Oracle Fusion Applications 11G is now available! You can get the installation from the Oracle E-Delivery site in no time. This is the moment many of us have been waiting for, if not for many years then for many months for sure. Keeping in mind the amount of effort Oracle have invested in the product and the fact that the product is going to be a flagship ERP system on the market for at least next 10 years the most important thing is to get an access to the documentation. For me to understand the concepts and fundamental principals of the product is much more important than getting it installed ASAP. Let’s get into it.Read More >

This is a short one. Yesterday I was asked to marry an EBS autoconfig feature to an Oracle 11G Cluster infrastructure. In particular the client’s intention was to use srvctl to manage Instances and at the same time keeping DB side Network related configuration managed by autoconfig. There are several possible solutions. However, I used the following…Read More >
In looking at this subject, most of you will say: Hey Yury! What’s new that you can tell us about? The following note describes it all:
11gR2 Grid Infrastructure Does not Use ULIMIT Setting Appropriately [ID 983715.1] These were exactly my thoughts when I was called to troubleshoot a case where a DB instance, starting with the “srvctl start instance” command failed to use Huge Pages in Linux. Huge pages are configured in Linux already as shown in the following example.

For last few months I was part of the Pythian’s team helping implement Oracle 11gR2 Clusters for different Oracle customers.

The following commands are just few examples on how you should start/stop Oracle processesRead More >
