Uninstalled Oracle Virtual Machine Manager (OVMM) 3.2.8 from existing Red Hat Linux 6 2.6.32-504.12.2.el6.x86_6 OVM server using the installer option. Left original Oracle Database OVM repository intact with intent of reinstalling OVMM using the same uuid. The OVMM database is an Oracle database and it only contains this one OVMM repository.
While completing installation steps as described in https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E35328_01/E35330/html/vmiug-manager-install.html
1. Select "custom" install type and use existing OVM repository (on existing Oracle DB).
2. Provide database host servername, SID and listener (step 1).
3. Automatically installs java and then prompts for schema name for OVS repository (entered ovmmeta/ ****** (password).
4. Step 4 prompts for "weblogic" username and password - default is auto selected, left as is and entered password.
Install proceeded automatically through next steps and then failed with error on Step 7, creating weblogic domain.
The ovm-manager-3-install-2015-08-18-213707.log shows errors:
