The installation instructions here :
If you want to install it with Oracle, you can configure the Oracle database during installation, so the Preparing to Install tasks are detailed below:
To have the DBA configure the Oracle database before installation. If we have the installer configure the database, will it cover all of the oracle configuration details?
1) Which configurations would the Oracle DBA still have to do if the installer configures the Oracle database?
The DBA needs to install the Oracle DB in network as per the doc since the configuration details are handled
2) Does the DBA need to run set_system_parameter_oracle_pnet.sql and run_oracle_db_scripts.sql before installation if we select to have the installer configure the database?
If you are on the TSIM install screen and you select USE EXISTING USER then you need to run set_system_parameter_oracle_pnet.sql and run_oracle_db_scripts.sql before installing TSIM.
If you are on the TSIM install screen and you select CREATE NEW USER then you need to run only the set_system_parameter_oracle_pnet.sql before Installing TSIM
3) During the installation, we will enter the information for basically three accounts correct? A User with SYSDBA privileges, the proact user, and the Oracle report user?
If on the TSIM install screen and you select CREATE NEW USER you need to use SYSDBA otherwise, you would need to use the PROACT and REPORT user name and password
a) if so, do any of those need to be created in advance, if we have the SYSDBA user/password, it will create the other two accounts, but we just need to input the password for those accounts in the installer?
BMC: If on the TSIM install screen and you select USE EXISTING USER then you need to run set_system_parameter_oracle_pnet.sql and run_oracle_db_scripts.sql before installing TSIM.[No need to provide SYSDBA]
If on the TSIM install screen and you select CREATE NEW USER then you need run only set_system_parameter_oracle_pnet.sql before Installing TSIM and need to provide SYSDBA
