How to Fix ORA-65093: multitenant container database not set up properly on Oracle 12c

This issue often occurs in a Oracle database 12c installation on Linux. The error stated that multitenant container database not set up properly, which means we have to set the enable_pluggable_database to True. This error occurs whenever we want to mount the database but the multitenant container database was not set up properly. To fix this, connect to your Oracle 12c using the sysdba user:

sqlplus / as sysdba

Next, do a startup nomount command on the SQLPlus command line interface:

startup nomount

Change the value of the enable_pluggable_database system parameter by typing:

ALTER SYSTEM SET “enable_pluggable_database”= TRUE SCOPE = SPFILE;


Now, do a shutdown command on the database and do a startup command again to show that now you can mount the database:

shutdown immediate
