When you have read my blog before, you notice immediately that this blog post is not technical at all. Sometimes in life, there are moments that unique opportunities cross your path. That happened to me to. 1st of Februari 2019 I have joined the mothership Oracle as Product Manager For Data Guard. First of all, I want to do a big shoutout to Exitas, my (now) former employer. I worked with them for more than 10 years and I enjoyed…
This time I don’t want to say thank you to a particular Oracle Feature, but I want to highlight the entire Oracle Community. It started a couple of years ago. After a nice project implementing OVM on Exadata, Philippe Fierens convinced me to start speaking at conferences. Since then, I did not regret any second of that decision. The Oracle Community is such a warm group of people. The cool part is, you don’t have to be shy! Everyone makes mistakes…
It all starts with creation of a database on a Database appliance which failed with the error
Validation of server pool succeeded.
Registering database with Oracle Restart
PRCR-1006 : Failed to add resource ora.demodb.db for demodb
PRCR-1071 : Failed to register or update resource ora.demodb.db
CRS-2566: User 'oracle' does not have sufficient permissions to operate on resource 'ora.redo.datastore.acfs', which is part of the dependency specification.
DBCA_PROGRESS : DBCA Operation failed.
One of the things … is it due to running on the ODA or is it a general cluster issue? It was easy to verify as this customer had another ODA on which everything just works smoothly. So we started to compare the environments. One tiny little thing appeared to be different: the ACL. On a working ODA:
[grid@ODA_A-1 ~]$ crsctl status resource ora.redo.datastore.acfs -p |grep ACL
A while ago I was asked to implement a filesystem backup on a windows server. How hard could it be and basically it’s not too difficult. Only one minor thing is not too well documented and I would like to highlight this here. In this particular setup the service was running under the local system account. Personally I would like to see it under a local user account. In order to be able to perform a succesfull filesystem backup, we…
Sometimes it’s time to upgrade. So the I decided to add the oracle 12c thin client to my mac a couple of weeks ago. Yes I know, I was very happy with the oldy-but-goodie 10g version, but ok. The 12c instant client is very easy to install. I remember it took quite some time to install the 10g version, so happy about that. Unzipping the zipfiles, 2 symlinks and then a bit personal config in my .profile. So far so…
Well that’s it guys. I moved from tumblr ( http://vanpupi.tumblr.com ) to wordpress to have some more flexibility, mostly for the code-tags actually. We’ll see where it will bring us.
