UKOUG Day 4: Oracle Cloud Control 12c for DBAs

By | Technology Survey | No Comments

Today’s first session was a round table session with Andrew Bullock, Director of Application and systems management at Oracle. The main result of this session was that the main people using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c were DBA and not so much system or Weblogic Administrators. It appears also that not so many DBA have realized in production the upgrade from Grid Control 11g to Cloud Control 12c, because in case of a huge number…

By | Database management | No Comments

Together with Oracle Database 12c, Oracle has introduced a new administration console named Oracle Enterprise Manager Express (Oracle OEM Express). This “light” version of Enterprise Manager Database Console – which is not supported in Oracle 12c anymore – is a management product built into Oracle Database 12c.

To find the correct queue destination I had to search the Queue Destination Name….
