Cloud Control 12cR3, Oracle Linux and VMware

I mentioned some time ago that I was pushing my current company to move much of their gear on to VMware, mostly because of poor resource utilization on many of the servers. That process is still under way. One thing I wanted to mention specifically was our use of Cloud Control 12cR3. Up until recently, we [...]




Cloud Control 12c Database Backup Jobs (Continued)

I’ve been rather critical of the way Cloud Control handles database backup jobs, as can be seen in these two previous posts. I love Cloud Control 12c, but the job management is really annoying! Oracle Cloud Control EMCLI : First Thoughts Yesterday I found out I schedule database backups in Cloud Control the “wrong way”… [...]




Oracle Cloud Control EMCLI : First Thoughts

Whilst waiting for a new version of Cloud Control, which will hopefully include my job scheduler enhancement requests, I decided to see if I could solve my problem using the command line interface (EMCLI). That spawned this very basic article. Installing Enteprise Manager Command Line Interface (EMCLI) for Cloud Control 12c I was initially really [...]




Oracle Cloud Control 12c Release 3 Installation (EM12cR3)…

With all the excitement about Oracle Database 12c being released, you may have missed the release of Cloud Control 12c Release 3. It’s available for download from OTN. All the usual ports are available. This is the version you are going to need if you want to monitor 12c databases in your organisation. I did [...]




I love Cloud Control 12c, but the job management is really annoying!

Cloud Control 12c is a great product. Yes, it is suffering from bloat, but generally it is a really great tool. I’m always encouraging people to ditch the DBControl and switch to Cloud Control! Having said that, one area that annoys the hell out of me is the job management, which feels really clumsy. I [...]




Cloud Control 12cR2 : Is it really release 2?

Oracle Cloud Control 12cR2 is installed and merrily monitoring one of the test 11gR2 databases running on HP-UX. I’ll probably leave it like that until I come back from Oracle OpenWorld. I don’t want to change the entire administration and monitoring infrastructure just as I leave for a couple of weeks. As I’m re-familiarizing myself with the [...]




Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 2 Installation…

I did an EM Cloud Control 12cR2 installation at work yesterday. The database repository was 11.2.0.3 on HP-UX and the middle tier was installed on RHEL 5.8. The installation was pretty much the same as the 12cR1 version. Over the next few days I’ll be testing out some of the features to decide if we [...]




Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 2…

Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 2 was released a couple of days ago for all the major platforms. That in itself is not news any more, but the fact we are going to trial it at work as a replacement for our 11g Grid Control installation is. It’s in my low priority task list, [...]




What happens when 12c Cloud Control runs out of disk space?

Question: What happens when 12c Cloud Control runs out of disk space? Answer: It doesn’t work very well. I have a 12c Cloud Control installation on an Oracle Linux 6.1 VM and I was pushing an agent to both nodes of an 11.2.0.3 RAC, also on OL6.1 VMs. The agent installation seemed to go fine and [...]




Oracle Database on Oracle Linux 6.1…

I mentioned the day before Open World I put a Virtual RAC on Oracle Linux 6.1 article live. Although the procedure was complete, some of the screen shots were from an old article as I didn’t have time to redo them before my flight. I’ve just run through the procedure again and taken new screen [...]
