When you specified lowercase "DB_UNIQUE_NAME" variable(for example:orcl) in DB:18.3 DBCA to create DB instance
after the instance be created, you will find the directory of data files and control files contains uppercase DB_UNIQUE_NAME which you specified.
This result is different from the previous version(DB:12.2/DB:12.1).

If we save the DBCA scripts which can be generated by DBCA, we could see that even if you specified lowercase DB_UNIQUE_NAME in DBCA,
the script is to create uppercase DB_UNIQUE_NAME in the directory path of data files and control files.


Using DB:18.3 DBCA to create database instance and specified lowercase "DB_UNIQUE_NAME" variable.
