  Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

Oracle10g Grid Computing with RAC
Chapter 6 - Install, Configure and Database Creation

Creating RAC Database with DBCA

Figure 6.26 DBCA Database Template Selection Page


Then click Next, and the DBCA will display the Database Identification page.

Figure 6.27 DBCA Database Identification Page

Then, enter the global database name and the Oracle system identifier (SID) prefix, as well as the SYS and SYSTEM user passwords, for your cluster database.

Figure 6.28 DBCA Database Credentials Page

Note: The global database name is limited to eight characters in length and must begin with an alphabetical character. The SID prefix must be between one and five characters in length and also begin with an alphabetical character. You must allow space for as many characters as are required for the numeric designations of your instances, for example, 1-9 is one character; 10-99 would be two characters. The DBCA uses the SID prefix to generate a unique value for the oracle_sid for each instance.

Click Next, and the DBCA will display the Storage Options page. Use the Storage Options page to select a storage type for database creation. The Cluster File System option is the default. Select a storage option, click Next, and the DBCA displays the Database Components page.
