Creating databases

Modifying database properties

  1. On the database server, make sure that the folder db_1 contains the subfolders your_oracle_instance/data and your_oracle_instance/index.

    If this folder hierarchy does not exist, create it manually before you run the setup-database task. The setup-database task requires these folders to create database users. If these folders do not exist, the setup-database task will fail.

  2. cd profile_root/ConfigEngine

  3. To create the database users, type the following command:

    • ./ setup-database -DWasPassword=password

    This task will automatically create the necessary users, permissions, and table spaces.
