ORA-39001: invalid argument value
ORA-39000: bad dump file specification
ORA-31641: unable to create dump file "C:\test\expdat.dmp"
ORA-27038: created file already exists
OSD-04010: option specified, file already exists
Same name file is already present on the directory location.
We can solve this with two ways:
1. Use REUSE_DUMPFILES parameter in expdp command with “Y” value. default value is “N”(Not to replace old files already present in location)
Expdp usr1/usr1 directory=dbdump dumpfile=expdat.dmp full=y reuse_dumpfiles=y
2. You can rename the old file present manually with OS commands and start the job again.
mv expdat.dmp expdat.dmp_bkp
