Licensing: Remove Options During DB Creation

Hi all,
So, let’s say you want to prevent yourself to violate Oracle licensing of your Enterprise Edition database… What a better moment to do it then when you are creating the database?

During database creation, there are several options that can be opted out. DBCA CLI has the option “-dbOptions” to disable options at will. For example, see below how to disable all the options.

dbca -silent -createDatabase -responseFile /home/oracle/dbca/dbca.rsp -dbOptions IMEDIA:false, CWMLITE:false, SAMPLE_SCHEMA:false, ORACLE_TEXT:false, APEX:false, OMS:false, DV:false, JSERVER:false, SPATIAL:false

If any of the options is required after the database has been created, let’s say you bought the license, you can simply look up on how to install them from Oracle Docs public documentation.

Hope it helps, cheers!
