Information in this document applies to any platform.


On a 2 node RAC system, create a new wallet directory on an OCFS shared file system and update the sqlnet.ora files on all nodes to point to the shared directory.  Then restart all RAC nodes.
Trying to create the wallet with ALTER SYSTEM command fails with the error message:

SQL> alter system set encryption key identified by "********";
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-28382: Global wallet operation in RAC failed

V$ENCRYPTION_WALLET shows correct wallet location on all nodes but GV$ENCRYPTION_WALLET is not showing the correct wallet location(the one defined in sqlnet.ora file).
