    how to create a database with dbca using non-default locations of template files




      I have an 11gR2 clone template with data from a database which is about 11Gig size on an 7.1 AIX server. Due to some mistakes on filesystem creation (thanks to our infrastructure team) I cannot copy these files to the default location of templates in the system ($ORACLE_HOME/assisstants/dbca/templates). So I have to put it somewhere else and use that location. with dbca in silent mode, you can give the absolute path to .dbc (template name) file, but the problem is that it fails because it will look for .dbf (database files) in the default location (and not the absolute path of .dbc file). Is there any way to tackle this?
