SharePlex® 10.2

Release Notes

Revision: 5/6/2024


About SharePlex

SharePlex provides high-speed replication from Oracle database to different target databases and messaging containers on major Unix, Linux and Windows operating systems— both on-premises and in the cloud. SharePlex supports a wide variety of configurations to meet different and complex data availability needs.

SharePlex supports reliable Oracle high availability configurations where replication maintains a duplicate database in a different location that is ready for fast, seamless failover and failback in planned or unplanned mode.

You can also use SharePlex to replicate data from Oracle source to maintain a change history database in an Oracle target. Rather than updating or deleting target rows based on the source change, SharePlex inserts a new row on the target for every source change. The result is an archive that reflects the chronological history of every change made to the source database.

SharePlex also includes, at no extra charge, the compare and repair tools that you need to verify the accuracy of a target maintained by replication. These tools not only detect hidden out-of-sync conditions, but they also repair the target to restore parity of your source and target data.

SharePlex value and versatility continues to grow with the requirements and requests of our customers. Although SharePlex is a reliable, relatively low-maintenance solution, our top-rated support team is ready around the clock to help with any trouble you may have. To get you started with your deployment, our professional services team is highly experienced and readily available.

Database Support. This release of SharePlex includes support for the following database versions:

  • Oracle 19c on Linux. This release includes support for capture from and replication to Oracle 19c on Linux platforms.

NOTE: 9.4.0 is a Linux only release. To properly replicate from SharePlex 9.4.0 capture (source) to a non-9.4.0 target, set the SP_SYS_TARGET_COMPATIBLITY. See Interoperability between versions for how to use and set this parameter.

NOTE: OLTP compression is not supported by SharePlex for replication of objects using DML operations in Oracle 18c and 19c. This limitation applies to objects in the source database.

New Features for Oracle Source

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Compute Virtual Machine is now supported as a target.

Support for Extended Data Types. SharePlex now supports the Extended Data Type sizes introduced in Oracle 12c. The following maximum sizes are now supported for the following data types in Oracle to Oracle replication:

  • VARCHAR2 up to 32767 bytes
  • NVARCHAR2 up to 32767 bytes
  • RAW up to 32767 bytes

Note: The following limitations apply to support for Extended Data Types:

  • Extended Data Types are not supported for the copy command.
  • SharePlex does not support the Extended Data Type size on a key column.

Support for Invisible Columns. SharePlex now supports replication of a column that has been defined as invisible, a feature that was introduced in Oracle 12c. Invisible columns are supported in DML and DDL replication for Oracle source to Oracle target.

Improved Performance in the Post Process for CLOB Data. Enhancements designed to improve Post performance when posting CLOB data to Oracle have been implemented in this release. These improvements are applicable to CLOB or BLOB data with a maximum size less than 32768 bytes.

Support for Kerberos Authentication in Kafka. This release includes support for replication from Oracle to Kafka using Kerberos authentication.

Other New Features

Database Support. This release of SharePlex includes support for the following database versions:

  • Kafka 2.0.x and 2.1.0. This release includes support for replication to Kafka 2.0.x and 2.1.0 targets.

Use Provision to Change IP Address Only. The provision command includes a new option which allows you to change the IP address only.

  • To change the IP address only, use the following syntax:

    provision -o old_ipaddress-s new_ipaddress [-p port ] [-n]

New Parameters

New Open Target Post Process Parameter. The new parameter SP_OPX_ONELINE_DEBUG_COLUMNS controls whether or not column values are logged when SP_OPX_ONELINE_DEBUG is enabled. This is useful for diagnosing out-of sync conditions. To log column values for the objects specified when online debug is enabled, set SP_OPX_ONELINE_DEBUG_COLUMNS to 1.

New Compare Parameter. You can use the new SP_DEQ_THREAD_SELECT parameter to generate an additional thread to keep the TCP/IP connection alive while SharePlex selects the rows for comparison. The selection process runs in the child thread while the parent thread is used to keep the TCP/IP connection alive. This is useful for a table with a very large number of rows where the selection process can run for an extended period of time.

Disable Replication of Add Comment DDL. The new parameter SP_OCT_REPLICATE_COMMENT controls whether or not SharePlex replicates ALTER TABLE to ADD COMMENT and COMMENT ON operations on tables that are listed in the configuration file. To disable the replication of these operations, set this parameter to 0.

SharePlex 9.2.3 to 9.2.10

SharePlex 9.2.3, 9.2.4, 9.2.5, 9.2.6, 9.2.7, 9.2.8, 9.2.9, and 9.2.10 are the patch releases and includes resolved issues. See Resolved Issues and Enhancements for a complete list.

