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.
