Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA)



The following sections contain examples that illustrate the use of silent mode.

DBCA Silent Mode Example 1: Creating a Clone Database

To create a clone database, enter the following into SYS$SCRATCH:DBCA.ARGS:



-templateName Transaction_Processing.dbc

-gdbname ora9i

-sid ora9i

-datafileJarLocation /disk$disk1/oracle9i/ora9i/assistants/dbca/templates

-datafileDestination /disk$disk1/oracle9i/ora9i/oradata

-responseFile NO_VALUE

-characterset WE8ISO8859P1

Then, assuming that the ORACLE_HOME environment is set up by executing:

$ @<ORACLE_HOME>orauser

invoke DBCA. Log files are located in the same place as with an interactive install.
In this example:


Also, check the <ORACLE_HOME>[.assistants.dbca.logs] directory.

DBCA Silent Mode Example 2: Creating a Seed Template

To create a seed template, enter the following into SYS$SCRATCH:DBCA.ARGS:



-sourceDB ora9i

-sysDBAUserName sys

-sysDBAPassword change_on_install


Because the DBCA design (in a similar manner to that of the

Oracle Universal Installer) causes GUI classes to be loaded (even in
silent mode), a silent installation still requires an X connection.


Either VMS-style arguments or UNIX-style arguments may

be used in the arguments that are contained in an argument file.
