Last updated on OCTOBER 24, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database Vault - Version 11.1.0.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

This issue is specific to 11.1.0.7 on AIX OS only with DST <Patch 7580744> installed.

While enabling Database Vault in an EBS environment on AIX,  DBCA is failing with an empty popup message window . This is leaving the database with partially configured Database Vault objects.


The dbca log shows the following :
