DBCA fails with "The template data is not in the expected format" (when choosing "Manage templates").
There are several bugs reported and the following workarounds mentioned in them were tried, however, the problem was not solved Example:
1-Remove <Variables> section manually from template
Referece Bug 19561020: BUG REPORT: VARIABLE SECTION IN TEMPLATE BUG IN DBCA SHIPPED WITH 184.108.40.206
which has been closed as duplicate of Bug 19406694 : DBCA FAILS TO VALIDATE THE CREATED TEMPLATE IF VARIABLES SECTION SPECIFIED fixed in 12.2 Future release
2-Remove this reuse tag from the template:
<reuse>true</reuse> <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<Remove this one
<image filepath="/oradata" name="control0.ctl"/>
Reference Bug 19596596: INVALID TEMPLATE FILE IN CREATING 220.127.116.11 DATABASE SILENTLY
