What we want to learn here is creating a database using Database Configuration Assistant. I created this tutorial as simple as possible :]

A standard installation can be completed on a computer with 1 GB of RAM and 1.5 GB of swap space or larger. Depending on the activity level of the machine on which you are installing the Oracle database software, the standard installation can complete in 20 minutes or less.

Oh yeah… i’m using Oracle 10g and Windows XP for installation

Database Configuration Window


Choose “Create Database”

Database Templates

Different types of databases have their own specific instance and storage requirement. Characteristic of these examples are the following :

  • Data Warehouse : store data for long periods and retrieve them in read operation
  • Transaction Processing : Accomodate many, but usually small, transaction
  • General Purpose : Work with many transactions and store them for a medium length of time
  • Custom Database : For complex environment

Database Identification

Global Database Name : for network use

SID : Instance name of your database

in this case, my SID and my Global Database Name is “dbAzer”

Management Options

Grid Control : For Parallel Databases

Database Control : Email notification or daily backup

Database Credentials

You can use same password for all cccount, or use different password

Storage Options

File System : Using your OS Filesystem

ASM : Automatic storage, include its size

Raw Devices : Usually for mirroring/Cluster database

Database File Locations

Choose according your needs. Oracle Management Files (OMF) eliminate the need for you to directly manage the operating system files comprising an Oracle Database. You specify operations in terms of database objects rather than file names.

Recovery Configuration

If required, specify a flash recovery area and enable archiving
