Information command in SQLcl gives ORA-20005 error

Wouter BreeuwsmaApr 19 2016 — edited May 3 2016

Hi all,

I am investigating the new SQLcl tool with all the great features (version sqlcl-

When I try to get information from the employees table in the HR schema I get some errors. I have entered:

info hr.employees;

and get:

ORA-20005: ORU-10034: context argument must be 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7

ORA-06512: in "SYS.DBMS_UTILITY", regel 112

ORA-06512: in regel 1

This occurs on a 10g R2 EE database on a Virtual Box machine. I get the same error with SQL Developer

What can be the reason for this?

On a 11XE database it is working with SQL Developer

Regards, Wouter
