Applies to:

Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall - Version 12.1.2.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Table Audit trail for the RAC database is configured. Normally after configuring the audit trail the collection starts automatically and the collector status should be showing green arrow pointing upwards.

However the collector does not start and show red arrow pointing down. Attempting to start it manually brings it back to the same state.

 The following error could be seen while starting the audit trails from $AGENT_HOME/av/log
