Symptoms

    * If for any reason the catqm.sql script fails, it is recommended to look at log files to determine the reason why the install failed. If the script doesn't complete OR if the following error is reported after repeating the XDB installation:

    ORA-04098: trigger 'SYS.XDB_INSTALLATION_TRIGGER' is invalid and failed re-validation.


    * Could result in data loss for future upgrade operations if the objects logged by these objects aren't removed after an XDB install or upgrade:

    trigger ==> sys.xdb_installation_trigger
    trigger ==> sys.dropped_xdb_instll_trigger
    table   ==> sys.dropped_xdb_instll_tab