Operating System Support. This release includes support for SuSE SLES 15.


SharePlex installer packages for Linux/Unix. SharePlex installer packages for Linux/Unix are now database independent. You are no longer required to select an installer package based on the database for which SharePlex will be used (i.e., Oracle or Open Target). To install Quest® SharePlex™ or Open Target, simply select the installer package for your operating system.

The SharePlex installer packages now have a slightly different naming convention:


For Oracle Solaris (Sun), the operating system version is included:


SharePlex 9.2

SharePlex 9.2 is a minor release and includes the following new features and enhanced functionality.

New Features for Oracle Source

Oracle UROWID data type. Support has been added for the Oracle UROWID data type. This support applies to Oracle-to-Oracle configurations only.

Support for SCN metadata for HANA target. This release of SharePlex supports posting the Oracle SCN to a column in a HANA target table.

Oracle replication to MySQL 5.7. SharePlex supports replication from an Oracle source to a MySQL 5.7 target on-premises.

Oracle 12c R2 Support

Support for 128-byte table and column names. In Oracle capture, SharePlex now supports table and column names that are up to 128 bytes in length. Please note the following limitations applicable to this release.

  • UDT column names more than 30-bytes in length are not supported.
  • Type names for UDTs and VARRAYS with names more than 30-bytes in length are not supported.
  • IOT names more than 30-bytes in length are not supported.

Other New Features

Support for Windows Server 2016. Support for capture from and replication to databases on Microsoft Windows Server 2016.

Improved Performance in the Post Process.

The following enhancements were made to improve performance of the Post process.

  • Implemented multi-threading for SQL Server and PostgreSQL targets: The Transaction Concurrency component of Post Enhanced Performance has been extended to support SQL Server and PostgreSQL targets. A new parameter, SP_OPX_THREADS, controls this feature. When set to a value of 2 or greater, Post runs with the specified number of threads (concurrent operations).
  • Batch similar operations: To maximize its performance when applying SQL operations to the target, the Post process groups smaller replicated operations into one larger batched operation. Post groups replicated operations when the operations are identical and the SQL is similar. A new parameter, SP_OPX_BATCH_ENABLE, controls this feature and is enabled by default. Another new parameter, SP_OPX_MAX_BATCH_MBYTES, controls the maximum size of the batched DML operation that Post applies to the target. This supports databases, such as Teradata, that have a maximum transaction size and can be used for other purposes where batch size must be changed.

New jobs status database

  • This release includes a new jobs status database. This database resides in the data sub-directory of the SharePlex variable-data directory. The parameter SP_SYS_JOB_HISTORY_SIZE allows you to control the size of this database. Use this parameter to specify the maximum size (in kB) allowed for the database.

Simplified SharePlex Installation Process on Windows

  • When installing on Windows, you are no longer required to specify the Oracle database version or specify whether or not you are installing in a non-Oracle environment.
  • You no longer need to manually change the default setting for Global Resources memory in the MKS Toolkit after you install SharePlex on a Windows system. The setting is now modified automatically during installation.

Data Type Mapping

This release of SharePlex includes a new typemap command, as well as changes to the default data type mappings. Review the following details.

  • Use the typemap show command to display all default data type mappings. Use typemap show source-target to display the mapping for the specified source-target combination, for example oracle-sqlserver. See the SharePlex 9.2 Reference Guide for more information about using the typemap command.
  • Use the typemap command instead of the data type option of the target command. (The data type option of the target command has been discontinued in this release.)
  • For a list of supported data types, see Supported Data Types: Oracle to Open Targets or .

Other Changes in SharePlex

TLS 1.2 (or later) required for TLS connections. If you intend to use TLS connections in SharePlex, TLS 1.2 or later is required.

Resolved Issues and Enhancements

The following is a list of issues addressed and enhancements implemented in this release of SharePlex.

Note: All Resolved Issues and Enhancement from SharePlex 10.2 and older are included in this release.

NOTE: SharePlex 10.2 contains all of published bug fixes from 10.0 and older. Several issues addressed by one-off releases in 10.1.0, 10.1.1, and 10.1.2 were not accumulated in this release, but will be included in the upcoming release. For any queries related to upgrading from 10.1 or 10.1.1 or 10.1.2 to 10.1.3 or bug fixes or documentation, please contact Quest Technical Support.

Issue ID Description

The issue is observed while creating a new SharePlex user in Azure SQL DB from the mss_setup database setup utility.


When the "storage in row" clause is enabled on the source table, Poster stops with an error while replicating a large CLOB data from RDS System to MS SQL 2019.

