Oracle 11g RAC on NFS…

As a follow-on from my 10g RAC on NFS article, I thought it would be nice to have an 11g RAC on NFS article. The process is very similar, with a couple of exceptions: The Virtual IP Configuration Assistant (vipca) runs in silent mode without any problems now. Under 10g, you had to use a […]

Oracle 10g RAC using NFS…

I’ve mentioned it before, but I really like Kevin Closson‘s blog. For some time he’s been evangelizing about Oracle RAC over NFS, so I thought I would give it a go to see what it’s all about and here is the result. Oracle 10g RAC On Linux Using NFS I was only using two machines, […]

Oracle 10gR2 on Fedora 7…

I had a quick go at this installation and it worked OK. I had to load a bunch of FC6 packages to get Oracle to install, link and run properly. It looks like lots of the “compat_*” packages have been removed from Fedora 7, which is a problem as Oracle 10g needs them. The “libaio” […]

Oracle Database 10g for Windows Vista…

I’ve been on holiday for a few days, so this latest release passed me by. Oracle Database 10g Downloads Cheers Tim… PS. Please don’t ask me for help installing Oracle on Vista. I’ve never done it and I don’t plan on trying. Instead I would advise you use VMware Server or Virtual Box to run […]

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5)…

I’ve been having a play with the beta 2 of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5). RHEL5 Installation Oracle Database 10g Release 2 on RHEL5 Having seen the various Fedora Core versions released since RHEL4, I knew what to expect from RHEL5, but somehow I hoped for a bit more. If just feels like RHEL4 […]

Fedora Core 6 (FC6)…

Fedora Core 6 (FC6) was released while I was away at OpenWorld, so I thought I better update my draft installation documents: Fedora Core 6 (FC6) Installation Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.1) Installation On Fedora Core 6 (FC6) Oracle Application Server 10g Release 3 (10.1.3) Installation On Fedora Core 6 (FC6) Cheers Tim…

Oracle 10g Release 2 on Solaris 10…

Well, it was released and I have VMware, so I thought I would give it a go. I’ve not used Solaris for a while so I hit a few stumbling blocks, but I got the installation to work in the end: Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.2) Installation On Solaris 10 (x86) Given the choice […]

FC6 Draft Articles…

I’ve written a couple of draft installation articles for DB10g R2 and AS10g R3 on Fedora Core 6 (Test 2). Oracle DB10g R2 Installation On Fedora Core 6 (FC6) Oracle AS10g R3 Installation On Fedora Core 6 (FC6) I’ll revisit the articles once the final version of FC6 is released. I’m hoping the warning at […]

Hallelujah…

OK. It’s been a long wait, but 10g Release 2 is now available for Tru64. There is still no sign of the 10.1.0.4 or 10.1.0.5 patches, but you can’t have everything. Of course, the big issue now is, how can I persuade the company to go for a migration??? This is definitely the last release […]

Rules Manager (tip of the iceberg)…

I’ve been having a play with the Rules Manager introduced in Oracle 10g Release 2. There is quite a bit of functionality in there, so my article is just a “tip of the iceberg” type of thing. This would have come in extremely handy in two previous jobs, both of which required quite complex state-event […]
