    Unanswered: Db creation

    When I create a Database manually using scripts, in oracle 9i standard edition
    I find that though the Database is created the Database is not getting listed in the DBCA, Available Databases listing.

    What could be the reason.

    thanx.

    cheers

    Because DBCA is not a mind reader.
    How is DBCA supposed to know that you manually created a database if you did not tell it you created a new DB?
    You need to manually update the oratab file.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    oratab would ideally be in the oracle_home/bin

    it's used for adding the database service to windows Services Menu.

    DBCA will have a Add Button for configuring the new DB which has been manually created.
