This is a simple test to reproduce the error. Create a couple of tables in an 11gR2 database:
create table empty (id number, foo varchar2(2000) );
create table aaa (id number, foo varchar2(10));
insert into aaa values (42,'asdfas');
from user_tables ;
Then perform a simple export from a 188.8.131.52 client:
exp oyise/oracle@orcl file=oyise.dmp log=oyise.log
Excerpt from the output / logfile:
. about to export OYISE's tables via Conventional Path ...
. . exporting table AAA 1 rows exported
. . exporting table EMPTY
EXP-00003: no storage definition found for segment(0, 0)
(For export to succeed with one table, create it with a name alphabetically before the EMPTY table).
Note, if the X,Y in "no storage definition found for segment(X,Y)" is non-zero, you have another issue that you probably find a solution for on Oracle Support, e.g. when segment owner <> table owner.
Solution: Upgrade client or allocate one extent for the table that fails:
alter table empty allocate extent;
You may consider set the parameter DEFERRED_SEGMENT_CREATION to FALSE in case more empty tables will be created.
Also this error does not happen on Data Pump export 184.108.40.206.
