In this post, I’m going to explain how to install Oracle sample schemas, if they are not already installed.
If you created a database sing DBCA , you can select to install the sample schemas:
Please note that using this method (dbca) will install only the HR sample schema.
Or you can install sample schemas manually after the database creation as explained in this post.
Download the Scripts:
Starting from Oracle database 12.2 ,the sample schemas setup scripts are now available from GitHub. Pick the release that matches your database release:
Extract the files:
Extract the file “db-sample-schemas-19c.zip” directly into $ORACLE_HOME/demo/schema, replacing any existing files.
Adjust the Working Directory:
Run the following Perl command to replace “__SUB__CWD__” tag in the scripts with your current working directory. If you are using an alternate working directory, change to that directory before running the Perl command.
perl -p -i.bak -e ‘s#SUB__CWD#’$(pwd)’#g’ *.sql */*.sql */*.dat
Install all sample schemas at once:
The following schemas will be installed.
- HR : Human Resources
- OE : Order Entry
- PM : Product Media
- IX : Information Exchange
- SH : Sales History
- BI : Business Intelligence
sqlplus / as sysdba
@mksample oracle oracle hr oe pm ix sh bi users temp $ORACLE_HOME/demo/schema/log/ localhost:1521/orcl
oracle: is the password for the system & sys users respectively.
hr is the password for the HR user.
oe is the password for the OE user.
pm is the password for the PM user.
ix is the password for the IXuser.
sh is the password for the SH user.
bi is the password for the HR user.
@mksample oracle oracle hr oe pm ix sh bi users temp D:\app\WINDOWS.X64_193000_db_home\demo\schema\log\ localhost:1529/orcl
[before running the above command, ensure that the “SYSTEM” user is unlocked in both the root and pluggable containers]
You may want to install only individual schemas (e.g. HR or OE), In this case follow the following procedure:
To Install the HR sample schema
In the following example, I’m going to install HR schema into a 19.3 pluggable database “PDB1”.
Then run the following script to create the HR schema:
To Install the OE sample schema:
Here is a live demo about OE installation:
How to Drop Sample Schema (e.g. HR)?
If you are in Windows platform, and you don’t have “perl” installed, then you will need to modify the scripts manually to replace “__SUB__CWD__” with “”you working directory that holds the sample schema scripts like :(D:\app\db193\WINDOWS.X64_193000_db_home\demo\schema)”.
If you have cygwin terminal emulator ( or any similar one) installed in your windows machine, then you may use command similar to the following to find the files that contain the “__SUB__CWD__” keyword:
find . -name “*.sql”|xargs grep SUB_
To keep it short, the following 21 files need to be updated to change: “__SUB__CWD__” to “D:\app\WINDOWS.X64_193000_db_home\demo\schema”. Also, you need to replace the “/” with the “/” in the file paths:
If you need an already updated script files for Windows with the “__SUB__CWD__” to “D:\app\WINDOWS.X64_193000_db_home\demo\schema”, then download it from here:
Extract the downloaded zip file to: D:\app\WINDOWS.WINDOWS.X64_213000_db_home\demo
In the following video, I’ll show you how can I install all the sample schemas in the “orcl” database (it is 19.3) on Windows. I’ll first remove the currently exist “HR” schema before the installation.
I didn’t edit the video and left all errors faced me to see how I fixed quickly.
What about scott schema!. Ok, this may be the subject of my next post.
