It’s been discovered that after applying 18.104.22.168.161118 Windows DB Bundle Patch 24922870, both DBCA and DBUA no longer function and give the following error:
Oracle Support have only filed a bug on Wednesday this week (11th January 2017):
Bug 25369562 : DBCA & DBUA NO LONGER FUNCTION AFTER APPLYING PATCH 24922870
So if you’re planning to use either DBCA or DBUA after applying the patch, you might want to hold off until the bug is fixed 🙂
It’s also discovered NETCA no longer function after applying this patch, it will start but does nothing when you click on ‘Configure Listener’.
