Error message U0003590 UCUDB - DB error: 'OCIStmtExecute', 'ERROR ', '', 'ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kdlwdb:objdchk_kcbnew_3], [0], [22722], [1], [4], [8], [], [], [], [], [], []' occur.

That looks strange to me ...

and we said ...

Definition of an ORA-00600 error from the Oracle documentation:

Error: ORA 00600
Text: internal error code, arguments: [%s], [%s], [%s], [%s], [%s], [%s], [%s]

Cause: This is the generic internal error number for Oracle program exceptions. This indicates that a process has encountered a low-level, unexpected condition

Action: Report this error to Oracle Support Services

Note: The cause of this message may manifest itself as different errors at different times. Be aware of the history of errors that occurred before this internal error.


An error handling has been fixed in Automation Engine 11.1.5, 11.2.3 and higher, where ORA-00600 (internal error code) has not been recognized by the automation engine (AE) as database error which led to a forced trace. Now ORA-00600 will be checked and transaction will be repeated after this oracle error.


For Automic Engine (AE) versions lower that versions above check out the section below:

To trigger an exception handling for ORA-00600 you need to modify the file UC.MSL in the Automation Engine folder:

1.       open the file with an editor like notepad++
2.       search for the number 3555
3.       go to line 1318
4.       fill '600' after the number 470
5.       do the same in line 1319 and 1320
6.       save & close the file
7.       restart all CP's / WP's
8.       monitor the system

After this change a process which ORA-00600 will be checked and transaction will be repeated after this oracle error.
