Creating a New Database Using DB Manager

You can create a new blank database or populate it with sample data using DB Manager.

To create a new database:

  1. Log on as an administrative user to the machine where the database resides.
    Note: his user becomes the database administrator (DBA) for the new database.
  2. Select Programs > Command Prompt from the Windows Start menu.
  3. Enter the following command, substituting “database name” with the name you want for your new database.

    dbmgr -new -empty database name

    Note: If you want the new database to contain sample data, substitute - empty with -sample.
