Before I left on vacation, Mark Fontecchio organized a short video conference between myself and John Appleby. The idea was to compare Oracle Exadata with SAP HANA in a shot video discussion. Unfortunately, video part didn’t really work but we did end up with at least a podcast — Here it is.
In this post I explain how you can install both Oracle VM Server 3 and Oracle VM Manager 3 allocating to both components just 1GB of RAM on the same logical server (Dom0).
Don’t restrict your database blogging diet to just your blog reader or to your casual surfing on the net. Scour the brave bold world of database blogs from end to end. Huh? difficult? That is why we have brought you another Log Buffer Edition. Covering Oracle technologies to the SQL Server forays before culminating at the adventures in MySQL, here is the Log Buffer #236 for your eyes.
When I found out that NoCOUG had accepted my abstract, “Oracle 11g: Learning to Love the ADR”, I was both ecstatic and terrified. This meant that I actually had to prepare the presentation and speak in front of peers. Surely they would throw me into San Francisco Bay if I didn’t bring my A-game, so I set out to do just that.
If you support Oracle RDBMS 18.104.22.168 and want to zero downtime applying patches to databases then it is time to have a look at new possibility of Online Patching delivered with 22.214.171.124 version and described here.
Oracle has launched Java 7, Steve Jobs has resigned, IBM has made new alignments with HP and so on.

Backup jobs can be scheduled in many different ways (crontab, Grid Control, Scheduled Tasks, etc) and finding the log file may be tricky if you don’t know the environment well. Furthermore, log files may also have already been overwritten by the next backup or simply just deleted. An alternative way of accessing that information, thus, may come handy. Fortunately, RMAN keeps the backup metadata around for some time and it can be accessed through the database’s V$ views. Obviously, if you need this information because your database just crashed and needs to be restored, the method described here is useless.
Today the post is about one of the hidden parameters for OPatch which is the main contributor to non-simple process of patching.
