How To Run CREATE DATABASE Statement?

This is Step 7. Oracle Administrator Guide provided a sample CREATE DATABASE statement. But it is a long statement. You can modify and same it in a file, $ORACLE_HOME/configscripts/create_database_fyi.sql, and run the file within SQL*Plus. Here is a copy of the modified CREATE DATABASE statement:

CREATE DATABASE FYI
USER SYS IDENTIFIED BY fyicenter
USER SYSTEM IDENTIFIED BY fyicenter
LOGFILE GROUP 1 ('/oraclexe/oradata/FYI/redo01.log') SIZE 10M,
  GROUP 2 ('/oraclexe/oradata/FYI/redo02.log') SIZE 10M,
  GROUP 3 ('/oraclexe/oradata/FYI/redo03.log') SIZE 10M
MAXLOGFILES 5
MAXLOGMEMBERS 5
MAXLOGHISTORY 1
MAXDATAFILES 100
MAXINSTANCES 1
CHARACTER SET US7ASCII
NATIONAL CHARACTER SET AL16UTF16
DATAFILE '/oraclexe/oradata/FYI/system01.dbf' SIZE 32M REUSE
EXTENT MANAGEMENT LOCAL
SYSAUX DATAFILE '/oraclexe/oradata/FYI/sysaux01.dbf' SIZE 32M REUSE
DEFAULT TABLESPACE tbs_1
DEFAULT TEMPORARY TABLESPACE tempts1
  TEMPFILE '/oraclexe/oradata/FYI/temp01.dbf'SIZE 20M REUSE
UNDO TABLESPACE undotbs
  DATAFILE '/oraclexe/oradata/FYI/undotbs01.dbf'
  SIZE 20M REUSE AUTOEXTEND ON MAXSIZE UNLIMITED;

Here is how to run this long CREATE DATABASE statement:

SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME\config\scripts\create_database_fyi.sql;
CREATE DATABASE FYI
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01501: CREATE DATABASE failed
ORA-00200: control file could not be created
ORA-00202: control file: 'C:\ORACLEXE\ORADATA\FYI\CONTROL.DBF'
ORA-27040: file create error, unable to create file
OSD-04002: unable to open file
O/S-Error: (OS 3) The system cannot find the path specified.

Don't worry about the error messages. They are caused by the missing directory for data files in file system.
