When attempting to restore (import) an RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle database using the RSA-supplied backup script home/oracle/database/DBA/AVDB/scripts/AVDB_Import_AVUSER.sh,the import fails with the following error:
The directory '/home/oracle/AveksaExportImportDir' must be a valid directory.
This error occurs when /home/oracle/AveksaExportImportDir does not physically exist on the disk. When a directory is created in the Oracle database, Oracle does not check for the existence of the physical directory on the file system. The checking for its existence is done at run-time and inn most cases the directory itself is created during installation.
Create the physical directory if it does not exist:
Execute the following SQL as SYSDBA:
select * from dba_directories where directory_name like 'AVEKSA%';
