  Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

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

Creating RAC Database with DBCA

Figure 6.31 DBCA Database Services Page

To create your required services on the DBCA Database Services page, you expand the Services tree. Oracle displays the global database name in the top left-hand corner of the page. You select the global database name and then click Add to add services to the database. Enter a service name in the Add a Service dialog and click OK.

The service name will appear under the global database name. Select the service name and the DBCA will display the service preferences for the service on the right-hand side of the DBCA Database Services page. Change the instance preference (preferred or available) and total application failover (TAF) policies for the service as needed. Repeat this procedure for each service and when you are done configuring the services for your database, click Next. The DBCA will now display the Initialization Parameters page.

Now, select the File Locations tab on the Initialization Parameters page.

If you select Create server parameter file (spfile), then you may need to modify the location for the server parameter file depending on the type of file system you use as described for the following conditions:

a) If you use a cluster file system, or if you have a single-node RAC environment, then you can place the server parameter file on the file system.
