I've used the typical installation in a silent script and I have the database and instance created and can query with SQL*PLUS. But I have 3 more instances that I need to add. Do I run the dbca.rsp scripts individually or in a group file? I've tried running

dbassist -responseFile D:\response\dbca2.rsp -silent

and I get a Java Null exception error, but no explanation of why it doesn't work.

I'm using Oracle 8.1.7 on Windows NT.

Can I put all 4 instances in the basic svrtypical.rsp?

Thanks for any assistance.
