As DBAs we are usually located in the middle between the IT (sysadmins, storage, network) and the development.

I hear many complaints from DBAs about sysadmins (and I […]

Oracle Database INTERVAL Partitioning and Virtual Columns

I bumped into this issue recently which prevents you INSERTING a date of 31-12-9999 into an INTERVAL partitioned table due to the fact that the LESS THAN partition value would be larger than an Oracle Date.
