I'm trying to import a dump file with the command below:

impdp system/password dumpfile=mw0sd1.dmp keep_master=Y

But it returns following error:

ORA-39002: invalid operation
ORA-39059: dump file set is incomplete
ORA-39246: cannot locate master table within provided dump files

I've been checked logfile and didn't found any error for master table.

Master Table:

Master table "SYS"."SYS_EXPORT_SCHEMA_02" successfully loaded/unloaded
    Dump file set for SYS.SYS_EXPORT_SCHEMA_02 is:

I'll appreciate so much If anyone could help me to solve this question ASAP. Already exported this database 2 times for make sure that is not an export problem.


  • What was the expdp command that was used? – Michael Kutz Mar 15 '18 at 15:25

    Run impdp with trace=1ff0300 and post the trace file that was created. So far all I can tell is your dumpfile is corrupted. – Balazs Papp Mar 15 '18 at 15:48
