Symptoms

Oracle 12.1.0.2:
Trying to create pluggable database from seed database, but getting the error:


ORA-01917: user or role 'PDB_DBA' does not exist
Next, tried creating the pluggable database without the ROLES clause for the admin user and it still gives the same error.

The role PDB_DBA already exists in the container database, MOONCD01.  Still getting the error "ORA-01917: user or role 'PDB_DBA' does not exist"
on pluggable database creation.
