I am currently working on a project to install Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Release 13.3 and was looking for a more simplified method to create a 12.2 database with all the required components.
I was excited to find:
Creating a Database Instance with Preconfigured Repository Using Database Templates
I was disappointed to find the template is only available for 22.214.171.124.0 DB and 126.96.36.199.0 DB.
Creating a database instance with preconfigured repository using database templates caution
Make sure that the 188.8.131.52.0_Database_Template_for_EM13_3_0_0_0_.zip file is used only for Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c Release 3.
It looks like the template version must exactly match the example below.
EM 13c: Creating an Enterprise Manager 13c Cloud Control Repository using a Database Template Fails: ORA-00603: ORACLE server session terminated by fatal error (Doc ID 2291220.1) While the 184.108.40.206 version of the database is supported for EM 13.2 repository use, a database template for the EM 13.2 repository database is only supplied for the 220.127.116.11 version of the database, and they are specific for the version:
Oracle skipped 12.2 DB version when creating DB template which is disappointing.
In conclusion, gathering details and planning requirements accordingly may simplify the installation process.
