Creating an Oracle Database

Perform this task to configure and create an Oracle database in an Oracle Solaris Cluster environment.

To create the database, use one of the commands from the following list:

  • The Oracle dbca command

  • The Oracle sqlplus command

Note -  To use raw devices such as for hardware RAID or Solaris Volume Manager for Sun Cluster, manually create the database by using a CREATE DATABASE statement. For more information, see Creating a Database with the CREATE DATABASE Statement in Oracle Database Administrator's Guide and Oracle Database SQL Language Reference.

You can create the Oracle database to be either administrator managed or policy managed.

For detailed instructions for creating an Oracle database, see your Oracle Database documentation.

The way to specify to the dbca command the location of data files on a shared file system depends on your release of Oracle.

Note -  Starting with Oracle Database version 12c, an Oracle ACFS file system can be used for data files.
