customer was created Pre 9.2, upgraded later and contains a oracle generated type oid instead of default 'A618FA8DD1D84E13B35784E171530100'. The data was created using an antiquated st_geometry type. Upgrade does not (cannot) address this issue. There is no way to alter type set OID. This issue was addressed at 9.2 SP6/9.3. So, the only possible workaround to fix the data is: On a clean Oracle instance: - perform a fresh install of the SDE.ST_GEOMETRY type (enable or create GDB) with a current release of the software. - copy/paste the data from this instance using ArcGIS Desktop.
