The next screen shows the options for
the types of database that can be installed: Enterprise, Standard,
or custom. Enterprise allows access to virtually all options (except
RAC); Standard has a restricted set of options; and custom allows
the options installed to be user selectable. Choose the type of
install desired and select the Next button. For our example install
we will choose the Enterprise Install. Figure 1.7 shows this screen.
The next screen shows the Database Configuration options. The
database configuration options are General Purpose, Transaction
Processing, Data Warehouse, Customized, or Software Only. Select the
option you wish and then select Next. The Software Only option is
the only one where no database is installed; use it when migration
of an existing database will be performed as a part of the Oracle
installation. This is shown in Figure 1.8.
The next screen of the installation routine allows you to specify a
name for the database if you choose to install a new database.
Specify the name and domain name for your database; the program will
strip off the domain to specify a system identifier (SID) for the
database. The normal format for the domain is sid.domain. Select the
Next button when you are satisfied with the SID and domain
specification. Figure 1.9 shows this screen.
Next, you will choose the character set to use in the database that
you will be creating (if you choose to create a database). The
selections available are:
