Error Message :
Oracle: ORA-00904: invalid identifier
SQL Server: Native error: '102'

The usage statistics tool, ucybdblc.exe, runs several SQL scripts that include db functions in order to return license information. In some cases the tool stops with an error and shows the following error messages:
 
Oracle:
20160728/105021.042 - U0029108 UCUDB: SQL_ERROR    Database-Handles  DB-HENV: 710a330  DB-HDBC: 7115d90

Solution:
This is a configuration issue on the database side. In some of the SQL-scripts used by the tool (see folder bin/scripts) db-functions like dbms_lob.substr are used. If this error appears, please check the SQL-file where the tool stopped and see what Database-function was used. Contact your DBA to grant the necessary privileges to the user for this function.
