If in the future, you wish to installadditional features or options, simply re-run the Oracle installer.During installation you have the option to install a set of sample schemas. Forproduction environments, Oracle recommends you do not install the sampleschemas. If you have the sample schemas in your production system, Oraclerecommends either locking or removing them.
