Oracle 11gR2 RAC On Linux Using NFS

I finally got round to trying an NFS installation of 11gR2 RAC. Oracle Database 11g Release 2 RAC On Linux Using NFS No real surprises here. It all seems a little simpler when using NFS, but it was cronically slow on my crappy kit. Cheers Tim…




Something old and something new…

A couple of articles crept out of the last couple of days. First a revamp of an old article about XML over HTTP to bring it in line with some of the stuff I’ve been presenting recently. XML-Over-HTTP (REST Web Services) From PL/SQL Next, something new that caught my eye to do with auditing in [...]




New scheduler stuff in 11gR2…

In 11gR1 it was necessary to specify dependencies using the RELIES ON clause, but now Oracle 11gR2 takes care of Detection of Sources for you. Neat. Cheers Tim…




Dipping my toe in 11gR2…

I’ve had my first play with 11gR2 today: Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2) Installation On Enterprise Linux 5.0 Nothing too unpredictable really. I guess the most noticeable change is the new installer. I didn’t have an issue with the old installer, but a few friends from the Microsoft world had pointed out how dated [...]




RTFM… If you can find them…

A certain something has been released today, so like any self respecting DBA/Developer I went straight for the manuals… At the time of writing there are none listed on OTN or Tahiti. I tried cunningly altering existing URLs to match the new version, but to no avail. I’m sure they will appear soon. Cheers Tim… [...]
