After upgrading a database with column-level TDE from to,
ORA-28374 is received, but this is to be expected, per Note 1260584.1.

However, when applying the solution from Note 1260584.1 (rekeying using ALTER SYSTEM SET ENCRYPTION KEY), the following error is received:

ORA-28396: rekey of enc$ dictionary table failed

The wallet can be opened and closed.


Implemented column-level TDE on 10gR2, then upgraded to 11g.
