Snap Clone on Exadata

Recently I created a new screenwatch that walks you through the new features of Snap Clone on Exadata in Enterprise Manager 12c version 12.1.0.5. The screenwatch walked through using Snap Clone on Exadata, both from a multi-tenant architecture perspective and a standard non container database perspective. Unfortunately, putting both together meant the resultant video was around 20 minutes long.

Generally, we try to make our screenwatches shorter than that, as the evidence tends to show people lose concentration and interest if the screenwatches are that long. So we decided to split the screenwatch in two. One part would be for vanilla Snap Clone on Exadata, and the other was for Snap Clone Multitenant on Exadata.

Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance with EM12c, (ZDLRA)

I had a chance to take a closer look at the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance, (ZDLRA) via Cloud Control today and really liked the dashboard that’s included in the plugin for the product.  This post isn’t going to cover the installation of the plugin or configuration-  I was just intrigued by the dashboard and wanted to go over the great features that are part of it.

A First Technical Look At Hybrid Cloning in EM12c Release 5

The sales, support and technical teams were brought into the Denver Tech Center office to do some advanced training in Hybrid Cloud.  There were many take-aways from the days we spent in the office, (which is saying a lot-  most of you likely know how much I hate working anywhere but from home… :)) and I thought I would share a bit of this information with those th

12.1.0.5 Hybrid Cloud Cloning

Last week’s release of 12.1.0.5 was a pleasant surprise for everyone out in the Oracle world.  This release hit the bulls-eye for another cloud target of Oracle’s, announcing the introduction of Enterprise Manager 12c’s offering a single pane of glass management of the hybrid cloud.

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 5 (12.1.0.5) : My first two installations

em-12cI’ve done a couple of play installations of EM12c 12.1.0.5, just to get a feel for it. You can see the result of that here.

From an installation perspective, everything was pretty similar to the previous releases. I tried the installation on both OL5 and OL6, in both cases using 12c as the database repository. No dramas there.

A couple of things of note.

  1. The 12c repository template database is a Non-CDB architecture.
  2. The Weblogic installation uses Java6.

Interesting…

EM Express versus EM Cloud Control

Recently I was asked the question “What is the real difference between EM Cloud Control [NOTE: I’ll refer to this as EM12c through the rest of this post] and EM Database Express in 12c?” It was (for me) a pretty easy question to answer, but I wanted to provide the questioner with a link to the place in the Enterprise Manager documentation where it covers that in detail. Somewhat to my surprise, I wasn’t able to find such a link – well, not quickly anyway. I think the reason for that is the documentation for EM Express (as it’s more commonly abbreviated to) falls under the database documentation which is owned by a different group in Oracle than the Enterprise Manager documentation. Well, that’s my speculation anyway. It may just be there in the documentation and I couldn’t find it in my quick search.

Installing Enterprise Manager 12c For Testing

A question I get asked fairly often when I’m at conferences, either during the Q&A for my sessions or in general chit chat (a.k.a. networking) afterwards is “I want to play around with the features in Enterprise Manager 12c but don’t want to do that in our Production environment. How do I go about installing a copy of Enterprise Manager 12c somewhere else in the easiest way as a test environment?” The answer to that is pretty straightforward. It’s to download the relevant VM template from Oracle’s Software Delivery Cloud. Note: The screenshots shown in this post are from the new and enhanced Oracle Software Delivery Cloud, rather than the classic Software Delivery Cloud, so if you use the classic form your screens will be different. On the first screen, make sure you understand the export restrictions and click “Accept”:

Troubleshooting Target Status Availability Issues

If you’ve been using EM12c (or any of its precursors for that matter), you’d know that it can sometimes be problematic to troubleshoot an availability issue for targets.  You can see they might be up (hopefully!), down, pending, unreachable or showing a metric collection error, but understanding what’s causing that particular status (and indeed why it can sometimes be wrong) can be difficult at times.
