OOW 2015: my presentation

I don’t have an official OOW presentation in the conference this year. However, I am presenting a session at the Oak Table World 2015 event behind held concurrently with OOW 2015. My topic is “Exadata Database Machine Security” and I plan to review some of the newest updates to security for the Exadata Database Machine engineered system.

As the website indicates, the event is completely free and there is no pre-registration or enrollment required–just show up and come on in to hear some great speakers present on great topics. Hope to see you there on Monday, October 26, 2015!

Patching Time

Just a quick note to point out that the October PSU was just released. The database has a few more vulnerabilities than usual (31), but they are mostly related to Java and the high CVSS score of 9 only applies to people running Oracle on windows. (On other operating systems, the highest score is 6.5.)

I did happen to glance at the announcement on the security blog, and I thought this short blurb was worth repeating:

Grid/CRS AddNode or runInstaller fails with NullPointerException

Posting this here mostly to archive it, so I can find it later if I ever see this problem again.

Today I was repeatedly getting this error while trying to add a node to a cluster:

OSP #3a: Build a Standard Cluster Platform

This is the fifth article in a series called Operationally Scalable Practices. The first article gives an introduction and the second article contains a general overview. In short, this series suggests a comprehensive and cogent blueprint to best position organizations and DBAs for growth.

We’ve looked in some depth at the process of defining a standard platform with an eye toward Oracle database use cases. Before moving on, it would be worthwhile to briefly touch on clustering.
