2.3.3 Changing the Configuration of a Database Using DBCA

You can use Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) to change the configuration of an existing database. For example, you can make configuration changes such as:

  • Add database options that were not previously configured (for example, Oracle Label Security or Oracle OLAP)

  • Change default security settings

  • Change the server mode from dedicated to shared, or the reverse

To change the configuration of a database using DBCA:

  1. Start DBCA as described in "Starting DBCA".
  2. In the Database Operation window, select Configure Database Options and click Next.
  3. Follow the instructions in the DBCA guided workflow.
