DBCA fails with ORA-29516: Aurora assertion failure

When creating 11g database on a new system we encounter below error…

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-29516: Aurora assertion failure: Assertion failure at joez.c:3422
Bulk load of method java/lang/Object.<init> failed; insufficient shm-object space
ORA-06512: at line 3

You should look for dbca error logs for detailed error message that you can find under /<ORACLE_BASE>/cfgtoollogs/dbca/<SID>/

We found below error from postDBCreation.log

IF CatbundleCreateDir(:catbundleLogDir) = 0 THEN
ERROR at line 71:
ORA-06550: line 71, column 14:
PLS-00201: identifier 'CATBUNDLECREATEDIR' must be declared
ORA-06550: line 71, column 11:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored

This error could be one of the below reasons

1. The file systems or mount point options are in correct
2. Incorrect ulimit sessions for oracle user
3. You system has JAVA_JIT_ENABLED=TRUE

In my case I have below mount options in /etc/fstab
/dev/shm tmpfs defaults,nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0

After removing “nodev,nosuid,noexec” from /etc/fstab resolved the issue.
/dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

Thanks & Regards
