Hi All,

I am getting the following error when running the Oracle19c DBCA . The installation fails and shows the following message

"Error while executing "C:\app\Oracle19c\db_home\rdbms\admin\dbmssml.sql". Refer to "C:\app\Baral\cfgtoollogs\dbca\orcl\dbmssml0.log" for more details. Error in Process: C:\app\Oracle19c\db_home\perl\bin\perl.exe"

I am installing Windows 10 Professional edition

Moreover the dbmssml0.log file mentioned in the error message is empty

Please help me resolve it .

    The DBCA should create a master log file as well. It is probably in something like $ORACLE_BASE/cfgtoollogs/dbca/dbsid

    Look in there for log files that might give you clues as to the problem.

    is this the first database you ever created against this oracle home?

    Did the oracle software installation go smoothly?

    can you try to stop any antivirus during the database creation (while running the DBCA)?
