Symptoms

The objective is to install and configure an Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g product.

The installation of the software binaries has been successful. However, when it comes to the configuration of an AS instance, the installer or configuration wizard hangs indefinitely at the  "Domain Creation" step.

The following error is logged  in <Oracle_Inventory_Location>/log/install<date-time>.out file:
