Activation worked on demo table but failed with real config due to the following error:

It may not have enough disk space for the tablespace where shareplex_rowidmap resides or resource is busy and shareplex can not lock the table for analyzing row-chaining.
For database on 9i/10g, this issue can be resolved by enabling supplemental logging so that shareplex activation will skip analyzing row-chaining and reduce activation time.
Perform the following steps:
ALTER DATABASE ADD SUPPLEMENTAL LOG DATA
ALTER SYSTEM SWITCH LOGFILE
Then activate config again
sp_ctrl > activate config config_name
See solution 737 as well if you are on 8i database.
