3 Creating a Sample Single-Instance Database

This lesson shows you how to create a sample single-instance database called TestDb. The rest of this tutorial assumes you have created this database.

Opening the Create Sample Database Dialog Box

Select Create Sample Database from the Actions menu of Oracle Resources. The Create Sample Database dialog box opens.

Using the Create Sample Database Dialog Box

Perform the following steps:

  1. Enter a service name of TestDb to be used across the cluster for the sample database in the Service Name field.

  2. In the Disk resource field, select a disk on which to build the sample database, and then in the Database Version field, select the version of the Oracle database you want to create. If you click the drop-down list against Database Version, it shows the Oracle home names in which to create it.


    Starting with Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1), Oracle Database supports the use of Oracle Home User, specified at the time of installation. An Oracle Home User is a low-privileged Windows User Account specified during installation that runs most of the Windows services required by Oracle for the Oracle home. If the user selects an Oracle Home User, the user must enter a password and confirm the same in the fields provided under Oracle Home User Password group.
  3. Click OK


    You must not use the sample database as a production database.