SharePlex 10.1.0

Issue ID Description

While replicating the table that has the INTERVAL DAY TO SECOND Type columns, the compare/repair process fails for comparison with an Oracle hashing error.

Workaround: Enable the SP_DEQ_USE_SP_CKSUM parameter on both source and target database. (sp_ctrl> reset param SP_DEQ_USE_SP_CKSUM)


SharePlex displays an error when a user runs a provision command on the source database in the existing replication. This issue is observed when the queue name in the rim directory has the "RS" characters.

Workaround: Rename the queue names inside the rim directory such that it does not have the "RS" characters in it.

SPO-21513 SharePlex displays the "JSON columns not supported" warning when activating tables with a specific constraints, even when there are no JSON columns in the table that are added to activation.
SPO-21508 SharePlex replicates the Grant commands for the definition table to the target database even when the SP_OCT_REPLICATE_GRANT parameter is set to "0".
The issue is resolved by using the below workaround.
Workaround: Configure the SHAREPLEX_DDL_CONTROL table to exclude the replication for the grant command.
SPO-21342 SharePlex displays out of synchronized tables even after performing the repair operation. The issue is observed on the source and the target database, both.
SPO-21465 After performing an INSERT operation, the CDC table displays the INSERT BEFORE row twice instead of displaying two different rows, INSERT BEFORE and INSERT AFTER with the same value on the SHAREPLEX_SOURCE_OPERATION column. This issue is observed when the SP_OPO_TRACK_PREIMAGE parameter is set to I/U/D.

In Oracle database 19C , OLTP compressed data encountered NULL columns.

Oracle has introduced a new patch (32522300) that resolves the above OLTP compression related issues in Oracle 12c and 19c databases.

SPO-20440/ SPO-19931 SharePlex supports the data replication from Oracle to Kafka using the SASL plaintext authentication parameters. For more information, refer to SharePlex 10.1 Administrator Guide.
SPO-18517 SharePlex supports date formatting for all the open targets (such as JMS, file, Kafka) for the XML and JSON record formats.

SharePlex 10.0

Issue ID Description
SPO-20762 Fixed 'show export detail' statistics to be more accurate.
SPO-20453 Fixed table name greater than 30 characters not replicating in Windows 2019.
SPO-20452 Fixed copy issues where target database name contains a period.
SPO-20780 Fixed issue getting stale data capturing remotely where both SP_OCT_OLOG_USE_OCI and database ASYNC mode is enabled. Under this condition, when stale data is detected SharePlex will automatically force a log switch by issuing the ALTER SYSTEM SWITCH LOGFILE command and begin reading from the archive log until it is current. The workaround is automatic and no manual intervention is needed.

SharePlex 9.4

Issue ID Description
SPO-19998 Fixed overflow processing DLOADs from OLTP table
SPO-19920 Fixed Capture error using ASM disk with udev
SPO-19919 Fixed Capture error using ASM partition with AFD
SPO-19910 Fixed Post issues replicating compressed LOB data
SPO-19882 Fixed Post exits due after executing reconcile
SPO-18858 Fixed columns ignored when positioned after UDT column
SPO-18529 Fixed CLOB data not replication to XML & JSON

