In my last post, I walked you through the first part of installing the Oracle Database 12c STIG compliance standards sample code. The next step to using these compliance standards is to associate your Oracle Database 12c databases with these standards. You may recall there are two separate standards in the sample code, one for multitenant databases and the other for conventional architecture databases. The process of associating the databases is the same in each case. You simply have to choose the compliance standard that matches your architecture. In this walkthrough, I will show you how to associate a multitenant database with the “Oracle 12c PDB STIG” compliance standard.
The first step is to go to the “Compliance Standards” tab on the “Compliance Framework” page. To access this, follow the menu path “Enterprise” -> “Compliance” -> “Library”:
One of the most requested features in the compliance management area has been a compliance standard for Oracle Database 12c. As most of you would know, Oracle Database 12c has been out for quite some time, and indeed Larry Ellison has just announced at OOW2016 availability of Oracle Database 12cR2 in Oracle’s public cloud offering. However, as I discussed in another post earlier this year, creating a new STIG compliance standard is not a simple matter. In fact, we are still working on integrating the DISA Oracle Database 12c compliance standard into Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c.
While I always enjoy getting in front of customers to present on some new and really cool functionality in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, it’s even better to be in the audience listening to actual customers doing just that! There are a couple of those presentations coming up on Thursday this week at OOW. Unfortunately I can’t be there to listen in, but if you’re interested in learning how to provide scalable and flexible patching solutions, make sure you get along to these two presentations and learn directly from these customers!
Yes, it’s that crazy time of the year again, when the city of San Francisco turns red – it’s Oracle Open World (OOW) 2016! If you’re planning on going this year, I hope you have your hotel room booked, because they disappear very, VERY quickly!
How many times have you had maintenance or a release complete and everyone is sure that everything’s been put back the way it should have been, all t’s crossed, all i’s dotted and then you release it to the customers only to find out that NOPE, something was forgotten in the moving parts of technology?
