Oracle Audit Vault - Version: 10.2.2

After an Audit Vault installation that was reported as successful, when attempting to execute "avctl show_av_status", the following error occurs:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Exception: Invalid Oracle JDBC url
at oracle.av.avca.CommandArguments.setOracleProperties(
at oracle.av.avca.CommandArguments.processArguments(
at oracle.av.avca.Avctl.startCTL(
at oracle.av.avca.Avctl.main(

The issue can be reproduced at will if at the UNIX command prompt the following command gets executed:

$ avctl show_av_status
