Customer did re-enroll the endpoint and got a new Enrollment Token and then downloaded the okvclient.jar file using the new token.
Then deployed the okvclient.jar file under a different directory on the endpoint host.

The symlink to okvclient.ora is not overwritten when redeploying okvclient.jar in a directory other than the original one.


The symlink which is supposed to be created under $ORACLE_BASE/okv/$ORACLE_SID location is not pointing to the new install okvclient.ora file.  Instead the symlink okvclient.ora is still pointing to the previous install directory path. Also the timestamp on the symlink is not current.
