Database Setup Error – Character Length Semantics is not Enabled

During installation of PeopleTools with Oracle database, there is a common error, which occurs during the step of Database Setup. This error is Character Length Semantics (CLS) not Enabled.

Character Length Semantics (CLS) is not enabled error occurs when you select the type of database as Unicode and then you’re prompted to select the type of PeopleSoft database — whether Demo or System and as soon as you make a selection, you get this error.character length semantics is not enabled

 

The reason for the same is that you would have skipped the installation step where the guide asks you to set the NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS to CHAR.
