Hello,

I've been using Database Configuration Application to create Oracle 9i database so many times with no problem and I had also saved a couple of templates for future use.
For the first time after deleting my templates, I cannot create any database using the database configuration wizard with Oracle 9i Transaction processing template (Transaction_Processing.dbc).

I keep getting the following error:

ORA-01503:CREATE CONTROLFiLE failed
ORA-01565: error in identifying file 'c:\oracle\oradata\SSDB1\DRSYS01.DBF'
ORA-27041: unable to open file.

Please help!
Thank you,
-Mitra

Error says:
ORA-01565: error in identifying file 'c:\oracle\oradata\SSDB1\DRSYS01.DBF'
ORA-27041: unable to open file.


check if the file exists in the specified path.

I checked before posting the question, the file does not exist (
'c:\oracle\oradata\SSDB1\DRSYS01.DBF').

What I don't understand is what could had happened to cause this problem. I didn't have any problem creating any of the pervious 10 databases I created using Database Configuration Assistance. This happened right after I deleted two of my own database templates. I appreciate if you could help me to resolve the problem.

Thank you,

I am not sure, but by the looks of it, it appears when you are creating a controlfile, oracle checks the existence of files referenced, i.e. whether the files are actually existing or not. & this may be the cause for you getting this error.

Expert comments awaited on this reasoning!!!!

As Girish already suggested, Oracle is trying to locate the file and but the file does not exist physically. As you said that you deleted few templates, it could be an issue ( Razz ).

DBCA is only meant for beginners so try to create a database manually so that you can have better control over the commands used for database creation.


Regards
