Hi,

Im running Oracle 10g in a SPARC box.

I have an instance called GT1 with severla tables in it. I want to create the instance GT2 with the same parameters (of course difenret SID but same place to put data, memory,etc) without the tables of GT1 - so its not a clone.

If you have something in a command line - my connection is too slow for me to use and X host for dbca...

Tks,
Joao

Without the tools, probably the best way is to clone the database then drop the tables.

The spfile parameters are pretty easy, use create pfile from spfile then edit the pfile for the new database and use it to create the spfile for the new one.

Since you can't use dbca, how did GT1 get created?  If it was from a script, just copy the script, edit the names/locations and create GT2 from the script.

Actually wasnt me who created the GT1.
I will try to work with DBCA.. it will take more but I think its simpler...

With DBCA, can I create the new instance without getting the data from the old one? I think without cloning the data it will be faster for me.

I've never tried to create a new database from an existing one with dbca.

I created a dbca template.  I copy that around to all my Oralce installs and when I run dbca I select my template.  I can then tweak any parameters I need to or leave them alone.  It's more cookie-cutter.
