Other reasons for Core Key application failure are discussed in Document: 1638577.1 - ODA Troubleshooting ODA Core Key Generation and Application Problems
Attempting to apply a Core Key on the Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) including V1, X3-2, X4-2 and X5-2.
This note is not designed to troubleshoot X6-2 ODA but may still provide some suggestions when troubleshooting the problem on X6-2 lite and HA versions
While this problem is most likely to occur during the first attempt to apply a Core Key, this problem can technically appear any time a new core key is being applied.
One source not discussed is regarding failure to copy the key properly or cleanly from MOS.
- We always recommend checking the byte size of the key from source and thru copying to the ODA ( common sizes are 176 and 180 bytes )
