I would like to suggest that the installation panels for Optim be changed to allow for separate bufferpools to be entered and retained for tablespaces with 4K and 8K page sizes. Currently you enter a buffer pool for tablespaces and another for indexes when you create the database. But as you are going through the tablespaces, it fills the panel with the entered buffer pool until you get to one that needs a 8K page size, and tells you the BP entered is invalid. Then after you enter a valid 8K bufferpool, it retains that value for the next tablespace, which is invalid because the next one requires a 4K buffer pool.
I think the panel should retain the 4K bufferpool entered for the database for any tablespaces that require a 4K page size, and retain the first 8K bufferpool entered for any other 8K page size tablespaces. That would save the installer from having to reenter the bufferpools multiple times.
