I have a system at work that imports data from the old system to our new system. Given that the new system is very object oriented, performing a straight conversion is not really possible. As such, we have this importer system.
During the imp0rt, I ran into a very strange problem. While trying to fill a dataset from Oracle, we get the error:
ORA-25408: can not safely replay call
Weird. Time for some research…
It looks like the ORA-25408 error has to do with some sort of “failover” event at the server. It seems highly unlikely that this is actually what I’m running into. However, I do know that our connection to the server farm is sketchy.
I updated the system with a Try/Catch block. Now, if the dataset fails to fill, the system will sleep for 1 second and try again. If it continues to fail, I’ll have to look into it further.
