This time, you got a different error. So we are making progress! It sounds like your are using LogMiner on a system that has exceeded the expectations of the Oracle developers. But you can fix this.
First, locate the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/dbmslmd.sql file. Copy it to a different file so that you can modify it. We'll call this file dbmslmd_new.sql. Find the line that looks like:
TYPE col_desc_array IS VARRAY(513) OF col_description;Increase the number '513' to a larger number, like '900'. Then, sign on to SQL*Plus as SYS and run this script that you saved. This will increase the size of this array so that you won't run into this problem.
