    Problems running DBCA on Linux


      I recently installed Virtual Box, and then downloaded the Oracle Developer Days pre-built VM for Linux:

      http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/datab ... 61299.html

      However, after importing this via the VB Manager, and powering up the machine, I am unable to run oracles DBCA tool from the linux terminal window:

      [oracle@localhost /]$ dbca
      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: oracle/sysman/assistants/dbca/Dbca
      Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca
      at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:202)
      at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
      at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:190)
      at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:307)
      at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Launcher.java:301)
      at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:248)
      Could not find the main class: oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca. Program will exit.

      I have made no environmental changes to this, I even re-created a second VM, just to be sure of a completely vanilla installation, and tried running DBCA after powering it on for the first time, and I get the same issue.

      Any ideas what might be causing this ?

      Many Thanks
