12cR2: Upgrade by remote clone – workaround ORA-17630 in DBaaS

By | Database Administration & Monitoring | 2 Comments

By Franck Pachot . Easier than unplug/plug, you can move pluggable databases with remote cloning. It’s the same idea but you don’t have to manage the files yourself: the are shipped through database link. However, this uses the ‘remote file protocol’ and it fails with version mismatch: ORA-17628: Oracle error 17630 returned by remote Oracle server ORA-17630: Mismatch in the remote file protocol version client server

12cR2: How long to upgrade a PDB?

By | Database Administration & Monitoring | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . In the previous post I described how simple it is to unplug a PDB and plug it into a newer version CDB. One goal of dictionary separation in the multitenant architecture is to keep system objects on CDB$ROOT only.

12cR2: CREATE_FILE_DEST for PDB isolation

By | Database Administration & Monitoring | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . Two years ago I filled an OTN idea to ‘Constrain PDB datafiles into specific directory’ and made it an enhancement request for 12c Release 2.

Of course this is not acceptable in a cloud environment. 12.1 has a parameter for directories (PATH_PREFIX) and 12.2 brings CREATE_FILE_DEST for datafiles.

Oracle 12cR2: MAX_PDBS

By | Database Administration & Monitoring | 4 Comments

By Franck Pachot . Oracle database 12.2 is there on the Database Cloud Service, in multitenant. In EE High Performance or Extreme Performance, you have the multitenant option: you can create 4096 pluggable database (instead of 252 in 12.1). If you are in lower services, you can create only one user PDB (not counting application root and proxy PDB). If you are in Standard Edition, it’s simple: it is a hard limit. If you are…
