1. Overview

Usually to create database we will use DBCA graphical user interface.

Some times may not have access to a graphical user interface then we can use the DBCA silent mode to create a database.

We are going to create NON-CONTAINER database as COKE 

Database Binary Version: 19.3.0.0.0
OS                     : Linux x86_64


2. Set the Environment

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/19.0.0/dbhome_1
[oracle@rac1 ~]$ export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH
[oracle@rac1 ~]$ which dbca
/u01/app/oracle/product/19.0.0/dbhome_1/bin/dbca
[oracle@rac1 ~]$ dbca 

-- No need to create directory COKE, it will create automatically by dbca


3. Create Database using DBCA silent mode

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ dbca -silent -createDatabase -templateName General_Purpose.dbc -gdbName COKE.rajasekhar.com -sid COKE -sysPassword Coke123$ -systemPassword Coke@123 -emConfiguration NONE -datafileDestination /u01/app/oracle/oradata -storageType FS -characterSet AL32UTF8

4. Verify

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ cat /etc/oratab | grep -i COKE
COKE:/u01/app/oracle/product/19.0.0/dbhome_1:N
[oracle@rac1 ~]$

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ ps -ef | grep pmon
oracle    4273     1  0 19:53 ?        00:00:00 ora_pmon_COKE
oracle    5240  2552  0 19:56 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --color=auto pmon
[oracle@rac1 ~]$

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ . oraenv
ORACLE_SID = [dell] ? COKE
The Oracle base remains unchanged with value /u01/app/oracle
