By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

You are attending the second episode of the MigrationUtil series, today we will change the Docbase Name. If you missed the first one, you can find it here. I did this change on Documentum CS 16.4 with Oracle database, on the same docbase I already used to change the docbase ID. My goal is to do both changes on the same docbase because that’s what I will need in the future.

The first was that of course the source database was in Non-OMF while ODA works fully in OMF.

One command database upgrade on ODA

By | Database Administration & Monitoring | No Comments

The 12.2 finally arrived on ODA and is now available on all generations. Modern ODAs are now supporting, and database engines, and these 3 versions can work together without any problem.

By | Database Administration & Monitoring | No Comments

In this blog let’s talk a little bit about the log-shipping feature from the SQL Server CTP 2.0. First of all, let’s say that as a Windows version, it is possible to create our own solution based on Linux (and cron jobs for example). You may find out different pointers on the internet that deal with this topic. But getting the built-in log-shipping feature from SQL Server presents some advantages. Indeed, this is basically the…
