ODA 19.9 has just been released for Bare Metal yesterday, and I had the opportunity to already patch a customer production ODA to this latest version. Through this blog I wanted to share my experience on patching an ODA to 19.9 as well as a new tricky skip-orachk option.
I have been recently deploying some new ODA X8-2-HA. After reimaging and creating the appliance, I had to patch the ODA. The day after, checking status, I could realize that my node 0 was not working as expected. I did some interesting troubleshooting that I wanted to share hoping it might be helpful for someone.
I had recently faced an interesting issue deploying ODA X8-2-HA. I would like to share my experience here hoping it could help some of you.
Through this blog, I would like to show, with a real customer case, how I have been migrating databases in High Availability environment on an ODA. High Availability using Data Guard for Oracle Enterprise Edition or dbvisit for Oracle Standard Edition 2. One of the advantage here would be to use the Standby Database as fallback in case there would be some application issue with new database version. Although, I would expect that for any…

First of all, I would like to mention the great introduction done by the staff team and the great organization. POUG staff team could adapt to the coronavirus situation and organized excellent POUG virtual days. Well done!

During one last ODA project, I was deploying dbvisit software version 9.0.10 on Oracle database SE Edition version 18.7. From time to time I was getting lost write of a data block with type KTU UNDO on the standby. Through this blog, I would like to share my investigation and experience on this subject.
During ODA deployment I could see that starting 18.7, immediately after reimaging or patching the ODA, I was getting some regular errors in the root mail box. The error message came every hour at 13 minutes and 43 minutes.
