Yet again the monster that is Oracle Open World is about to take over San Francisco. I won’t be making it this year, but considering we had something like 60,000 attendees last year I’d hate to see what the numbers are gonna be this year!
To try and make it a little easier for you to find all the Private Cloud and Lifecycle Management with EM12c material, here are the ones I know about. If (more...)
On the Maximum Availability Architecture website, there’s a paper on <awful term alert>Best Practices</awful term alert> for Database Consolidation. It’s a great paper, as you’d expect from the MAA guys (well, apart from that awful term alert I had to add! ). Since database consolidation is an area I work in a lot, I thought I’d start looking at implementing as much of their recommendations as I could in Enterprise Manager, which of course is (more...)
When I normally start work on a new EM 12c environment, I would request to have a userid created; however, I don’t have a userid in this environment and I need access EM 12c as SYSMAN. Without knowing the password for SYSMAN, how can I access the EM 12c interface? The short answer is that I can change the SYSMAN password from the OS where EM 12c is running.
Before changing the SYSMAN password (more...)
In this article I will try to explain how to monitor your Dell Raid Controller with Cloud Control when running Oracle Virtual server 3.x (OVS3.x).
Some time ago a physical drive broke down on one of our Dell PowerEdge Servers. Not causing any problem because it was configured in a raid set using the Dell build in PowerEdge Raid Controller( hereafter PERC). However, we did not notice this breakdown until also a second (more...)
In case you haven’t noticed it – and chances are you haven’t noticed because I just created it! – I’ve added a new page called “Tips and Techniques” to the website. It’s where I keep a random collection of odd items I’ve come across that might be of interest yet don’t deserve a full blog post. It’s sort of like a FAQ list, but not necessarily with the “F”.
You can reach it either via (more...)
This is an interesting point that came up recently, where someone had a DBaaS environment running on an Exadata system for a couple of months, with no issues. It has recently started to return errors on the Database Cloud Self Service portal in the “Placement Algorithm” region:
Constraint : Number Of Databases
Current Resource Usage: 18
Total Resource Available: 10
Maximum Limit Defined: 10
Requested Value: 1
Total Resource that can be used: 10
In the past few posts, I’ve covered setting up PDBaaS, using the Self Service portal with PDBaaS, setting up Schema as a Service, and using the Self Service Portal with Schema as a Service, all of these using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c release 188.8.131.52. Now I want to move on to an area where […]
In a previous blog post, I covered setting up Schema as a Service for schema level consolidation. In this post I’m going to cover how to use the Self Service Portal with Schema as a Service in EM 184.108.40.206. Just as it was in my posting on using the Self Service Portal with DBaaS, our […]
Schema as a Service provides database consolidation by allowing administrators to host multiple application schemas within a single database. This offers Database as a Service to possibly hundreds of application users without creating database sprawl. Users can perform day-to-day actions like provisioning, monitoring, and backup, all from a single Self Service console. Schema as a […]
Following on from my earlier blog post on setting up Pluggable Database as a Service (PDBaaS) in EM 220.127.116.11, this post will cover how you actually use the Self Service Portal to create on demand an empty pluggable database within the container database I created for that earlier post. You’ll no doubt be pleased to […]
