Oracle: impdp raises ORA-39083: Object type PROCOBJ failed to create with error: ORA-01843: not a valid month

Problem description:

You are importing a data pump dumpfile and impdp raises the following error(s) when trying to create a job or schedule:

ORA-39083: Object TYPE PROCOBJ failed TO CREATE WITH error:
ORA-01843: NOT a valid MONTH
Failing SQL IS:
... dbms_scheduler commands ...


The exporting data pump session used different NLS-settings than your currently importing one.

DBMS_SCHEDULER invokes your current NLS-settings when creating jobs/schedules. For instance, if your environment variable NLS_LANG was set to AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1 for your export, you should use the same setting during import. Otherwise creating scheduler jobs/schedules will raise above mentioned error messages.

Problem resolution:

You should use equivalent NLS_LANG settings in your environment when performing expdp and impdp. This will workaround the issue.
