Create Database Script


#1

Just got this question from another user – why does it generate everything
BUT the Create Database command?

Things like the CHARSET and Database name are omitted…

Hi Jeff,

Just got this question from another user - why does it generate
everything BUT the Create Database command?
I can’t help with that one, but the attached might help? Run as SYS.

One thing to beware of, I have an environment variable named “logs” into
which almost all my scripts spool. You may need to alter this line:

spool %logs%\crdb.sql

And remove the “%logs%” bit.

Cheers,
Norm. [TeamT]

They were using

alter database backup controlfile to trace

I showed them the ‘Toad Way’ and they loved the flexibility with the
options, so it’s all good.

Like your script though, you get that from Metalink?

I think the reason was that I couldn’t find everything I needed in the
data dictionary. It’s been a while since I did that though, maybe
it’s time to revisit it.

Afternoon Jeff,

alter database backup controlfile to trace
That works fine too! It may not be the easiest way to do it though, but
useful on Toad-Free sites!

Like your script though, you get that from Metalink?
Now you didn’t think I wrote it myself? I steal all my best scripts! :wink:

I’m guessing a lot of folks don’t have privs to run an ALTER DATABASE, so the script comes in handy!

Perhaps, but I’d question the practice/need of those without privs
reverse-engineering the CREATE DATABASE statement.

Just sayin’…

This came from a developer who owned his instance…so def not a standard
practice I think.
