Oracle Ebusiness Suite 12.2 Online Patching Feature

Oracle hosted a webcast of Sysadmin-oriented Preview of EBS 12.2. It was an enlighting webcast, which gave a very good idea about things coming up in Release 12.2. Today I want to discuss about a prominent feature of the upcoming Oracle E-Business suite Release 12.2, Online patching feature. The screengrab in thiis post of a slide from presentation gives a nice overview of the feature.

Solaris 11 – First Impressions as Storage Server

Since I was using a version of 11 already, an experimental upgrade was not a problem. With the BE (boot environments) feature, one could boot into any version safely. BE is an awesome feature. Need to install a patch? Install into a boot environment – any problems reboot into the old environment. BEs leverage ZFS snapshots to create a clone of your boot disk, install any patches onto it and allow you to switch flawlessly between the two.

Prep’ing for UKOUG or what

The presentation deadline for UKOUG is 8 days away. I have been madly preparing for 2 presentations, one on my best friend (rman) and the other on my co-best friend (the physical standby). Both of these topics have been perennial favourites for me and many of my attendees. I find with both of these items, there is always something more to learn.

Git::CPAN::Patch now detect repositories

Git::CPAN::Patch could already seed a local repository with the latest distribution of a module, or its whole BackPAN history, or its GitPAN mirror.

Please allow me to demonstrate:

Log Buffer #245, A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

Getting stuck on technical problems is a norm in the life of any IT professional and DBAs are no exception. With evolving databases and their streaming new features make it more challenging. Blogs often provide the Eureka moment for those problems. So sit back and enjoy this Log Buffer Edition, which is Log Buffer #245.

New & Improved: MooseX::Role::BuildInstanceOf

Okay, so MooseX::Role::BuildInstanceOf is not one of my modules. And while I submited the patch, the feature itself was born out of fREW’s DBIx::Class::DeploymentHandler. So, in all this, my role was at best to be the pollinator agent between two beautiful flowers. But, hey, it’s not like a little bit of noise is going to hurt any of the involved parties, sooo… let’s see what the buzz’s about.

RMAN Duplicate in Details

I took debug of duplication and figured out that RMAN internally executes procedure dbms_tts.transport_set_check preventing any further copy operations if tablespaces do not satisfy TTS requirements. Now the plot thickens and considering RMAN shows everything that it does in log file I decided to repeat the same steps but one by one and manually. Let’s get into it.
