Trying to create a new repository for SMO


I am trying to create a new repository for SMO on linux. Here is the command used --

smo repository create -repository -dbname PDNFS -host oratest1 -login -username smo_user -port 1521

I am getting following error --

Enter password for database connection smo_user@oratest1:1521/PDNFS: ********

[ INFO] SMO-20019: Set password for repository "smo_user@PDNFS/oratest1:1521" in user credentials for "oracle".

Operation Id [Nb9da51594185dd96524960c8768e0591] failed. Error: Repository version information not found within repository.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot.



posting the SMO version and database version would help,

try :


sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL>grant connect, resource, create session to smo_user;


SnapManager for Oracle version: 3.1

Db Version

Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production

The user already has DBA did not work....


you need SMO 3.1P2 for 11gR2 if I remember correctly


hmm....the error does not suggest it....

I will surely try that version.....appreciate your help.

Thanks a lot.

There is no 3.1p2....and what I have is the latest version....

So the problem continues
