Alfresco 5.2 our DMS of choice!

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Introduction Nowadays companies have to deal with lots of electronic documents, some of them being mission critical. Insurances, Banks and Pharma industries are good candidates for ECM/DMS solutions since they produce and deal with lots of documentations, contracts and receipts. Usually the largest ECM/DMS infrastructures can be found at those customers which initiate large digitalization processes. However even for smaller businesses, managing e-documents like sales quotations, offers, answers to RFIs and RFPs becomes mission critical….

Oracle Database 12c: PDBs not fully transportable yet

By | Database management | No Comments

One of the benefits of the new Oracle multi-tenant database option is to create a kind of cloned environment through simple statements. This post will focus on the creation of pluggable database through a database link. The reason of this topic is that I am currently developing an advanced RMAN cloning procedure for 11g and this new 12c feature might make our life much easier in the future release. The second reason of choosing this…

Configuration des options en Oracle 11g EE avec ‘chopt’

By | Database management | One Comment

La configuration des options sous Entreprise Edition avant Oracle 11g pouvait être un véritable parcours du combattant. Donc, une attention particulière devait avoir lieu avant l’installation des binaires Oracle; à savoir quelles options devaient être installées! Depuis la version 11g, les choses ont bien changé, grâce à l’utilitaire “chopt” se trouvant sous $ORACLE_HOME/bin. Voici la syntaxe d’utilisation de “chopt”: chopt [enable |disable] db_option db_option: dm = Oracle Data Mining dv = Oracle Database Vault lbac…

When using Automatic Memory Management for Oracle, it is sometimes difficult to monitor the memory usage and in particular to find the right tools to get the right information about currently allocated structures. The instance which will be analyzed has been configured with AMM (Automatic Memory Management) on Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.1. The current memory_target is set to 1 GB: SQL> show parameter memory_target NAME                                 TYPE        VALUE ———————————— ———– ———— memory_target                        big integer 1G  …

Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c: creation and management of administrators through emcli

By | Database management | No Comments

Cloud Control 12c (and the former Grid Control 11g) offers the possibility to create administrators and manage their privileges through the “emcli” command line utility. The main advantage of this method (based on scripts) is to be able to reproduce the creation of the users as soon as a new Cloud Control infrastructure must be built up (for instance in order to migrate Grid Control 11g on Windows to Cloud Control 12c on Linux). Indeed,…

Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c – Database Target remains in Pending state (SLES x86_64 target)

By | Database management | No Comments

Last month I was confronted to a very interesting and strange problem while deploying a Cloud Control 12c infrastructure. One of my monitored server was a SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 64 bits on which a 11.2.0.3 Oracle database was installed. The x86_64 cloud control 12c agent has been deployed on this server with the standard Cloud Control 12c agent deployment procedure (not the scope of this post). However despite several trials to configure the…
