This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hey

I need to confirm whether Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 64 bit is supported for Installation of Enforce and rest of detection servers. As per System Requirement Guide “Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (32-bit or 64-bit) Update 2 or later” is supported. So it should be supported but I just wanted to confirm.

I've tried running on a 6.x install and cannot make it work. I ran into issues with Oracle not installing correctly. YMMV

So, it may be a compatibility issue between Oracle and RedHat 6...
