In general, if the error occurs randomly, it may reflect a network issue.
In this case, however, the error occurs consistently, and only with the Compliance Report.
In some cases using the jdbc driver will resolve the issue (see TID 3528900 at https://support.novell.com ). If not, check the version of the Oracle patch set applied. For example, if the problem occurs with upgrading to resolved the issue.
