Using DBCA with Oracle RAC or Oracle RAC One Node

Review this information to understand the tasks you can perform using DBCA.

DBCA has the following primary database functions:

  • Create and delete databases

  • Create database templates

  • Create, plug, unplug, and delete pluggable databases (PDBs)

  • Add and delete database instances

  • Register databases in Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control

  • Configure database options (such as Oracle Database Vault) and register database with the Directory Server


Cluster Managed Services are no longer managed through DBCA. Instead, use the Cluster Managed Services page in Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, if available, or SRVCTL. For more information, see the following document:
