What Should the 'Compatible' Setting Be Set To When Creating 12c Database?

(Doc ID 2170212.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Clinical - Version 5.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The Oracle Clinical 5.1 documentation indicates that you can create either a single 12c DB or PDB (Pluggable Database) inside a container DB.

The installation guide requires the "compatible" parameter to be set to 11.2.0.4.
Errors ORA-00406 and ORA-00722 were generated when you created the container and pluggable database.
You also tried to create the database as a single database (none CDB/PDB) and it was successful.

You would like to create this database as a PDB in a container and would like to know if there is/are any available workaround?
What should the 'Compatible' setting be set to?
