The dcm-daemon component can not be started up either with opmnctl startproc ias-component=dcm-daemon, AS Console operation, by a dcmctl command or by the configuration assistants at install time.

The problem can happen at install time when running the configuration assistants or after the installation has been performed.

The following error is logged in the $ORACLE_HOME/opmn/logs/dcm-daemon~dcm-daemon~dcm~1 file:

When trying to startup the dcm-daemon with a dcmctl command, the following error is raised:
