My case, I provided the information - sid, global database, oracle_base etc..then runInstaller and select the button for creating database ... which is supposed to install software and database (automatic dbca). I am crating this database from scratch. The default oracle_sid is orcl but in my case it is ora11g ..

However it gave me in the GUI my oracl_sid=ora11g and global databasse.ora11g.localhost
and oracle_base and oracle_home parametersabove is VERY helpful & indicates that an instance named "ORCL" was created
however, I don't see initora11g.ora in the following directory: /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/dbs
[oracle@localhost dbs]$ ls
