    Hi Ahmed,

    According to metalink (Doc ID 844327.1), the 11g client is not compatible with oracle 8i:

    ORA-3134 when trying to connect to a 8.1.x database (Doc ID 844327.1)

    The only ONLY solution is to upgrade the oracle database 8i.

    However to compromise, you can consider to use 10g client (not a good idea as well, because either the sap kernel does not allow 10g or source SLT is affected) for SLT.
    To update/change client, you can refer to SAP note 819829. The minimum impact is to install another SAP application and using oracle 10g client only there, and this application is only using to load oracle 8i data. Again still not a good idea, but in case you cannot upgrade 8i database, you can try whether 10g client can be applied.

    Best regards,
