Upgrade AHF and TFA on an ODA

By | Oracle | 4 Comments

TFA (Trace File Analyzer) is part of AHF (Autonomous Health Framework). Those tools are preinstalled and part of ODA (Oracle Database Appliance). As you might know patching and upgrading are normally always going through ODA global Bundle patches. AHF can, without any problem, be upgraded independently. In this blog I wanted to share with you how I upgraded TFA with latest v21.4 version. The upgrade is performed with root user. This version addresses CVE-2021-45105/CVE-2021-44228/CVE-2021-45046.

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, Database management, Operation systems, Oracle | No Comments

Introduction Patch 19.13 is now available on ODA. It’s time to test it. What’s new? This version brings October’s PSU to database and grid homes with their bug fixes, as usual. It also brings 21.4 for DB Systems (21c being an innovation release, understand just for testing). Something new that some of us have been waiting for a while, a multi-user mode for odacli tasks: you don’t need to be root anymore for managing the…

Move a PDB from a server to another one using NFS

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, Database management, Oracle | No Comments

Introduction Multitenant brings new possibilities regarding Oracle databases, and one of them is to move a database from a container to another quite easily. When containers are on the same server, it’s very easy, but when the containers are on different servers, you will need to use a database link or an RMAN restore. But there is also another solution if you don’t want to use the previous ones: using a NFS volume. Test lab…

ODA 19.12: How can you manage DB Systems with odacli?

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, Database management, Operation systems, Oracle | No Comments

Introduction As virtualization is available for all ODAs now, you could ask yourself if it’s a good idea to use this virtualization or not. Databases can be created as bare metal, but also within a DB System for better isolation. And both can be used on the same ODA. If you’re looking for how to deploy an ODA with KVM virtualization, please have a look at my previous blogpost here. What is a DB System?…

The client is using ODA 19.12. The databases are created on the bare metal and for the applications, we decide to create virtual machines.

ODA 19.11.: ORACLE_HOMEs on ACFS

By | Oracle | 4 Comments

Introduction Beginning with Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) 19.11. the ORACLE_BASE and ORACLE_HOMEs are created on ACFS. That’s good news, because there is much more space on ASM than on the internal disks, i.e. no space issues with /u01 anymore. So how does it work? ORACLE_BASE and ORACLE_HOME on ACFS When installing an ODA from scratch then ORACLE_BASE and ORACLE_HOME are already on ACFS. See an example of a freshly installed ODA X8-2M: [[email protected] ~]# odacli…
