When migrating one Oracle instance onto to another Oracle instance the following error message appears:

"Msg = ORA-00955: name is already used by an existing object"


This error can be caused by starting the target StarTeam configuration while the migration is in progress.  Starting the target server configuration will cause tables and views to be created within the Oracle database. When the migration is started the process will try to create the same tables/views and will report the error when it discovers the tables/views already exist.

To resolve this, drop all the objects from the target schema which were created by the starting the configuration and retry the migration.  Once the migration runs, the objects will no longer exist and the migration will create them correctly.