SharePlex 9.2.10

Issue ID Description
SPO-21181 Compare/Repair could report a false OOS. This issue is more likely to occur when comparing a single column table without keys.
SPO-21081 SharePlex is unable to compare the tables that are not in the active configuration file using the Compare Force option.
The issue is resolved now. The functionality of comparing data that is outside of the replication was removed from SharePlex 9.0 version onwards. However, now, we have added this functionality back into the product for the 9.2.10, 10.0.1, 10.1 versions.
NOTE: The limitation of comparing tables outside of replicated scheme still applies.
SPO-21076 The memory usage of the SharePlex capture process named "sp_ocap" started increasing after running for a month due to the allocation / de-allocation of the typecheck object.
SPO-21072 SharePlex poster stopped while replicating the data from the source database to the target database due to an invalid length in a column. The issue is observed in the CDC environment.
SPO-21058 SharePlex capture process stops due to an Oracle error whenever the RAC database is restarted. Users need to start the capture manually.
SPO-21054 SharePlex stopped while replicating the Oracle heap organized tables that are altered with the external tables after renaming the table name. The capture was discarding the external table as invalid. This issue was observed intermittently after upgrading from 8.1.6 to 9.2.6.
SPO-21050 SharePlex poster dumped core due to the column data set inappropriately in the key cache. This issue is observed only when the supplemental logging is not set on the source.
SPO-21047 SharePlex capture displayed a full disc space error on a NAS drive immediately after initiating the database replication process, even when there is enough space on the disc.
SPO-21042 Using non-ASCII characters as part of horizontal partitioning column conditions are not accepted via sp_ctrl. SharePlex reader process fails to evaluate such conditions. This issue exists for SharePlex versions 9.x up to 9.2.9.
Reader evaluation issue is now resolved if the below workaround for mentioned sp_ctrl issue is performed.
Workaround: Edit horizontal_partitioning.yaml file to input the non-ASCII characters since sp_ctrl rejects non-ASCII character input.
SPO-20946 SharePlex is unable to display before and after images for the deleted records/rows in the CDC environment even when the sp_opo_track_preimage D parameter for delete is set. This issue is observed after upgrading from SharePlex 9.1.4 to 9.2.8.
SPO-20942 SharePlex poster stopped while performing the cascading replication from source database to target database due to invalid columns and invalid objects in the cache. This issue is observed when bulk updates are being applied such as multiple table creation, peer-to-peer replication, and performing the DDL and DML activity.
SPO-20939 sp_utils does not display the license information for the SharePlex product in the license tab but the customer is able to fetch the license information using splex_get_key. This issue is specific to the windows operating system.
SPO-20931 SharePlex is giving reader core dump in a horizontally partitioned table.
SPO-20929 SharePlex poster dumps core when PEP tries to obtain a row ID for the NOP messages.
SPO-20921 SharePlex capture dumps core and gets memory corruption issue when handling Multi-Block Undo records for 12C or above version of the Oracle database.
SPO-20916 Tables get out of synchronization when a user tries to replicate a horizontally partitioned HP table without a primary key on a dependency check enabled setup. This issue is observed specifically after upgrading from the SharePlex 9.1.4 to 9.2.6 version even after a user performs the full repair.
SPO-20914 SharePlex reader displays an error when a table is dropped without a table name on the source database after updates are accumulated on the capture queue. This issue is observed intermittently while running an internal upgrade application process in the database after upgrading to SharePlex 9.2.7 on a database where PK/UK is not enabled. .
SPO-20911 In the peer-to-peer configuration, SharePlex is unable to replicate the updated information in a row from the source to the target database due to the conflict found in the target database. In the debug process, SharePlex is not able to find the pre-image record to resolve the conflict.
SPO-20780 SharePlex encounters stale blocks in the online log during data replication when the SharePlex was in the remote-connection capture mode.
The issue is resolved. When a stale block is detected a switch command is sent to Oracle to switch the log from online log to archive log and the capture reads the data from the archive log.
SPO-20663 SharePlex declines the transaction, which has only LMN records without any HRID value, with 'NULL HRID' warning message.
This issue is resolved now. SharePlex now declines the transaction without generating the 'NULL HRID' warning message.
SPO-20623 SharePlex capture process dumps core while trying to read an archive log from a perpetually down node on a RAC environment.
SPO-20330 While cross replicating the data from Oracle to the Windows SQL server, the SharePlex poster is performing the delete operation very slow on tables and most of the tables are displayed out of synchronized. Due to this, a heavy backlog is observed for a particular queue.
SPO-20012 SharePlex poster stopped while executing an insert statement on an object in the target database. It stopped due to an invalid length of the variable character string even when the source and target are having the same structure. This issue is observed while processing the corrupt data specifically the special characters.
SPO-19967 SharePlex capture's parser dumps core while decompressing the OLTP compressed DLOAD records. This issue is observed when the data size of the DLOAD record exceeds the size of the standard message.
SPO-19927 SharePlex is getting an issue while accessing a VARDIR installed on a network drive on Windows environment.
SPO-19318 SharePlex capture process stopped with an error when the DB max sessions per node (5 nodes) was set to 4000 each.
Maximum number of concurrent Oracle sessions for DDL and DML are now increased to 5000 per node.
SPO-17695 SharePlex was unable to replicate data from source database to target database when the table data has UDT (User Defined Data Type) and LOB data. This issue was observed on the SharePlex 9.2.1 version.

SharePlex 9.2.9

Issue ID Description
SPO-20665 Fixed inconsistent processing of trailing NULL on chained row preventing it from properly replicating to Kafka.
SPO-20651 Replication of comments on DDL can be disabled by setting SP_OCT_REPLICATE_COMMENT to 0. DDL replication is enabled by setting SP_OCT_REPLICATE_DDL to 1, 2, or 3.
SPO-20562 Fixed cleanup of routing files to after activation is successful.
SPO-20524 Fixed CREATE TABLE AS SELECT DDL not replicating correctly when DDL user is different from schema owner.
