Obviously I did compare the two scripts and found out the second one was not going to work ever.(The first script would have worked if only the SYSTEM tablespace would have been correctly sized) The second script contains environment variables missing the initial dollar sign. So it could have been
This would only have worked if you would have called the script in the shell like
sqlplus system/change_on_install <<EOD
create database ...
EOD But no sign of that.
In sqlplus the @ sign is used a shortcut for $ORACLE_SID (except for the database name), so the script is a piece of junk, 'written' by someone who thinks he knows everything better.

This is very very funny. Look who's saying this! Someone from Norway who can't be bothered to read documentation, who can't be bothered to use the right tools for the right jobs, and who posts two completely different scripts, and accuses someone of not reading his posts. People are trying to help you out voluntarily. If you would like to receive any help in the future, apologies would be in order.

But probably there is another general tip to anyone responding: Too many people asking for help, refuse to do anything to resolve their own problem: they just dump it, expecting someone else will do their work for free.
