Fails To Open / Create The Wallet: ORA-28353 (Doc ID 395252.1)

IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)


Trying to create the encryption key and hence the wallet file for the first time fails with the following errors:




On some 64-bit platforms the default wallet location may not work as documented, this was ultimately identified as a porting issue and it has been fixed in RDBMS version 11g, and in patchset (and higher).
Therefore, and also because it is best practice to know and determine the wallet location deliberately (since it is a pretty important file), please consider to always set the ENCRYPTION_WALLET_LOCATION in the sqlnet.ora file.

Comment: If you have specified an ENCRYPTION_WALLET_LOCATION in your sqlnet.ora file you should not have the problem writing to any default location, in that case check for the proper format and indentation of your sqlnet.ora file.
