While testing a new NetBackup client installation on a server, I received the error:

ORA-27028: skgfqcre: sbtbackup returned error
ORA-19511: Error received from media manager layer, error text:
VxBSACreateObject: Failed with error:
Server Status:  Communication with the server has not been initiated or the server status has not been retrieved from the serve

A version of the issue is listed here: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH51356

It ends up, with the install, the logs directory was overlooked. (And just creating a ‘logs’ directory isn’t enough, it needs to have the full/proper expected structure.) Once I created that, the backup carried on.

Trying to run an install, i hit:

INS-07003 Unexpected error occured while accessing the bean store


Cause-No additional information available.

Action-Refers logs or contact Oracle Support Services

-[INS-07009] Unable to load bean store -oracle.xml.parser.v2.XMLParseException: Invalid char in text.
-Invalid char in text.

The fix ended up being quite simple. Apparently there was some extra, hidden character somewhere in my environment. I updated my path, oracle_home, oracle_sid as mentioned in https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=1773372 and poof, the installer was happy.

uninstall 11gR2

Apparently using the OUI to remove an Oracle installation is no longer supported. There is now a ‘deinstall’ utility that sits in the Oracle Home itself, or can be downloaded from OTN.

Personally, since I’m trying to delete the home I’d be running the file out of, that method doesn’t make any sense to me; thus I prefer the OTN route such as:
linux 64bit
(Then again, personally, I prefer the old way as it gave me a visual list of every directory it planned on deleting as opposed to a consolidated list that I can only hope it sticks to.)

unzip (the Linux64bit takes 303M)
./deinstall -home </u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/myhome>

review logs & manually delete Oracle home if it is still around..
