    Unanswered: Creating a new database instance on Solaris

    I have been trying to create a new database instance on Solaris. I have an Oracle 10g installation on a Solaris 10 machine.

    I tried using the dbca UI tool for doing this and it always hangs in the last screen, which results in not creating a new instance for me.

    Can anyone please point me to a URL or explain how I can do this manually rather than using dbca?
    As you may have noticed I am a newbie at oracle, so sorry for cross postings or extremely easy questions!

    dbca creates a log file which will contain clues.

    you may be able to identify it using the command below

    find $ORACLE_HOME -name \*log -ls | tee /tmp/capture.log

    IIRC it contains either "INSTALL" or "install" & has the timestamp when it started as part of the file name too.

    Without more specific clue no actual advice is possible.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.

    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    How long did you wait? It can take quite a while while it is actually building the database and running the install scripts.
