I got similiar error: Notice there is a "dash" between schema and chkptab table. I deleted the repicat process and delete the check table. Created the CHKPTAB table without schema in front.
2013-11-01 05:44:03 ERROR OGG-00446 Checkpoint table GGS_OWNER_CHKPTAB does not exist. Please create the
table or recreate the REP1 group using the correct table.
Fix for me:
delete replicat rep1
DBLOGIN USERID ggs_owner, PASSWORD ggs_owner
delete checkpointtable GGS_OWNER.CHKPTAB
add checkpointtable CHKPTAB
ADD REPLICAT rep1, EXTTRAIL /u01/app/ggs/dirdat/rt
And IT WORKS!!
