Creating A Container Database (CDB) With A Subset Of Options

(Doc ID 2001512.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 19, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Oracle recommends the creation of a container database with all options as that configuration
rules out any option related mismatch problems while unplugging and plugging a PDB from one container to another.
However customers have often asked whether it is possible to create a container database with a subset of options.
Although it is still recommend to create a CDB with all options, this document outlines a supported method of creating a
CDB with the options that the customer chooses to install.
