Oracle 12cR1 RAC Installation on Windows 2012 Using VirtualBox…

After having a play with Oracle 12c on Windows 8, I decided to give Windows Server 2012 a go. Here is the resulting virtual RAC installation. Oracle Database 12c Release 1 RAC On Windows 2012 Using VirtualBox As you would expect, much of the process is pretty similar to the 11gR2 RAC installation on Windows […]

UKOUG Speaker Evaluations…

This is a bit of a vanity post, so excuse me blowing my own trumpet. I just took a look at the speaker evaluation feedback from UKOUG 2012 and it was pretty good. Only 4 of the people left “wordy” feedback: Could have done with more time. Just the sort of presentation I came to conference […]

UKOUG 2012

The UKOUG 2012 conference was a rather short affair for me this year as I was only there for 1 day of it. During the Sunday I was at my nephew’s birthday party. In the evening I returned to Birmingham in time to make it to the Oracle ACE dinner. Big thanks to Debra Lilley […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 5

Day 5 was a presentations day for me. I tried to make as many notes as I could, but you will see the quality and accuracy of the notes tail off as the day went along… Tom’s Top 12 Things About the Latest Generation of Database Technology My bullets don’t quite match Tom’s, which is […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 4

My RAC Attack session was pretty early, so I headed straight there for the morning. The OCP lounge always has drinks and food, so regular pitstops there are the norm for me at OOW. If you have OCP or above, it’s really worth dropping by on the first day and getting your ribbons, so you […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 3

Day 3 was similar to day 2 for me. I spent a lot of time hanging around the RAC Attack sessions. A lot of people pass through, so in addition to helping people set up virtualized RAC, there are always interesting people to talk to. I did some serious demo grounds cruising again, including: Data […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 2

The cold continues… I decided than rather than trying to sit in sessions and struggle to cope I would do my stint at RAC Attack and spend the day on the demo grounds… The demo grounds are a really awesome way to get information because you are often speaking to the developers and product specialists working […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 1

Day 1 turned out to be a little awkward for me because I was feeling pretty under the weather. I’ve been nursing a very minor cold for a couple of weeks and I think the lack of sleep has made it kick up a gear. I went to a DB tuning session and an ADF […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day Minus 1

After another night with little sleep, Saturday was a chance to recover. I had no formal plans for the morning. I registered for OOW, then went out for breakfast with Marcelle, who then had to shoot to MySQL Connect. From there I went back to my room for a little rest, then it was out […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day Minus 2

Day 2 of the ACE Director briefing went pretty much to plan. My recent adventures in WebLogic meant I had to pay special attention to a few areas I would normally let wash over me. I also learned a few things about the WebLogic roadmap that made me kick myself for some of the recent […]
