All supported DevTest releases.


The error is because the table already exists in the database. There might be some constraints that still remained in the existing database. 



Created clean Schema for Registry database or if using an existing database make sure all tables are dropped and no constraints remain.  

Ensure that the character set of the Oracle database supports Unicode.

In addition, for the initial creation of the database, the Oracle user must have the CREATE VIEW system privilege. Without this privilege, the following error might be generated during installation: Schema creation failed: ORA-01031: insufficient privileges.
