This database unique name already exists

  • 1.  This database unique name already exists

    Hello all,

    when I try to provision a new VDB it gives "This database unique name already exists, please use a different name". The name "ERPDEV" has not been used before, and to make sure I tries:

    find / -name ERPDEV

    but no valid result came back! I checked /mnt/provision directory and no folder holds this name. How can I use this name if I can't find where it is used? 

    any help or suggestion is appreciated.

    as you can see it doesn't exist. Even if it was deleted, its directory would (I believe) appear in /mnt/provision but it doesn't.

    Hi Abdullah,

    Can you trigger a refresh of the envirnoment to force database discovery again on this server.

    Regards,

    I appreciate your support Mouhssine; I apologize for my absence.
