Oracle Database XE 21c failed to run the dbca command

William TangNov 5 2021 — edited Nov 5 2021

I'm one of the arch linux AUR maintainers of oracle xe package. I'm currently port the rpm package to a PKGBUILD file. However, when I run the following command to create the database (the same command used in the oracle-xe-21c script):

su -s /bin/bash oracle -c '/opt/oracle/product/21c/dbhomeXE/bin/dbca -silent \
-createDatabase -templateName XE_Database.dbc -characterSet AL32UTF8 \
-createAsContainerDatabase true -numberOfPDBs 1 -sid XE -pdbName XEPDB1 \
-emConfiguration DBEXPRESS -emExpressPort 5500 \
-J-Doracle.assistants.dbca.validate.DBCredentials=false -ignorePrereqs \
-J-Doracle.assistants.skipAvailableSharedMemoryCheck=true \
-skipDatapatch true -emExpressPortAsGlobalPort true \
-customScripts /opt/oracle/product/21c/dbhomeXE/assistants/dbca/postdb_creation.sql -gdbName XE'

It fails with the error message:

[WARNING] [INS-08109] Unexpected error occurred while validating inputs at state 'ConfigurationParams'.
CAUSE: No additional information available.
ACTION: Contact Oracle Support Services or refer to the software manual.

From the trace log, there seems a stack overflow exception (See the attached file for the full log):

(The above five lines repeat a lot of times)

So, what might be the issue?
