18c and Newer: DB Instance Not Using WALLET_LOCATION in SQLNET.ORA. (Doc ID 2705473.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 28, 2020

Applies to:

Advanced Networking Option - Version 18.2.0.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The WALLET_LOCATION setting in the sqlnet.ora file is not being referenced properly by the instance, CDB or PDB.

The sqlnet.ora file is in the proper location and the setting for the wallet location is correct.  A level 16 Oracle Net trace reveals that the wallet location being referenced by the instance does not match this setting.

Example sqlnet.ora file setting for WALLET_LOCATION:


WALLET_LOCATION = (SOURCE = (METHOD = FILE) (METHOD_DATA = (DIRECTORY = /app/oracle/admin/$ORACLE_SID/wallet)))

Changes

This is likely a new installation of Release 18c or newer OR it is a new implementation of EUS or any other feature where a WALLET_LOCATION might  be specified.
