I was attempting to export from a Dev instance to a clean QA instance of 2013 SP1 with Content Porter 2013 SP1. Both instances are in matching environments concerning hardware/software and the QA blueprint matches the Dev instance.

Does anyone have a clue given the below stacktrace?

[Error] Tridion.ContentManager.DatabaseException: A database error occurred while executing Stored Procedure "EDA_PUBLICATIONS.READ_PUBLICATION". ---> Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleException: ORA-55714: savepoint 'READ_OLDDATA_WORKAROUND' disabled with interleaved changes across Oracle RAC instances

    At a glance, it's complaining about your RAC configuration. I'd open a support ticket for this - if you haven't already - and probably double check the RAC configuration.

  • Hello craftyCodeMonkey, Like Nuno points out it looks like a RAC configuration or a difference between Oracle DBs. Can you maybe tell us what you try to content port, every thing at once (schema, components, templates etc) or 1 publication at the time ? (Might be some dependencie that is causing the failure)

I was informed by SDL support that Oracle RAC configurations of Active-Active are not supported. We switched to a stand-alone instance for the CM and the problem was solved.
