15.2 Creating Oracle Database

This section provides information about creating Oracle Database (also called single-instance database).

Important:

You can also use the information provided in this section to create a single-instance container database.

You can create a container database on a host only if Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1), or higher, is installed on the host. For more information on container databases, view Oracle Database Administrator's Guide.

This section covers the following:

15.2.1 Prerequisites for Creating Oracle Database

To create single-instance databases using Cloud Control, ensure that you meet the following prerequisites:

  1. Ensure that you meet the infrastructure requirements explained in Chapter 2.

  2. Ensure that you have created and stored a database template in the Software Library or Oracle Home. For information about creating database templates, see Section 4.3.8.

  3. Oracle Home for the database you want to create must be installed and you need to have credentials of the owner of the Oracle Home. If the Create Database wizard is launched from the Provision Database deployment procedure wizards, the Oracle Home need not be installed earlier. In such cases, the validations for Oracle Home will be skipped during the procedure interview and will be performed during execution of the deployment procedure.

  4. The database plug-in that supports the corresponding database version should be deployed on OMS and Agent. For information about deploying plug-ins, see Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide.

  5. Ensure that you have sufficient space to create the database, and that you have write permissions to the recovery file location.

  6. If you are using a template from the Software Library for database creation, you must have Write permission to the Staging Location.

  7. If you are using Automatic Storage Management (ASM) as storage, ASM instances and diskgroups must be configured prior to creating database.

  8. The Cloud Control user creating the database template must have CONNECT_ANY_TARGET privilege in Cloud Control.

15.2.2 Procedure for Creating Oracle Database

Follow these steps:

  1. From the Enterprise menu, select Provisioning and Patching, then select Database Provisioning.

  2. In the Database Provisioning page, select the Create Oracle Database Deployment Procedure and click Launch. The Create Oracle Database wizard is launched.

  3. In the Database Version and Type page, select the database Version and select Oracle Single Instance Database.

    In the Hosts section, specify hosts and Oracle Home to provision the database. You can also specify Host Credentials and Common Oracle Home across all hosts. The Host Credentials can be Named or Preferred Credentials.

    Click the plus (+) icon to add the host. Select the host and specify Oracle Home. Select Host Credentials or add new. Click the plus icon to add new credentials and specify User Name, Password, and Run Privileges and save the credentials.

    Click Next.

  4. In the Database Template page, choose the database template location. The location can be Software Library or Oracle Home. The template selected must be compatible with the selected Oracle Home version.

    If you have selected Software Library, click on the search icon and select the template from the Software Library. Specify Temporary Storage Location on Managed Host(s). This location must exist on all hosts where you want to create the database.

    Click Show Template Details to view details of the selected template. You can view initialization parameters, table spaces, data files, redo log groups, common options, and other details of the template.

    If you have selected Oracle Home, select the template from the Oracle Home. The default location is ORACLE_HOME/assistants/dbca/templates.

    Click on the Lock icon to lock the fields you have configured. These fields will not be available for editing in the operator role.

    Click Next.

  5. In the Identification and Placement page, specify database configuration details. Specify Global Database Name and SID prefix.

    In the Database Consolidation section, select Create As Container Database if you want to create a container database. By default, an empty container database is created. If you want to add one or more pluggable databases to that container database, then select Create a Container Database with one or more PDBs, and set the number of PDBs.

    If you choose to create multiple PDBs, then the unique name you enter here is used as a prefix for all the cloned PDBs, and the suffix is a numeric value that indicates the count of PDBs.

    For example, if you create five PDBs with the name accountsPDB, then the PDBs are created with the names accountsPDB1, accountsPDB2, accountsPDB3, accountsPDB4, and accountsPDB5.

    Specify the Database Credentials for SYS, SYSTEM, and DBSNMP database accounts.

    For database version 12.1 or higher, for Microsoft Windows operating systems, the database services will be configured for the Microsoft Windows user specified during Oracle home installation.This user will own all services run by Oracle software. In the Oracle Home Windows User Credentials section, specify the host credentials for the Microsoft Windows user account to configure database services. Select existing named credentials or specify new credentials. To specify new credentials, provide the user name and password. You can also save these credentials and set them as preferred credentials.

    Click on the Lock icon to lock the fields you have configured. These fields will not be available for editing in the operator role.

    Click Next.

    Note:

    • SID must be unique for a database on a host. This means, the SID assigned to one database on a host cannot be reused on another database on the same host, but can be reused on another database on a different host. For example, if you have two databases (db1 and db2) on a host (host1), then their SIDs need to be unique. However, if you install the third database on another host (host2), then its SID can be db1 or db2.

    • Global database name must be unique for a database on a host and also unique for databases across different hosts. This means, the global database name assigned to one database on a host can neither be reused on another database on the same host nor on another database on a different host. For example, if you have two databases (db1 and db2) on a host (host1), then their global database names need to be unique. And if you install the third database on another host (host2), the global database name of even this database must be unique and different from all other names registered with Cloud Control.

    • The database credentials you specify here will be used on all the destination hosts. However, after provisioning, if you want to change the password for any database, then you must change it manually.

  6. In the Storage Locations page, select the storage type, whether File System or Automatic Storage Management (ASM).

    If you want to use a file system, then select File System and specify the full path to the location where the data file is present. For example, %ORACLE_BASE%/oradata or /u01/product/db/oradata.

    If you want to use ASM, then select Automatic Storage Management (ASM), and click the torch icon to select the disk group name and specify ASMSNMP password. The Disk Group Name List window appears and displays the disk groups that are common on all the destination hosts.

    In the Database Files Location section, specify the location where data files, temporary files, redo logs, and control files will be stored.

    • Select Use Database File Locations from Template to select defaults from the template used.

    • Select Use Common Location for All Database Files to specify a different location.

      If you select Use Oracle Managed Files (OMF), in the Multiplex Redo Logs and Control Files section, you can specify locations to store duplicate copies of redo logs and control files. Multiplexing provides greater fault-tolerance. You can specify upto five locations.

    In the Recovery Files Location section, select Use same storage type as database files location to use the same storage type for recovery files as database files. Select Use Flash Recovery Area and specify the location for recovery-related files and Fast Recovery Area Size.

    Select Enable Archiving to enable archive logging. Click Specify Archive Log Locations and specify upto nine archive log locations. If the log location is not specified, the logs will be saved in the default location.

    Click on the Lock icon to lock the fields you have configured. These fields will not be available for editing in the operator role.

    Click Next.

  7. In the Initialization Parameters page, select the memory management type as Automatic Memory Management or Automatic Shared Memory Management.
