(Back to the Previous Post in the Series) As many readers of this blog are probably aware, Oracle Corporation has released Oracle Database 184.108.40.206 so far for the Linux, Solaris, and Windows platforms. Oracle Database 220.127.116.11 may be downloaded from Oracle’s OTN website. This article is not about Oracle Database 18.104.22.168, at least not specifically about that […]
This is not a complete how-to, because I do not think its warranted…you pretty much click Next Next Next (which in itself is a credit to the product)
But one thing to note – on the few machines I’ve installed it on, the installer gets to 100% and then just sits there for a LONG time.
If you click on the "Details" button, you’ll see the location of the installer log. The long pause is in the "Saving Inventory" phase…
So my advice is – just be patient. It will (eventually) get to the "Installation finished" message
A friend was recently describing Agile to me…I stress, not Agile the principle, but Agile the way its been implemented at their site…I thought I’d share it with you
This post is part of the series on Delphix:
Data virtualization takes a single data source, for example a set of data files, and allows multiple databases to share those data files as if each database has private sole access to those data files. The data files are kept coherent for each database by sharing the duplicate blocks while at the same time keeping modified blocks private to the database that made the change. Data virtualization for databases allows many copies of a database to share the majority of the underlying storage and allows copies to be provisioned in minutes for almost no storage overhead.
Data virtualization for databases accelerates enterprise application projects for businesses around the world by providing fast, flexible access to virtual data—dramatically lowering costs and complexity.
Its been well documented for a while that Oracle were not going to allow raw devices in 12….but this still seems brutal.
8.1.12 Desupport for Raw Storage Devices
Starting with Oracle Database 12c, block file storage on raw devices is not supported. You must migrate any data files stored on raw devices to Oracle ASM, a cluster file system, or Network File System (NFS).This also affects the OCR and voting files for Oracle Clusterware. You cannot store the OCR or voting files on raw devices. Oracle Clusterware files must be moved to Oracle ASM before upgrading.
So for all those customers running raw (most typically seen on OS clusters, where clustered file systems were an additional license…) then you’ve got some more upgrades coming your way
I’m sure many people love the collapsed form of the Oracle documentation, with the associated "Expand All" function…
Me….I hate it. The first thing I do is click "Expand All" and "Hide Navigation" to make it look like a standard html page and the Oracle documentation of old..
If you’re a dinosaur like me, then you can permanently turn it off – simply go into the "dcommon/js" folder and rename "doccd.js" to something else.
