I must disagree. There is no $ORACLE_HOME/admin/<SID>/scripts. There is no admin directory under $ORACLE_HOME. In 9.2.0 you must create a template first by using the default configuration, save it, then exit the OUI. Then start it up again and use the existing template. Go through the normal prompts and then select the option to have it generate a shell script file near the end of the process. Have it save the script file in a directory of your choosing or it will put it in
$ORACLE_HOME/assistants/dbca/templates by default.

I always like to create my databases by hand via the create database statement.  However, whenever a new version comes out I use the dbca assistant to generate the create database script so I can see what Oracle does by default (although I usually don't run this generated script.)

I'm trying to do this with my new 9.2 installation, but at the end (step 7), it doesn't seem to allow the generation of the script without creating the database.

Is dbca creating a script to run and if so, where is it storing it?
