Today, I installed RAC on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 (OEL5), and I can tell you that there’s nothing exceptional about the process. The only trouble I encountered had nothing directly to do with the installation. Besides that, it’s all quite simple once 10g’s prerequisites are met. After an hour and a half, it was all wrapped up, at least for two nodes. I didn’t see anything revolutionary differences, but nonetheless there are some points worth mentioning.
SIOUG conference should have around 500-700 attendees and it’s probably the biggest User Group gathering in Eastern Europe. The topics look very good so I’m afraid I won’t be able to slack there too much in favor of beach time and swim in the Adriatic Sea. Stay tuned for the full conference coverage.
Welcome to the 62nd edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs. You know, I haven’t actually written one of these since LB#46, way back in May, so I hope I haven’t lost my touch. I guess we’ll see, eh?
In the previous article, I described my observations of RC Enqueue. Now it is time to take a look at the RC latches.
If you heard something about Miracle Database Forum, you might already know what to expect. Those of you who have already been there once probably registered already. For the rest of you, keep clicking these links to read reviews of last year’s event in Lalandia, and even take a peek here.
The latest release of Grid Control (10.2.0.3 at the time of this writing) is only able to schedule backup jobs with simple interval based on frequency (every month, week and etc). So if you want to schedule incremental backup from Backup Wizard – you will have to do a trick. First create this job using the wizard and then change its schedule. When you editing the job – more options are available. View the screen shots in this post
The 61st edition of Log Buffer has been published by Arnold Daniels on Arnolds wor(l)ds.
I’m a bit late with that “news” but I have the second article about Oracle 10g Grid Control Extensibility, published in Q3 2007 issue of IOUG SELECT Journal magazine. Few more words about my future plans.. At the end of September, I’ll be at Slovenian Oracle User Group Conference 2007, After SIOUG 2007, I’m planning to visit Laladia where newly renamed event Miracle Oracle Open World takes place, then off to the Australian Oracle User Group Conference 2007, and finally I’m heading to Birmingham for UKOUG 07. So this is it for 2007. I’m looking forward to see you on one of those events!
A short note to let everyone know that I’ll be heading to Dubai later today to participate in Pythian’s exhibit in the Business Solutions Hall. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, GITEX is like COMDEX for the Middle-East – it’s literally the third largest tradeshow in the world where COMDEX is #1 – and it’s big, really really big, like 120,000 attendees big. Hope to see you there!
Steve Karam, The Oracle Alchemist, saved the skin of a harried LB administrator this week (that would be me), stepping up at the last moment to edit and publish the 60th edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs. Thank you, Steve!
