How to view the 'CREATE DATABASE' script for my database?

Hi,

I can access my Oracle database by using Toad (v11, Free) and sqlplus.

Is there a way for me to view the 'CREATE DATABASE' script for my database?

Thanks.

you can view the create scripts for database objects but not for database..

because database is not an object, its a software...!!!

there are many ways for recreating the database.. as expert pratima has said, that could be one of the option

other options can be taking an export/expdp of existing db and import import/impdp in another database..etc.,

One other option:  Run the database configuration asssitant (DBCA), create a template from an existing database.  Then run through the steps to create a database from the template.

At the end of the process you have the option to save the create scripts instead of actually creating the database.
