Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Trying to create a database using the DBCA.
After configuring all options successfully, clicking finish does nothing.

This can also happen when using DBUA to upgrade a database.

There is no progress, and no errors are returned.

Looking at the dbca trace.log does not show any errors, just the following:
[AWT-EventQueue-0] [11:20:29:828] [DBCAWizard.onFinish:1139] m_bFinishClicked: true
[AWT-EventQueue-0] [11:20:30:2] [DBCAWizard.onFinish:1139] m_bFinishClicked: true
[AWT-EventQueue-0] [11:20:35:126] [SQLEngine.done:1958] Done called


In 10.2 trace information should be written automatically to the following location

  $ORACLE_HOME/cfgtoollogs/dbca/trace.log

In 11g, the location of trace.log has changed to:

  $ORACLE_BASE/cfgtoollogs/dbca/<DBNAME>/trace.log
