Following are the new features in DBCA in the silent mode in 19C:

1) Create a PDB by cloning a remote PDB     You can use the "createFromRemotePDB"  parameter of the DBCA command createPluggableDatabase  to create a PDB by cloning a remote PDB.

  DBCA command line arguments for this new feature:

./dbca -createPluggableDatabase -createFromRemotePDB -remotePDBName -remoteDBConnString -sysDBAUserName -sysDBAPassword -dbLinkUsername -dbLinkUserPassword -sourceDB -pdbName

 

2) Relocate a PDB to another CDB,  You can use the DBCA command "relocatePDB" to relocate a PDB to another CDB.

  DBCA command line arguments for this new feature:

./dbca -silent  -relocatePDB -remotePDBName -remoteDBConnString -sysDBAUserName -sysDBAPassword -dbLinkUsername -dbLinkUserPassword -sourceDB -pdbName

3) Create a duplicate of a Non-CDB or an Oracle RAC database .

DBCA silent mode command  "createDuplicateDB"  will create a duplicate of a Non-CDB or an Oracle RAC database.

The database to be duplicated should be in archivelog mode.If the database to be duplicated is in a remote server, then there must be connectivity from the system where DBCA is running to the remote server.

The createDuplicateDB command can be used to duplicate the following types of databases:

Duplicate an Oracle RAC database as a non-multitenant container database (non-CDB)

Duplicate an Oracle RAC database as a pluggable database (PDB)

Duplicate an Oracle RAC database as an Oracle RAC database

Duplicate an Oracle RAC database as an Oracle RAC standby database

Duplicate a non-CDB as a non-CDB

Duplicate a non-CDB as a non-CDB standby database

Duplicate a non-CDB as an Oracle RAC database

./dbca -silent -createDuplicateDB -gdbName test -primaryDBConnectionString :1521/orcl.us.oracle.com -sid test -databaseConfigType SINGLE -initParams db_unique_name=test -sysPassword XXXXX
