DBCA silent mode is not setting DB_UNIQUE_NAME even though it is specified in DBCA template file. The issue occurs both for standalone or RAC config.

After DBCA completes successfully, the DB_UNIQUE_NAME parameter has the same value as the DB_NAME parameter. This is not the expected result.


Note that DB_UNIQUE_NAME can be set after database creation.
However, this causes database and diagnostic dest files to show up in different directories after the DB_UNIQUE_NAME is set.


No changes. Just trying to use DBCA in silent mode and set the DB_UNIQUE_NAME in the used template.
