DB Startup procedures Oracle 11g

Hello I am writing a manual and wanted to do peer review.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is the following correct?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Database Server Installation – where to go for this on a unix server?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The schema will be provided by the project development/DBA staff.
A abc schemapackage consists of SQL files that can be executed using the target RDBMS admin tool (for example, sqlplus is usually used for Oracle).

Schema Owner:       abc
TableSpace Names:       abc_TS_01            
(for all tables except Message_Content table)
              abc_TS_02      (for Message_Content table)

The abc schema is defined in the following files:
            abcCreate.sql
            abcDrop.sql

The following procedure is required to install the database schema.
Edit the file abc.sql
a.      Update the userid and password
Update location of spool (log file)
2)      Execute the installation script
#createschema.sh
3)      Browse the log file for any errors

The embedded zip file contains the DB install shell script, and sample schema SQL files.  The actual schema SQL files (DirectDrop.sql and DirectCreate.sql) will be provided by xyz team.

however there are lots of examples of scripting, here's a good collection showing various uses.

we can't tell you if it's correct or not.

but,  assuming you "will" have all of the files you specify and each of them does what you say they do, then yes, your instructions appear to be correct.


When I do installs, I try to remove as many human steps as possible.  Or, if I can't, then prompt for them rather than require file edits.  If you ask somebody to modify your file, you are asking them to break your file.  Even if it's something as simple as filling in name/password fields.

Since your users will be running a shell script.  I suggest your instructions be...

unzip file   Install.zip
run    installme.sh

and then installme.sh  will prompt for name/password/spool file and after execution it will automatically pipe the log file through "more" or pop it up in vi or some other tool for inspection.

do you have any installation guides or can you point empirically to a place where I could get more information?
