12c: New "small" features: DBCA

by Kamil Stawiarski

There are a lot of new powerful features in the 12c database but don’t forget about the little features that can make a DBA happier on the day to day basis 🙂

One of my favourites is a new approach to use a DBCA command line interface to create a database in silent mode:

oracle@ryba:~$ dbca -silent -createDatabase -templateName General_Purpose.dbc -gdbName rico -sid rico -createAsContainerDatabase false -sysPassword Oracle123 -systemPassword Oracle123 -emConfiguration DBEXPRESS -datafileDestination /u01/app/oracle/oradata -storageType FS -characterSet AL32UTF8 -nationalCharacterSet AL16UTF16 -listeners LISTENER -sampleSchema true -automaticMemoryManagement false -totalMemory 4096 -databaseType MULTIPURPOSE

Nice, isn’t it?
