Oracle Patch Update for October 2014 and ArcSDE Geodatabase

if you have applied the latest Oracle Security Patches released in October 2014 to your enterprise database. You need to roll back the patch OR grant elevated permissions.

for myself, i have granted each geodatabase user the “select” permission to the view “v_$parameter” and it fixed the problem. Of course, this is a workaround but not advisable implementation from security perspective since the normal oracle/geodaabase account should not have permission on this view.

The Bug ID Number is: BUG-000082555
