If you have done any play with the latest release of Oracle database 12c, you must have come across the concept of Common and Local users. I won’t rewrite what’s already there in the docs but for setting the context of the post, a Common user must be created with a prefix added to the username-C##. Miss that and you won’t be able to create one while being connected to the Container database. On (more...)
Seems like it’s going to be a week of new releases only. Last night only, I downloaded and installed Oracle database 12c patchset(12102) and today, Oracle Linux’s latest release OL7 is released. The download is available from E-Delivery portal and mine is going on. I don’t think it would take long before 12c would be certified for Oracle Linux 7 but I would do the installation of both, database and Linux, as soon as my (more...)
Just checked Tim’s latest post and guess what, Oracle database 12c’s latest release, 18.104.22.168 is available now for download. It is available as an OTN download as well as from E-Delivery. Seems like that there is no documentation update available yet as the New Features guide still doesn’t have 22.214.171.124 included in it. But I am sure that it’s coming soon!
So grab your copy now and happy downloads :=).

Oracle technologies is like an ocean and with the introduction to more and more features, it’s becoming hard for almost all to match the pace. Surely one can attend a course (or several courses) to learn about a new technology or to furnish his skills on an existing one but at times, even that is not enough. For example, it’s tough to keep a control on the quality of the training as one would only (more...)
Just a quick shout-out , in case you haven’t heard about the news before, Enterprise Manager is now available with its 4th release now. You can download it from OTN along with the documentation. Additionally, you can watch and learn about the latest features from the EM’s YouTube Channel and also from OLL’s YouTube Channel. Tim Hall’s installation articles for the same are just too good to be missed. Last but certainly not the least, (more...)
There is a lot of change that release 12.1 or 12c has brought up. And it’s not in the more advanced new features that I am talking about but even in some areas about which, we have memorized a particular concept by heart from last many years. Once such change is what I am going to mention in this post-introduction of the LREG(Listener Registration) process.
Basics of Dynamic Registration
In the earlier releases,to register (more...)
At times, just a little idea and support can do just wonders for a very large community. And that’s the same happened this year when I was talking to Murali Vallath about the user-groups and participation of Oracle professionals in India in Oracle related events organized in India by All India Oracle Users Group(AIOUG) (formed and managed by Murali only). As India is such a large country, it’s not possible for everyone to come from (more...)
Not a new thing right now since 11.2 is out from some time already.A very common question that I get is that GSD (Group Service Daemon) is offline in 11.2 RAC. That’s not something to be worried about as it’s officially documented in MOS doc# 429966.1. Only if you have 9i database, it would be available but the point is why in 2014, you are still planning to run a 9i (more...)
